The site was established in 1999 and has become one of the UK’s much loved on-line 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 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…


Now available on pre-order, Peter Knight's Gigspanner Big Band's debut album. This is the collaborative lineup with Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin.

The album will be released on August 9th during Cropredy week, at a series of concerts planned around their performance at Fairport's 50th celebration festival.

The week culminates with a celebration of Peter's 70th Birthday year at The Roses Theatre, Tewkesbury, with a lineup that also includes John Spiers.

Hannah writes "When I was nine or ten years old, my mum took me to see Steeleye Span at Sidmouth Folk Week.

I remember it so clearly - I was absolutely mesmerized by Peter's violin and Maddy's voice. It was a hugely formative experience for me; I got my first book of folk tunes, sat on Sidmouth beach, and started learning to play them. I simply could not have imagined then that I'd be writing this email now - to announce the album we have made with Peter Knight and his wonderful band! Listening to the final mixes felt amazing; and emotional - I wanted to jump around and tell my nine year old self to keep practicing"!
