Artree Live

Artree Live (previously Folking Live) is the monthly roots music event taking place once a month on a Saturday in the intimate setting of The Cellar Bar, part of South Hill Park Arts Centre in Bracknell, Berkshire. Each night of music will offer the best in English Folk, Country, Bluegrass, Americana and World Music from performers both local and further afield.

The night will consist of a number of 25 minute slots, followed by a featured artist who will play out the evening with an extended set.

This is an open and friendly evening which is more than anything, really good fun. We don’t have any prejudices towards style or age – if you’re good enough and play within the ‘roots’ genre, you’re welcome here. If you are an artist who wishes to play, whatever part of the genre you fall under, we’d love to hear from you.

Please contact us by email if you would like to be considered for a slot. All details about the night and what we are looking for can be found below.


How to play at an Artree Live Event

If you wish to play at a Artree event, please contact us via email , linking to some of your music plus a bit about yourself.

This event is designed to promote roots music in both the local area and further afield. The genres of artists we are looking for are:

English Folk/Trad/Folk/Celtic/Blues/Bluegrass/Ragtime/Country/Hillbilly/Americana/World Music

Please do get in touch if you think you fit the bill. The selection will be down to preference however we will consider every act that approaches us. Some acts may be chosen due to their proximity with the venue, but we do strive to give acts from further afield a chance to play also.

We are however only a monthly event currently, and so please excuse us if there isn’t a slot available for a few months from your date of submission. We have many enquiries and only 3/4 slots at each show – so as you can probably imagine, these get filled quite a way in advance.




There is very little money behind this project, and it isn’t a profit making exercise. This event, like all the other events we host are put on in the main to keep live folk, roots and acoustic music available to as big an audience as possible. We have decided that we will offer a token amount in expenses to the headline act at each event. This will be the act hand picked by us to top the bill at an event, and who’s set will be approximately 15 minutes longer than the other artists on the bill. This will not be a substantial amount, and will likely cover the travel costs of the headline artist (dependant on distance). The amount will be discussed with the artist while the booking negotiation is taking place and will be at the promoters discretion.

If for any reason an artist is not happy with the amount offered, and would still like to perform at South Hill Park – it is advised they still contact us as we may be able to discuss the possibility of a guest night slot, where all contract negotiations are dealt with by the arts centre direct.




If there are any question you would like answered about Artree’s booking – or indeed anything about the show, please use the mail address stated above or contact us through our Facebook page.

We look forward to hearing from you.
