Folk Roots List
Now in our 21st year, Folk Roots List has been online since 1999, offering free help to folk musicians and folk event organisers. The website has four distinct areas or folk zones. Folk News, Folk Gigs, The Learning Zone and the embryonic directory of folk music artists, roots musicians, agents and venues.
This is your website where you can publish your folk news and folk gigs. Publicise folk festivals, tours, albums and video releases. In fact, it's the place for anything folk, roots, acoustic or Americana.
The Folk Roots List learning zone is for musicians and event organisers. There are articles on everything from the voice and microphones to writing a press release or running a festival.
What is Folk Music?
For the purposes of this website the term folk music is used in a relaxed way and the term encompasses world music, Americana, acoustic, singer/songwriters, roots and the many acoustic and folk music crossover styles that have developed.
