Adding Your News Releases to Folk Roots List

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

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. Just log in and add your news as a new post. This the surest way to get it published on the website. Please note that all post are checked before going live and for security reasons, login is disabled every night between midnight and 6am.

Alternatively you can send your press releases and folk music news 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 yourself.

If you are unsure how to go about writing and using a press release, check out How to write a good press release.
