Something’s stirring in the village of Little Dribblepatch…it’s Derek Tinkleberry, Donald Cornfoot and Edmund Sidebottam, otherwise known as Folk On – the finest comedy folk band since The Hay Bale Boys (and who remembers them?) The story of Folk On is one of overcoming adversity, unity in diversity, and life in a very small village in the west country.

What are their songs about?
Folk On write and play songs of unity and joining together, of solving conflicts and unyielding happiness…with the occasional song about a dead horse, pants or morris dancers.
What do Folk On sound like?
Have you ever wondered what it might be like if Mumford & Sons and Flight of the Conchords had a love-child? Well, Folk On might well be that illegitimate child of comedy-folk-love. Folk On’s sound is honest and pure, with tight rural harmonies and delicate mix of many different acoustic instruments. Sometimes raucous, sometimes reflective, the music of Folk On always brings a smile to the face and a tear to the eye of the listener.
