London Youth Folk Ensemble 2019

When we first added a second stage to our festival in 2012, our aim was to offer our audience a full day of wall to wall sublime music while simultaneously creating a platform for a new generation of folk artists. So the Acorn Stage was born, and since 2014 the opening slot has been given to the London Youth Folk Ensemble (LYFE).

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 that performed at Folk by the Oak 2019 was once again led by folk musician Emily Askew with Ruairi Glasheen
