Celebrating An Evening of Folk Music

West Berkshire Villagers | Events | What’s On | Things to Do

If you’ve missed live music as much as we have during the pandemic, you’ll be thrilled to hear we’re putting on an evening of folk: three amazing bands will be joining us for an evening festival in our beautiful new orchard.

From 4pm, enjoy slow cooked pork rolls, footlong hot dogs and our delightful beer from Dave the mobile bar, before immersing yourself in folk music surrounded by fairy lights and boho bunting in our own little woodland*.

Although we know you don’t need a reason to party… “An Evening of Folk” was born from a desire to support musicians and the music industry after such a terrible time. With live performances, rehearsals and tours cancelled since March 2020, musicians across the UK not only saw their incomes wiped out, but also saw them unable to do what they loved: performing and creating, having a huge impact on their mental wellbeing. “An Evening of Folk” will provide an opportunity for some local musicians to thrive again, serenading our lovely punters, with 50p from every pint donated to ‘Help Musicians’ who support emerging, professional and retired musicians.

Sets will include the musical extravaganza that are Feast of Fiddles – with 27 years under their belt, every guest brought along to their gig is an immediate convert. With multiple genres including folk and rock, each of their sets are crafted superbly to suit the fiddle.

We’ll also have indie folk duo Fly Yeti Fly: these Wiltshire based musicians blend vocal harmonies with intricate guitar arrangements, mandolin and harmonica! Their sounds are reminiscent to he late 60s folk scene, and their music is heavily inspired by their travels and life on the Kennet and Avon Canal.

£4 from your £5 entry fee will also be donated to charity: Nordoff Robbins are the UK’s leading music therapy charity who’s dedicated team bring high quality music therapy to those with life-limiting illnesses. More information on this wonderful charity can be found here.

*UK weather might have other ideas, in which case music will be performed inside the Taproom.


Fly Yetti Fly

“Fly Yeti Fly are a seriously incredible duo … just stunning…” BBC Introducing Devon

“Once upon a time, a little piece of acoustic magic formed down in Devon and called itself Fly Yeti Fly….” Tim Carroll, FolkWords

Feast of Fiddles

A few months back, Annya and I attended our first concert at the Apex. The band we were to see was Feast of Fiddles and right from the off, they grabbed your senses.. Their music spanned rock, folk and other genres and was crafted superbly to suit fiddle, guitar, sax, clarinet, keyboards and last but no means least, the melodeon.
