Folk On Foot Festival 3: TOGETHER AGAIN

Help us to stage another amazing virtual folk festival on August Bank Holiday Monday – 31st August  – and give your support to musicians who’ve lost their livelihoods during the coronavirus lockdown.

Folk on Foot Festival 3: TOGETHER AGAIN will re-unite musicians who haven’t been able to play together during the lockdown.  They will film a series of 30 minute sets in spectacular or quirky locations and we’ll put them together into a show lasting over 6 and a half hours.

The lineup:
The Breath (Rioghnach Connolly and Stuart McCallum)
Eliza Carthy and David Delarre
Johnny Flynn and his band
Julie Fowlis, Éamon Doorley and Duncan Chisholm
Karine Polwart, Steven Polwart and Inge Thomson
Kris Drever, John McCusker and Phil Cunningham
Lady Nade, Kit Hawes and Aaron Catlow
Nancy Kerr, Martin Simpson and Andy Cutting
Peggy Seeger with her sons Neill and Calum MacColl
Rachel Newton and Lauren MacColl
Sam Lee and his band
Show of Hands (Steve Knightley and Phil Beer)
Spiers and Boden

When: August Bank Holiday Monday 31st August from 2pm BST for over six and a half hours of unique music.

Where: from the Folk on Foot YouTube Channel and Facebook page – direct to your front room.

Donate to make it happen
Half the money we raise will go to the charity Help Musicians – which supports musicians undergoing financial hardship – and the other half will be divided equally between the artists who take part in the Festival. Music is hugely important in lifting our spirits and salving our souls in these troubling times, so please make a donation to support the talented people who create it.


How your donations will be processed
This fundraising campaign is run by Matthew Bannister, the host of Folk On Foot, and Owen Ralph, the podcast's Digital Marketing Manager. Once the campaign has closed, Matthew will withdraw the money from GoFundMe directly (under his full name, Richard Matthew Bannister). 50% of the money raised will be shared between the artists, who will be paid directly by bank transfer. The other 50% will be paid directly to Help Musicians UK via bank transfer.
