We are a UK based virtual folk club encouraging and enabling authentic music, both ancient and modern. We produce radio shows (mainly music based) and podcasts (live music and interesting conversation). To date our target audience has been the folk music community and related groups, but we are evolving so watch this space.
The Invisible Folk Club radio show came about almost by accident when a new Community Radio launched in our part of the world. CRMK liked the sound of our podcasts and gave us the chance to transfer some of the atmosphere to the radio. We are very grateful to our new friends at CRMK! We soon found that Community Radio was a great place to be, especially when Sine FM from Doncaster and Radio St Austell Bay came calling.
With a year of broadcasting experience behind us we are now looking to diversify. The plan is to produce a new strand of shows tapping into the rich heritage of our green and pleasant land. Each show will be an even split of words and music celebrating the history, people, culture, industries, myths and legends associated with our favourite aspects of the UK.
If you like the sound of all this and want to get involved somehow, or simply want to tell us what you think of the Invisible Folk Club please leave a message via the Contact page. We’d love to hear from you.
