Get Involved

FemFolk is run by a small team. In order to best support women, non-binary, trans, and intersex artists, we ask that you carefully read the below information to see if applying for FemFolk is right for you.

The FemFolk team is human, and therefore imperfect, so if you think we've made a mistake, or if we can improve the guidelines for potential submissions, send us a message. 

Genre:

Our platform exists to support artists who are creating in the folk stream of music, with a special emphasis on storytelling. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Traditional Folk

  • Contemporary Folk

  • Singer-Songwriters

  • Canadiana / Americana

  • Roots

  • Bluegrass

  • Acoustic Music

  • Folk Fusion (Folk-Rock, Folk-Pop, Folk-Jazz)

Because of Covid-19, our genre restrictions have been suspended. We are accepting and encouraging applications from artists from all musical genres.

Gender:

FemFolk is focussed on providing a platform and support for artists who may be subject to gender-based discrimination, or a lack of support in the UK music scene. This includes but is not limited to artists who identify as women, non-binary, trans or intersex.

For duos, or groups, we simply ask that your ensemble either:

  • be lead, fronted, or have the majority of the songwriting done by a woman, non-binary, trans, or intersex person.

  • consist of at least 50% women, non-binary, trans, or intersex individuals.

Please take the time to fill out the form relevant to the area nearest you.
