WHAT WE DO ONLINE ................................................. LIMITATIONS OF THIS WEBSITE ...


What we do is produce and distribute a PRINTED folk magazine;

anything online is a bonus.


Online is intended for desktop computers and larger screens


We are a non-profit group of volunteers/amateurs who produce a print magazine.

I paste copies of most print pages online, so that you can read some.

Do dip in to an online page, - or 2 - 3 .... whilst most of our 48 A4 pages are online, to read it all, a printed copy is far easier!


Critical suggestions for improving these webpages are positively welcome

What we do is produce and distribute a PRINTED folk magazine,

in which you can advertise, and/or you can join us as a Member and then send in your Members' news & listings.

Members can publicise their recordings and reviews. No reviews except from Members, plus (very occasionally) the editors review books.


So … what we do is produce and distribute a PRINTED folk magazine! ............................ cheers, Sam.
