Southampton Folk Orchestra

Southampton Folk Orchestra is an open access group that plays traditional folk music with connections to the local area. The group creates arrangements of tunes together and performs at least once a term. The orchestra welcomes all players of acoustic instruments from confident experienced musicians to beginners – even if you can only play a few notes! We’ll learn tunes and arrangements from music or by ear, whichever you prefer.

The tutor for Southampton Folk Orchestra is Cath Watkins, who plays some wonderful fiddle music. There will be two performances in St Lawrence's Church, come and hear some lovely music. For more information see
