Folk Nations is an exciting concept that highlights folk culture from the UK and India. The project brings together musicians, artists, and the wider creative community to share ideas and explore new work. An idea that began in 2012, Folk Nations has now worked with over 60 artists from England, Scotland, Wales, and India in showcase performances, artist residencies, networking opportunities, and outreach workshops. It continues to grow and embrace new and contemporary music with a folk core.
This troupe is an outcome of Folk Nations, a programme by British Council that highlights folk culture across the UK and India through music. The three-city India tour will witness performances by renowned musicians Patsy Reid (Scotland), Hannah James (England), Georgia Ruth (Wales), Saurav Moni (India), Suhail Yusuf Khan (India) and James Mackintosh (Scotland). It represents a delicate weaving of UK and Indian folk that speaks immediately to the cultural heritage of these regions as well as its place in the contemporary music industry.
