Prom 4: Folk Day 1
Time 3.30pm - c6.00pm

From the deep-rooted influence on Vaughan Williams’s music to the ongoing rise of young British folk musicians, this year’s Proms Folk Day offers the chance to immerse yourself in music, dance and storytelling.

With its ability to characterise a community, folk music offers a unique reflection of different cultures and traditions. Many composers across the centuries have taken inspiration from folk tunes, drawing their colourful scales and vigorous rhythms into the world of Western classical music.
Programme to include:

Traditional Folk songs

Folk-song-inspired works by Grainger and Vaughan Williams (15 mins)

Berio - Folk Songs (25 mins)

Trad. arr. Folkestra - Folk music from the British Isles (15 mins)

Folk music from Transylvania, the Eastern Carpathian Mountains and Moldova (15 mins)

Bartók - Romanian Dances (13 mins) interspersed with traditional folk-song settings

Kathryn Tickell
New arrangement (BBC commission: world premiere) (c8 mins)

Monica Bacelli mezzo-soprano
Bella Hardy singer
London Young Musicians
London Sinfonietta
Martyn Brabbins (conductor)

Prom 5: Folk Day 2
Time 7.30pm - c9.30pm

Following the free afternoon concert exploring how folk music has influenced classical composers, Proms Folk Day’s evening concert focuses on artists who are continuing, reviving and reinterpreting the traditions of English folk music.

Tonight’s Prom presents a fascinating picture of the many directions folk music is taking, and includes appearances from Derbyshire-born singer Bella Hardy, guitarist Martin Simpson and the boisterous 11-piece big band Bellowhead – winners of three Radio 2 Folk Awards.

To include sets by:

Bella Hardy (singer)
Martin Simpson (singer/guitar)

    Did anyone happen to rip a bootleg of the Bellowhead set off the radio? It went on for a short while after the TV show finished and I'd love to get more of their live stuff to listen to, especially as it has some songs from Matachin which I haven't been able to see as they seldom come to Scotland and I can't afford to fly down to see them for a fourth time.

    Well I only caught a short bit if the prom (on TV), but thankfully it was mainly Bella Hardy. I guess it was the second/later prom because Martin Simpson was on after her. This was the first time I've ever really stopped to listen to Folk, and I wish I'd had more time now! Bella has a truly perfect voice: amazing pure and enchanting. I only caught two of her songs, and enjoyed them so much that I ordered the CD off Amazon! I hope she it singing there next year - if so I'll definitely make an effort to get there!
