National Youth Folk Ensemble Sampler Day

One of 9 Sampler Days across the UK, this event is an opportunity for young musicians aged 14 – 18 to attend creative workshops with a team of professional folk artists, with selected musicians going on to the London finals for Youth Folk Ensemble membership.

Led by the Ensemble’s Artistic Director, BBC Radio 2’s Folk Musician of the Year 2015 Sam Sweeney, each Sampler Day will include creative workshops with a team of professional folk artists, individual auditions, and a question and answer session with Ensemble staff.

Selected musicians will be invited to a final audition in London in July. To register for the Exeter Sampler Day, musicians have to be aged between 14 and 18 on 1 September 2016, live in England, be able to play confidently on any instrument and have an interest in folk music.

Places on the Sampler Day are free but limited and booking is essential. Book here >>
