Area 2 Youth Programme
Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings
Hosted by Sam Pirt (The Hut People) & Dave Gray.
The festival has developed an exciting programme of events dedicated to, and run by, young people. It is a stage for the next generation of singers, musicians and bands that are just coming onto the folk scene.
Here are a few names you may recognise that have taken part in the Area 2 programme in previous years:
Sarah Horn & James Cudworth, Moore, Moss & Rutter, Gentlemen of Few, Sail Pattern, Folkestra, Kimber/Paul and many more!
So if you want to see the stars of the future, come along to Area 2, you will not be disappointed.
“Beverley Folk Festival and in particular Area 2, in my opinion is an absolutely amazing opportunity for young musicians, developing musicians, to come and play here and learn their skills on a smaller stage before they are put on the bigger stage…..You can’t really find that opportunity at many other festivals. Beverley almost uniquely provides that…it’s great.” Jim Molyneux
