London Youth Folk Ensemble

Since 2014 the opening slot on our Acorn Stage has been given to the London Youth Folk Ensemble (LYFE).

In 2021 we were sadly unable to host our Acorn Stage, but instead LYFE performed brilliantly in an open air space in the arena, delighting and enthralling the many people who headed over to enjoy these incredible young musicians! 

Set up by EFDSS in 2013, LYFE brings together committed young folk musicians with professional folk musicians to create and perform folk music from the British Isles and beyond. 

The Ensemble is currently led by Columbian guitarist, singer & choir leader Camilo Menjura and violinist, singer and songwriter Alexandra Patterson.
