Folk Talk gives personal insights into the working practices of artists and industry across the folk, roots and acoustic music world.  

It’s a peek behind the scenes with some of the biggest names of our music sector as well as a sharing of tips, advice, practice and thinking for the benefit of all.

Folk Talk Together is an informal network for different parts of the sector who meet regularly to share ideas, best practice and support. We currently have groups for Artists, Booking Agents, Programmers and more. FIND OUT MORE HERE.
