Front Room Gigs

Folk on Foot is delighted to present The Front Room Gigs, exclusively for our Heroes. This online concert series will consist of intimate one-hour gigs, hosted by Matthew Bannister, featuring:

  • Karine Polwart (25th Sep ’22)

The gigs will take place live on Zoom from 3–4pm UK time on Sunday afternoons, with an audience limited to just 10 people, drawn at random from our Folk on Foot Heroes. As well as watching the gig live, the lucky winners will also have a chance to chat to the artists and ask questions.

But don’t worry if your name doesn’t come up; we’ll record the gig and give the film to all our Heroes the very next day.
