Our work in our local community:

JSL Events, the company behind Folk by the Oak, is based in Herefordshire. We are passionate about folk music and keen to share Folk by the Oak's network of talented artists with our local community.

Working closely with local schools we bring workshops and performances by professional, acoustic, Folk and even Transatlantic Americana musicians to state schools in rural Herefordshire. 

Since 2016 we have organised 11 school workshops/performances and are so very grateful to all the incredible artists who have participated:

Alden, Patterson & Dashwood | Calan | Lady Maisery Mrs H and the Sing-along Band | Rheingans Sisters | The Small Glories | The Bookshop BandThe Hut People | The Young'uns

The Spell Songs Youth Project: 

A platform for young talented musicians | A place to build confidence | An opportunity to learn new creative skills | Helping to expand environmental awareness | A unique chance for creative self-expression!

Folk by the Oak are so proud to be embarking on our first musical youth group project, inspired by our latest commission, The Lost Words: Spell Songs.

Originally scheduled for April 2020, Covid has put this on hold, but won’t hold us back in the long run!
