About Folk Ale

“Ale” is a term used in past times by Kentish folk to describe a community celebration and that’s what Folk Ale is – a chance for musicians and fans of acoustic music to get together, sing, play, and listen to great music against a backdrop of beautiful Kent countryside.

The Pig’s Ear Folk Ale was founded in 2003 by family folk group Pig’s Ear – Grant, Keith, Sue and Lyndsey Rule – and for many years was run by the Rule family with a number of other loyal volunteers. It has taken place every year on the weekend following the late Spring Bank Holiday, except for 2020 when it was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Pig’s Ear Folk Ale is now run as a membership organisation. Please go to the Members page for information on how you can get involved.
