Harpenden Public Halls is the place to be for music lovers on October 27 for the latest Folkstock benefit concert, where audiences can find BBC Radio 2 Folk Award nominees rubbing shoulders with a host of emerging acts, with real ale and cider to wash it all down

Maz O’Connor, Luke Jackson (both Emerging Act’ Horizon Award nominees), Jess Morgan, Said the Maiden and Kelly Oliver (Stevenage singer-songwriter recently in session with Bob Harris) are great new talents on the bill at the Folktoberfest event, which builds on the success the last Folkstock in May which featured Said the Maiden and Kelly Oliver supporting Dave Swarbrick on the last date of his recent tour.

The concerts are organised by the Herts-based Folkstock Arts Foundation (, run by Helen Meissner, who also organises the annual FolkStock Festival and runs a record label in support the next generation of local musicians from traditional folk-inspired acts to singer-songwriters.
