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, .
