"...one of the county’s best weekends of music." - Oxford Mail
Folk Weekend Oxford 2021
Friday 16th - Sunday 18th April 2021
The Show will go on. Watch this space!
March and April 2020 was a whole new experience for the FWO Committee and our fabulous partners. In the space of 5 weeks we moved our festival on-line and our audiences had the opportunity to enjoy two and a half days of glorious folk music streamed into the comfort of their living rooms.
Since then we have continued that success with our #LiveToYourLivingRoom events, offering the chance to buy tickets to watch top class folk musicians, streaming live from their own homes, on a weekly basis into the homes of our audience. We have ensured that our concerts are as near as possible to those 'old-fashioned' in-venue events pre-COVID; with professional sound engineering, comperes to introduce and run the events, audience participation and a chance to show appreciation for the music with applause and interaction. We are proud that we have played a huge part in supporting our folk musicians during this unprecedented time, allowing them both the opportunity to do what they love, to an audience, and earn some much-needed income.
Those amazing Zoom concerts have now moved over to our new, sister organisation - #LiveToYourLivingRoom. Head to their website https://livetoyourlivingroom.com/ for information on some wonderful upcoming concerts.
Whilst we are planning for FWO 2021, we are offering live music here too. Please see our What's On page for details of our forthcoming FWO Zoom concert and information on our Oxfordshire Local Folk Takeover live performances via our Facebook page.
