The Folk Radio UK Folk Show – Ep. 6 | Folk Radio UK

This week’s Folk Show is probably the most eclectic we’ve run in this new series so far with music from across the British Isles and beyond. Included are tracks from our two most recent Featured Albums of the Month: Stu Larsen’s Resolute and Shelby Lynne & Allison Moorer’s Not Dark Yet. They are rubbing shoulders with English Traditional & Contemporary folk music, Old-time and Bluegrass as well Scottish and Irish traditional (with a contemporary take) music and more. All except one, is either a new or forthcoming release [ . . . ]
