Folk Roots List

Welcome to the Folk Roots List

Folk Roots List is an offshoot of EntsWeb. It is a place where all the folk music and dance, roots, acoustic, Americana and world music information and news is pulled together.

This page gives you an idea of what you will find here on the Folk Roots List website. It also shows how to get your news published and how you can add your gigs, tours and festival dates to the events diary.


Go To

Add Your Events Dates & Gigs

You can add your folk, roots, acoustic and world music gigs, concerts, tour and folk festival dates directly into the What's On diary.

This is a free service to help you publicise your events & gigs. Just click the green "+Post Your Event" button found at the top of the listings on the Events & Gigs page. Then fill out and submit the form. This is the simplest way to add a single event and does not require you to log in.

Alternatively, if you have a tour or multiple events to add, you can login and use the dashboard setting which allow you to reuse photos and store venue details for re-use. Please note, for security reasons, login is disabled every night between midnight and 6 am.
