ARTIST OPEN CALL
We accept applications to showcase from folk, roots or acoustic musicians who are either English or resident in England. Applications to perform in 2023 are now open until Sunday 15th January 2023.
Showcasing artists receive a fee and a free conference pass. They are listed in the English Folk Expo delegate app. We strongly encourage showcasing artists to ensure that either they or their representative purchase a delegate pass to the English Folk Expo conference.
Most showcasing artists perform on Manchester Folk Festival stages, with the remaining showcasing artists performing at English Folk Expo private delegate only showcases such as receptions.
