Come and see Solasta play live for The Young Folk Club!
As well as performing for us, this outstanding young folk trio will answer questions about their folk careers, and lead us in playing some music together. Anyone aged 12-25 is welcome to come to this alcohol-free event. Bring an instrument or your voice, or just come to listen and chat!
