August on FolkCast

Hi FolkCasters!

As you'll have noticed, we've been hard at work recently with the preview podcasts for Fairport's Cropredy Convention. I really hope you've been enjoying them, whether or not you're off to Cropredy this year. Hopefully, they've given a "peak behind the curtain" at how a major music festival is produced, as well as supplying some excellent and at times exclusive music from Fairport and their guests.

Babba, Jo and I (Phil) will be at Cropredy, of course, and we'll be podcasting 'live' every day from the festival field, the village and backstage, so do watch out for those special shows. We plan to capture the essence of the festival and squeeze it into your ears! If you are at Cropredy, keep an eye out for us and come and say hello.

Once Cropredy is over (and we've all got home and recovered from what promises to be a massively busy weekend!) work will begin in earnest on August show - edition 064 - and I've already got lots of excellent new music lined up for that from the Cecil Sharp Project, the Saw Doctors, Katriona Gilmore and Jamie Roberts and more.  So, it won't be until the week beginning August 22nd that 064 will hit the web.

After that, Jo and I are taking a break down in the West Country, so there will be no FolkCast in September – but we will be back with a bang in very early October!

If you're on Twitter or Facebook remember to follow or friend us there … but only if you want the very latest news from the worlds of folk, folk-rock, singer-songwriter and roots-based music.

Keep focused on FolkCast!
