The Autumn Crackler is here!

Greetings FolkCaster!

I hope this email finds you in fine folkie fettle. Here's the news: I've just released a fresh 80-ish minutes of music and readings to mark the changing of the seasons and the arrival of (meteorological) Autumn on September 1st (if you're in the Southern Hemisphere, please save this email for six months, and enjoy the Spring Special show instead!).

In this year's Autumn Crackler, through the cunning use of music and spoken word, we follow the harvest, collect wild mushrooms and visit the standing stones. We celebrate All Hallow’s Eve and Bonfire Night, and join Thanksgiving. And we warn against eating the wrong kind of berries... So come on, bring a basket and we’ll gather the season’s bounty ... and stick it in our ears!

Music by: Spiral Dance - Katriona Gilmore & Jamie Roberts - Eliza Carthy, Martin Carthy & Paul Weller - Dave Pegg & PJ Wright - Locomotive Ghost - Radim Zenkl - Mind Of Max - Scott McWatt - Michael Chapman - Magna Carta - Dave Webber & Anni Fentiman - Ninebarrow - Sharron Kraus & Friends - Show Of Hands - The Story - Christopher Cross - Giggetty - The Gathering Tide - Katy Rose Bennett - Kristina Olsen.

Readings from: "The Golden Bough" by Sir James Frazer - “Mushrooms” by Margaret Atwood - "All Hallow's Eve" by Erin Morgenstern - “The Origin And Customs Of Guy Fawkes' Day” from The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes: The Gunpowder Plot.

You can listen online or download the show from Autumn Crackler 2016 or, if you are a subscriber, check your podcatcher app of choice to ensure it has automatically grabbed the show from the ether. 

The Autumn Crackler will keep you topically entertained for the next three months, but here at FolkCast HQ our minds (such as they are) are already turning to the final edition of this year's four seasonal specials: The Winter Storm â€“ and we need YOUR HELP to make it happen!
We're looking for new songs and poetry about or set in the season of winter. So, if you're a musician or writer and want to be part of the FolkCast Winter Storm, get in touch via email, or see this page for details of how to send stuff to us.

Have a great Autumn, and Remember Remember – keep focused on FolkCast for the best from the Folkosphere! And keep an eye on the FolkCast Blog for the latest news about all kinds of folkie frolics.

Bye byeeeeeeee!

Folkie Phil
