The Folkestra

The Folkestra

Oldtown

A 6 piece Folk-Punk band from Lancashire who fuse acoustic folk, punk and rock. Influences range from The Levellers, Billy Bragg, Joe Strummer and Colin Hay to 90’s skate punk bands such as NOFX, Blink 182 and The Offspring.

The Folkestra were formed and met through the local band scene and were all playing in a variety of different bands. Some members just so happened to have an obscure instrument such as a mandolin or banjo and were drafted into the band.
