‘Keeping a beady eye on the traditional folk music scene of the British Isles.’ Founded 2008: Artists; Interviews; Record Reviews: ‘The music has to be rooted in the traditional music of the British Isles. So, some indication of "trad/arr" in the credits is a big plus. Singer-songwriter material is unlikely to get reviewed unless it also fulfils that requirement. Americana & Country also fall outside our remit. Despite our name, we do not discriminate based on the age of the artist.’
