It’s been a while since I’ve featured a mix so I decided to push this one out there today which has been building in my head over the past week. It features some of the best new folk music out there today and the majority of the tracks are very new releases. Alongside some well know artists are also some relative newcomers such as October Gold, Harry Bird and the Rubber Wellies and Matt Creer.
Beneath the player is a tracklist, for those of you that fancy delving a bit deeper all the tracks (except one) link to a related article for that artist including premieres, interviews, news and reviews.
I hope you have as much fun listening to it as I did putting it together. Another will follow soon.
