Folk Directions Favoriting : Playlist from October 20, 2022

Hosted by:



Folk Directions presents traditional and contemporary music arising from many kinds of folk-oriented traditions; music—unbounded by time or space that includes, but is not limited to, ballads, Piedmont country blues, bluegrass, old-time, Celtic, Cajun, and more.

While a majority of the music comes from North American folk, the program’s music comes from all around the world; all songs remain the music of the people, however, thus staying true to the essence of folk. On the air since 2007.
