The Lockdown Stream 1 – New Folking Feature

The Lockdown Stream 1

Welcome to The Lockdown Stream 1

We have picked some our favourites ‘watch again’ gigs from the last week or so which we have been sharing daily across both the folking official Facebook group and main folking Facebook page. As most of you know, the current situation with the lockdown is hitting musicians hard so please, if you can, show your appreciation for the performances by either dropping a couple of quid into their ‘tip jars’ (where provided) or by going to their website and buying some of their music.

Unfortunately, not all of the video streams can be embedded here so links are provided to access the ones that don’t show below (you can also try and refresh your browser if some of the streams don’t load).

Please note… Some artists or venues take their live streams down after a week or so. We will continue to monitor the status of the streams and remove any artists or venue where we find that the videos no longer work.


Here is Richard Thompson’s live stream from last Sunday with special guest, the hoover and Zara Phillips administering a splash of TLC.
