Hi Folkie Friend!
I wanted you to be among the first to know that this year's very special FolkCast Selection Box awaits your ears!
Click here to go to the show!
The Selection Box is our annual presentation of music for the festive period and, naturally, it's a mix of the more unusual, mostly folkie offerings (but we do bend our usual rules for this show ... well, it is Christmas!).
This year's show includes music by: Kludo White - Beta Radio - Milton Hide - Maxwell, Miranda, Parsley - Julia P - Daniel Nestlerode - Daria Kulesh - Rebecca Hosking - Davidson/MacFarlane - Skinner & T'witch - The Citizen (aka Ken O’Duffy) - Jimmy Lee Morris - Canny Fettle - GreenMatthews - Neil Thomson and Gerry Cambridge - Rich Krueger - Sleeping At Last - Robert Land and Emily Ewing - Nick Wyke & Becki Driscoll - The Stoned Cherries - Devils Water - KIVA - Andrews Massey Duo.
There are also clips from some festive films ... some well known, others rather more obscure!
One FolkCaster recently wrote to tell me that "Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without the Selection Box!" and it certainly has become a treasured tradition; one going back to our first year of production, 2006. All our previous Boxes are available to download from the archive, too. There's a handy link to them from the ShowNotes page to the latest show.
And the specials don't stop there ... prepare for The Last Hurrah 2017! That's our ever-growing mix of music for a folk-rocking New Year. It'll be with you on December 29th.
And don't worry, we'll get back to blessed normality very soon! Our regular shows bringing you the best in folk, folk-rock, singer-songwriter and roots will return on the first and third Saturdays of every month, beginning with FolkCast 142 on 6th January 2018 as we enter our 12th year of podcasting, making us the original and longest serving independent folk podcast from the UK.
All the very best for Christmas, and Fare Thee Well...
