It's with great sadness that we have to announce the passing of the Folkus Chairman, Alan Bell.

Alan founded Folkus in 1999 to achieve his dream of teaching and bringing live music to the wider public.

Over the 20 years of his stewardship, so many people came with different musical abilities and went away having learned so much more.

Folkus will continue to champion what Alan started all those years ago, to keep music live and to build on his legacy.

David Jones Folkus Chairman
