Who we are and what we play
We are a group of muscians who meet to play traditional and contemporary folk music from around the world. The instruments we play include guitars, mandolins, bouzouki, fiddles, accordians, melodians, concertinas, recorders, flutes, whistles, bodhrans and cellos. We meet regularly to play (for dates see rehearsals page) and at garden parties and other events over the summer.
Adopt a Composer
In September 2019 we were delighted to be one of 7 groups to be selected by ‘Making Music’ to adopt a composer. We will be working for the next year with the composer Jonathan Brigg to produce a new piece of music specially written for the orchestra which we will then showcase in a concert. For the latest information on this project see the SFO Blog.
Adopt a Composer is run by Making Music in partnership with Sound and Music, funded by PRS Foundation and the Philip and Dorothy Green Music Trust.
