It gives us great pleasure to announce that Tradfolk will be working as media partners with FolkEast this year. The festival runs between August 19th and 21st, at Glenham Hall, Suffolk, and the Tradfolk team will be in attendance, hosting artist interviews, a late-night singing session, and filming artists exclusively performing traditional folk songs behind the scenes. All of this content will be available on our brand new FolkEast x Tradfolk content hub, launched this morning.
The hub also features as much info as you could possibly need on the festival, and we promise to bring you even more in the run-up to the mid-August weekend. For the time being, you’ll find line-up info (as we currently have it), umpteen things we love about FolkEast (including artists’ comments and suggestions from our readers), and an FAQ with all your questions answered. Bookmark the hub and come back to it over the coming weeks to find out more.
Festival Director, Becky Marshall-Potter, explains, “FolkEast is delighted to welcome Tradfolk on board as official 2022 media partners for the 10-year celebrations. Tradfolk‘s inclusive approach to folk reaches beyond the music and embraces the arts, heritage and people, tapping into what we hold very dear to our hearts here at FolkEast.”
Tradfolk editor, Jon Wilks, continued, “We’re so pleased to have been invited to FolkEast this year, and to be offered the chance to work together as media partners after so brief an existence as a publication ourselves. We love how FolkEast combines the homely with the innovative, and I can’t wait to see what new collaborations they manage to pull out of their hats this year. We’ll be running a little FolkEast hub on our website in the run-up to the festival and throughout the weekend, so keep an eye on that for behind-the-scenes videos, interviews with the artists, videos, live blogs… we’ve got so many plans!”
