FolkCast Theme Music: Fisherman's Priest by Ken Nicol

- - -

FolkCast: the podcast that brings you the worlds of
folk, folk-rock, singer-songwriter and roots music.

In this edition of FolkCast we sing a couple of songs of the merry, merry month of May, we go to Gracelands, we wonder where the time has gone, we visit the court house to hear our brother speak, before not visiting Denver. Then we get wild in the country. It could be England, it could Ireland, it could be Wales ... or it could be Transylvania!

We go on a bug hunt with a flying Yeti and hear an Insanely Mental Instrumental with a mammoth title. There’s a song by a Victorian postman, and there’s a song about a Victorian miner. And then we break it all down and pack it all away with the final journey of a 1969 split screen camper van.

That’s our bill of fare: we’ve got folk, folk-rock, singer-songwriter, roots  … and hardly any country music!
