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

On this edition of FolkCast we’ve got a hold full of songs about the sea! There are songs about racing on the sea, fishing on the sea and coming home from the sea. We’ve mariners, pirates, whalers and lost sailers. We’ve got boats and tides and ships and sails. That’s right, FolkCasters … it’s a naughty nautical special!

FolkCast is produced and presented by Folkie Phil Widdows
