The November 2009 edition of FolkCast is now available for your listening pleasure.
What's special about this month's show? Well ... nothing. There's no gimmicks, no themes, just great music and features. Music from: The Sea Kings - Linda Cricklair - Broken Dove - Jimmy Wahlsteen - Billy Mitchell and Bob Fox - Juan Medrano Cotito - Peter Bradley Adams - Stone Folke - Roy Jay - Hollyann and The Katie Winter. There's the tale of The Silver Whistle from folk poet Dave Alton, and Babba stands and delivers the truth about Turpin Hero in The Story Behind The Song.
Also, next month there will be two FolkCast's - our end-of-year retrospective, with more great music from some of the top artists we've featured in 2009; and the Seasonal Selection Box, a festive, hand-picked hamper of Christmas songs of all kinds, all moods and from all genres of music.
If you have written and recorded a Christmas song that you would like to see included in the Seasonal Selection Box, there's still time. Get in touch via the email button at www.folkcast.co.uk, before the end of November, and send your music out around the world to thousands of listeners this Christmas!
