Enjoying the Revival of Traditional Folk Music

Music  plays a big part in our own life at Little Trewern, and one of the things we value most about living in this area is that we can enjoy musical offerings from almost every tradition and style.

Folk Music

If you come to stay at Little Trewern, and you play a instrument, then feel free to bring your fiddle, uilleann  pipes, bodhran or whatever you play, and we can enjoy a session after a good meal! I play flute, and Simon plays folk guitar.

We are also members of the Black Hill Folk Players, and if you pick your day, you can join in with a larger group of folk aficionados, including flutes, fiddle, bodhran and harmonium, who like to play music from the Welsh, Irish and English traditions.

If popping down to the local for a pint to listen to live folk music is your scene, then head on down to the Crown Inn in Longtown, which is only a mile and a half from Little Trewern. Here, every third Tuesday in the month, you will find the Black Hill Folk singers doing their thing, (or rather, our thing, because we are members too!). We are joined impromptu on the night by musical friends and wandering minstrels. This is the real McCoy – an authentic night in a proper English pub!

So why not combine a short stay at Little Trewern B&B with walks in the Black Mountains, and night out listening to some live folk music!
