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.

THIS EDITION: A whale of a show! We meet a British naval hero who wasn’t Lord Nelson; hear topical songs about tragedies averted; and play songs that put the “FUN” into funeral. We get Insanely Mental with an Underground Instrumental, and we find out what happens when you mix bluegrass with thrash metal to create a folkie Frankenstein’s monster! All that, and Stories Behind two Songs recorded just for us by the people who wrote them.

FolkCast is produced and presented by
'Folkie' Phil Widdows
