A fresh approach to a timeless tradition - with an eclectic mix of contemporary and traditional music where instrument, song, dance, poetry, art & heritage craft skills and  knowledge are shared and collaborations born. FolkEast re-kindles the Eastfolk annual folk moot on the Glemham Hall Estate, where, for three days of the year, the folk of the East and their families gather for a bit of a to-do.

 

Folk music and art at its best, from near and far, with an added Suffolk twist.
