From April onwards, you'll be able to get your copy of one of the country's top folk and traditional music magazines at all our events.

The Living Tradition is a full colour, bi-monthly Folk & Traditional music magazine that has been in publication for some years now. In that time the magazine has built a great reputation and solid readership base around the globe. Based in Ayrshire, Scotland and Donegal, Ireland, a dedicated team of folk and traditional music enthusiasts are the people responsible for the running of The Living Tradition, with their past experience ranging from events organisation to live performing. 

Each issue costs just £3.25, and we're thrilled to be able to bring it to you as part of our commitment to providing a great experience of folk, roots and acoustic music in Downend and the surrounding area. You can find out more about the  magazine and the team behind it via their website

And watch this space for more exciting Downend Folk Club news towards the end of this week!



The new edition of Downend Matters is dropping on local doorsteps right now, and if you leaf through a few pages you'll find a great article about Downend Folk Club!

The article is not available as a webpage, so here's a picture so you can see for yourselves.

We've enjoyed great coverage from our local publications so far. Long may it continue!

We are as excited about the impending gig from the recently-crowned BBC Radio 2 Folk Singer of the Year as the article makes us sound, and we're also very grateful for the fantastic support Downend Voice are giving us.

Oh, and congratulations on the award, Bella!
