ABOUT US

A unique all-female Folky ensemble, offering Folk, Pop, Rock & Country from the different eras in unique acoustic arrangements.

Folk With Us, a 2-6pc band established in 2016, consists of internationally acclaimed musicians and a strong female bond. Each coming from a different musical background such jazz, world music, funk and even heavy metal, gives the band their unique musical edge.

The band is lead by Lilac Sheer - An established performer and multi-instrumentalist (vocals, guitar, harmonica, banjo, percussion) who's toured the UK, Europe, US and the Middle East leaving fans spellbound by her powerful voice and strong conviction.

Lilac and her band recorded several folk albums, which can be found on Lilac Sheer's site store. The band recently performed at the renown Trinity Theatre in Tunbridge to a full singing-along house and an excited standing ovation.

Our quotes include a quality PA system & lighting, playlist DJ sets, and a dedicated engineer who keeps making sure everything sounds just right throughout the show, so the band can concentrate solely on giving your guests an unforgettable experience.

Booked Folk With Us for a Birthday Party
5.0  

I invited the girls to perform at my 60th birthday 60s-70s flower power celebration and they have exceeded all our expectations. We hoped for a class act to fit the black-tie event at the Windsor Guildhall, to play some Beatles, Dylan, Simon & Garfunkel, Joni Mitchell and other favourites from my younger years. What we' received was nothing short than an Albert Hall worthy concert, which I have not a bad word to say about. True class act both professionally and personally and I would love to invite them over again for some future celebrations before they get too busy to be booked.

Remko did the sound for Folk With Us' 60s tribute gig at our big and acoustically challenging church in Brighton in May 2017 - and it was fab. Not too much equipment - so easy on our historic building plus a quick load-out. Flexible too, so Remko could move around the building and tweak the sound to work with our arches and aisles. It was a really happy gig - no grief at all. Which is not always the case! Thank you and do let us know when you fancy another jaunt to Brighton. :-)
