Folking.com was established in 1999 and has become one of the UK’s foremost online folk music resources. The Folking team is a small, dedicated group of people with a passion for music and a commitment to furthering the interests of the folk, acoustic music and Americana music movement; with a growing team of writers & interviewers, reviewing the latest releases from the world of folk, each with their own inimitable style…
We all give our spare time to bring you this web resource and are always looking for new people who share a similar passion to get involved in the site. Our aim is to educate, inform and simply entertain you with all the latest album and tour press releases from the folk, acoustic and Americana music scene. We will also feature new and archived artist interviews, album, gig and festival reviews as well as photos, videos, mp3 interviews and SOUNDCLOUD music media.
Use the menus at the top to navigate to the different sections of the site. Tablet users will find these menus in a drop down section which is to the right of the square orange search button.

Also feel free to use it as a place to share or start a discussion about any latest folk, acoustic or roots related news item that you care about. Let’s get the folking community talking!
