Brighton's Front Room Folk formed in the spring of 2011. We've played a lot of Celtic stuff, some English, some French, Swedish, American, some klezmer, even some John Barry. Sometimes we sing.
The idea was that we would not be like conventional sessions which can be quite scary to newcomers and sometimes become pretty earnest. Instead, we like to play in front rooms where we can chat, swap tunes musical tips and eat snacks. Some of us are brilliant. Some of us struggle to keep up. We all have a lot of fun. But we've also ended up playing festivals, ceilidhs, street parties, gigs, St Patrick's days and Burns nights and of course our weekly Sunday night session at the Chimney House.
Check our diary to find out what we're up to and please pop along to say hello some time.
