Folkworks

Gigs, workshops, summer schools and festivals that celebrate folk and traditional music, song and dance.

Folkworks

Folkworks is our leading programme of gigs, workshops, summer schools and festivals that celebrate folk and traditional music, song and dance. Established in 1988 to promote the folk music of the North East, over the last thirty years Folkworks has led the way in promoting North East traditional music across the region and beyond.

Now part of Sage Gateshead, Folkworks continues to provide world class learning experiences whilst promoting the best of the national and international folk scene on stage.  We believe that folk music is important because of the stories it tells and the people it brings together, and think that the living traditions found across our region should be celebrated, played and enjoyed!

Our Folkworks Learn programme includes Folkworks Tuesday (adult classes), Folkestra and Folkworks Saturdays (youth folk ensembles), Folkworks Summer Schools, schools performances and other workshops across the year.

Our Folkworks Live programme includes our regular gigs, Folk on the Tyne festival, family performances, relaxed performance, artist development and our annual Christmas ceilidhs.
