shows // Traditional Folkus
Folk music is for old people isn't it?
The show aims to bring you the best New/Indie Folk, Traditional Music, Country Rock and much more, from Scotland, England and across the Atlantic!
So from the likes of Mumford and Sons to Treacherous Orchestra to Drive By Truckers, you'll find that Folk isn't boring at all!
Welcome to our Americana Special!
We have tracks from many great American Folk icons like Merle Travis, Leadbelly and many more!
Our Album of the week is the great Bob Dylan by Bob Dylan, and the Track of the Week comes from the lovely Lori Watson

it's christmas (almost)!
It’s that time of year again! Exams are over (for most), the snow's falling (well its sleet, but let’s not be picky here) and the air is full with the sounds of the usual, tacky Christmas tunes! So as an antidote to all this I'll be bringing you a selection of some more unusual Christmas tunes to enjoy, tomorrow at 5pm!
