FOLK IN THE BARN - COVID REQUIREMENTS - UPDATE 27 JAN 2022

Seeing as the number of deaths from Covid isn't falling and cases are still high, we shall be continuing with our Covid Prevention Measures, until such time as both these things improve considerably.  This means we ask all attendees to please take a lateral flow test on the day of the concert and bring proof of your negative result OR bring proof of full vaccination if you are unable to test.   Please also, wear a good quality (three layer or FFP2/N95) face mask whilst in the building, removing only to eat or drink.   These precautions are not only protect ourselves, and the other members of the audience, some of whom may be vulnerable, but also the musicians (and promoters) who are still suffering the effects of very little work at all during 2020/2021.    We understand the health risk to those vaxxed and boosted is now low, but having to cancel and reschedule a tour - again - after two years of doing so repeatedly would be unthinkable. 

On questioning two large groups of gig goers on facebook last week, after the Gov't announced the removal of legal restrictions, 84% of those asked supported the protective measures remaining in place.

We all really enjoyed the gig and feel well and truly privileged to have worked with such a professional and friendly team. Joe's B and B was superb too! -  Elbow Jane


I can't imagine life without Folk in the Barn now! It has provided a lovely focus for hearing new music and performers, in beautiful settings. I can honestly say I have enjoyed each gig I have been to and now have a great collection of cd's to prove it. Angela Barnes

A vital part of preserving the rich heritage of traditional music in Britain is enabling people to see and hear that music played live, and so be inspired to learn more about the music and play it themselves. Folk in the Barn is an outstanding example of the courage and commitment required to ensure that our unique musical heritage not only survives but can grow and continue to develop. Chris Shilling

Huge congratulations to ALL concerned with FITB. Truly the best thing regarding original live music to have happened to Kent for many a year. Thank you so much for bringing us such wonderful artists, time and time again Arcelia

Big thanks to Folk in the Barn for continuing to hunt out and lure to the depths of East Kent, exciting and inspiring performers. Gregory Alan Isakov, his band and the support artist he brought with him were all amazing!!  Danni
