Come with us on a journey studded with audio illusions:
Americana that's not from America...
A strange hunting accident in which the victim's ghost appears as a witness for the defence...
Romans from Croatia in the Lake District...
Three songs with no words...
Blood in the kitchen, blood in the hall...
And we march from the Highlands in the company of Bonnie Prince Charlie to hear a song that's all about him, but not in favour of him...
All this and more in a mind-expanding edition of ... FolkCast!

The best in folk, folk-rock, singer-songwriter and roots music
from the UK and around the world
