FolkCast120-July 2016

FolkCast: the podcast that brings you the worlds of folk, folk-rock, singer-songwriter and roots music.

Out of the tangled mess of politics and world events we present an entertaining mix of music and chat. There's a focus on 'folk concept albums' and 'folk-influenced projects'. We hear from Ken Nicol about his new 'super group'. We dance with the Devil. And we meet 'the King of the 'Draulicers' in his mansion on the crag.

FolkCast is produced and presented by 'Folkie' Phil Widdows
