A not-for-profit organisation dedicated to providing grass roots creatives with a platform to make new work in partnership with heritage and arts organisations. We aim to give voice to marginalised communities and point out the role of folk song in the lives of ordinary people. Jon Bickley and Steve Yarwood have been working together as Invisible Folk since 2016 making podcasts, radio shows, films, music, festivals and plays calling on a wide range of talent working with museums, councils and major funding bodies.
