The Lockdown Stream 4 – Our Pick for This Week

The Lockdown Stream 4

Welcome to The Lockdown Stream 4.

We have picked some more of our favourites ‘watch again’ gigs from the last week 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.

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.


Lockdown mayhem with Mr Tea and the Minions.
