All This Season’s Staff

Volunteer staff help organise and lead musical activities, with daily workshops, singarounds and ceilidhs. Many of our members are second or third generation Folk Campers and have grown up coming to Folk Camps every summer. It’s where they have learned their music, dances, songs. It is often where they met their partner. Many skilled musicians already volunteer to staff at our camps where, in return for a free holiday, they organise music workshops and coordinate the evening bands. Over the years, many professional musicians have attended Folk Camps and some of them are regularly staff members at our camps.
