Guide to New Folk Promoters

Download the new resource from FolkArts England

Whatever the style of the event, the interpretation of “folk music” or the size of the venue, there are some guiding principles that can be identified that will help new folk promoters find their way through the process.  From early idle thoughts to the day of the first show, this newly published guide helps readers take their first steps to promoting Folk in all its forms and also acts as a refresher for those already doing it.

Available now as a download on our site

The Guide for New Promoters evolved through a fairly lengthy process. Firstly in the Jazz world, it was promoted and conceived by Jazz Services. Then, at the suggestion of Chris Hodgkins, Director of Jazz Services, FolkArts England adapted the work for use by new folk promoters.  Thanks are due to the original authors Joan Morrell and Dan Somogyi for their crusading work, to Chris Hodgkins of Jazz Services for this opportunity to build on the original work and to my colleague and well practiced club organiser, Alan Bearman who now joins me in offering this FAE resource to you – good luck.
