Will Lang is a modern British Folk musician, composer and producer. One of the most versatile musicians on the British Folk scene today over the last few years, Will has not stopped. He is well known for his collaborations, bringing a folk influence to many prolific performers including Mercury Music Award-winning Nitin Sawhney, The National Youth Choir of Great Britain, Tabla player Aref Durvesh and Northern Spirit Singers in the BBCs Choir of the year. His most recent diversion has been joining world-renowned percussion sensation Spark! Since 2014 Will has performed in many countries with appearances including ITV’s Paul O’Grady show; Singapore’s 5 Show; The Venetian in Macau, the world’s largest Casino; and at the Bahrain F1…. to name a few.

Will has recorded studio albums in Australia and Ireland and three British prisons. Along with his choral works Will has gained mainstream BBC Radio 3, Radio 6Music and Radio 2 airplay with his album track 'Moving on Song' featuring HMP the Verne Chorus for the album PBS6.
Alongside Spark’s intense touring schedule Will is in high demand as a music educator. A former core tutor of Newcastle University’s Folk and Traditional Music degree in 2010 Will founded Hothouse at Halsway Manor which has become one of the UK’s largest education programmes for young folk musicians, including two week-long residential courses and the Hothouse festival, a one-day one-night celebration of the best of young folk and roots music.

In 2012 Will was made a musical associate of the National Youth Choir of Great Britain and commissioned to write a series of folk inspired choral pieces to be performed in the four corners of the country from 2012-2015 starting at The Sage Gateshead '12 and Rochester Cathedral, '13. Most recently, Will's choral and orchestral work 'Canny at Neet, Bonny at Morn', focusing on North East life was premiered in Durham Cathedral, alongside Will Todd's Gala and Gloria, with great reviews. It is his work in Folk and wider-reaching genres that enables Will to inspire musicians to discover Folk music and encourage them to explore the roots of their traditional music.
