Welcome to The Folk Roots List

This is your website where you can publish your news and gigs. Publicise festivals, tours, albums and video releases. In fact, it's the place for anything folk, roots, acoustic or Americana. See the ABOUT page for more info.

Add Your Gigs to FRL

Add your folk, roots, acoustic and world music gigs, concerts, tours, folk club and folk festival dates directly to the What's On diary and gig guide.

NB This is a free service to help you publicise your events & gigs but due to the increasing number of junk posts and website attacks, you now need to be logged in before you can post an event.

Just click the green "+Post Your Event" button (only visible when logged in) found at the top of the listings on the Events & Gigs page. It takes a few seconds for the link to work. Then add your gig details and click the Submit button. If you have 'trusted' status your gig is published immediately otherwise it will take a few hours.

Click to Add Gigs and events.
NB You must be looged in.


Add Your News To FRL

We love to hear your latest news. You can either add news directly to the website or send in your press/news releases for inclusion in the news section.

Releases and photos, relating to tours, albums, folk festivals and other news can be directly added to the news section, along with audio and video.

You must be logged in then just Click to Add News or an Article.

Alternatively you can send your releases to the Newsdesk but be aware that the high volume of email sent means your news release is less likely to be used than if you add it directly to the website youself.
