Folk Music & Traditional Dance
The UK Folk Music website was established in 2011 to promote and support the fabulous folk music from our shores. Our intent has always been to spotlight some of the amazing home grown talent from the UK.
The UK Folk Music website has always supported and promoted Folk Clubs.
An essential part of the folk scene in the U.K, folk clubs and sessions continue to provide entertainment and give performers a vital opportunity to hone their skills in front of an audience.
In our Folk Club index, we have over two hundred folk clubs listed and we are always happy to add more when we find out about them.
Please support your local folk club and get in touch if you can suggest a folk club to be added to our Folk Club Index.
We have been producing folk music shows on the internet since 2012 but we have been considering curating a VIDEO SHOW for some time.
We still continue to receive new CDs and thought why not feature and promote the artists videos too. The selection above is our first attempt to produce the new show, please give it a listen, we know you’ll enjoy our selection.
We always believe that Morris Dancing in all its forms should be included with information about folk music. The two forms of traditional pastimes go hand in hand.
We have complied a huge guide to Morris Sides in the UK. You can locate Morris Dancers by the easy-to-use the A to Z Index. The easy to locate a selection of Morris Sides in your area.
We have over six hundred and twenty Morris Sides listed.
Our own folk music show presented by Alan Morley, brings you an exciting mix of brand new releases, old favourites plus up and coming artists.
We try to tie in the show with the music reviews on the website, and we welcome the submission of CD’s but also tracks via our Soundcloud group.
The show is updated every month and all shows are archived for listening at any time you like.
Another feature of the website which we are happy to have on offer, is our index of Folk Music Artists. This is something which we have brought across from a dedicated website which we used to run to promote folk music artists.
We decided to transfer all the details to our main website to allow more people to check out the information.
The index of folk music artists is being added to on more or less a daily basis, and we are happy to be contacted if you are a folk singer, musician or folk band who who like to be added. One of the latest additions to the Artists index is shown in the video below.
