YOUTH FOLK AWARD
The Allen Valleys Folk Festival’s latest Youth Folk Award was presented to Jack Famelton, pictured with event sponsor Gareth Jones, MD of Red Hot Property. 15 year-old Jack from Langley was originally inspired to take up the Northumbrian pipes by a school visit from Kathryn Tickell six years ago. His prize includes £100 cash and a paid performance at this year’s festival. Our thanks to Red Hot Property for their enthusiasm and financial support. The 2021 Youth Folk Award will be announced later this year with information posted here and on social media.
