The Folk Year 2015

2015 was by far the most active this blog has been in covering the UK folk music scene. While country and Americana will remain the core content, more extensive recognition and appreciation has been given to the wider roots scene, especially closer to home. Of course there are far more exclusive sources of comment and review for this type of music available, but well over twenty album and gig reviews were posted this year. Here is a flavour of the artists, in no particular order, who were featured, supported and ultimately enjoyed over the last twelve months:
