Folk Radio UK is a UK based leading independent online Music Magazine and Radio Station that combines non-stop music with original shows unlike any other radio station. Together with top quality articles and features we bring the best allround musical / media experience.
Established in 2004 the site has continued to grow in popularity garnering a reputation for great quality articles and a radio playlist that has been recommended by the likes of The Guardian Newspaper. We are constantly on the look-out for new artists and are widely recognised for introducing new music and for making radio that is fresh, original and boundary pushing…how it should be.
We have a great team of reviewers based around the UK and abroad who are passionate about the music we play and feature.
note: Although we try to review as many albums as we can we are not able to review every submission we receive. Also, we do not charge for our reviews or introductions.
Folk Radio UK is funded by voluntary donations and monies raised from website based adverts.

Some Press Quotes
IMHO Folk Radio UK is the dogs furry bollix……there’s so much stuff on the site that is brilliant and the seamless flow of music keeps me listening.
Mike Harding of BBC Radio 2
back-to-back music of the most gentle, serene sort, and a marvellous companion for a few hours
The Guardian radio & TV critic Elisabeth Mahoney
…the perfect antidote for the constant surge of electronic pulses of today’s modern sounds. Tune in and immerse yourself in the strumming of guitar strings for once. This excellent station provides the purest and prettiest pieces that modern folk music has to offer.
Keep up the good work guys! Thanks to you my working day doesn’t feel so much like work these days. Leo Clarke
I listen to radio the way I did as a kid again. With enthusiasm… You do indeed rock… Duncan O’ Cleirigh
why is there nothing like you on this side of the Atlantic? you’re the highland park to our johnny walker. Nels Andrews (American folk singer)
If you are an artist and want to be considered for airplay, record a session or be considered for review then please contact us at:
For album submissions please make sure you include website details of where we can hear your tunes but please don’t send any mp3 files. A biography or some background is also helpful. We try to listen to all artists and if we think your music is suitable we’ll get back in touch. Due to high volumes we cannot respond to everyone who makes a submission…we’re not being rude…we just don’t have enough hours in the day.
