Folk Byways with Elrik Merlin

Today we present a pro­gramme of mod­ern folk music from the UK (well near­ly — there are a cou­ple of North Amer­i­can artists in there if truth be told).

We’ll be hear­ing mod­er­ate­ly recent releas­es, plus tracks from the last 20 years or so, with the occa­sion­al tra­di­tion­al num­ber thrown in along­side the likes of the Unthanks, Chum­bawam­ba, Four­told and oth­ers, many sug­gest­ed by my col­league on Design­ing Worlds, Saf­fia Wid­der­shins.

Some of today’s selec­tions are def­i­nite­ly on the rock side of folk, so be pre­pared for a fair­ly up-tem­po day.

Today’s pro­gramme is pre­sent­ed by Elrik Mer­lin and pro­duced by Radio Riel in con­junc­tion with our friends at the Alexan­dri­an Free Library Con­sor­tium of Sec­ond Life. You can lis­ten to the pro­gramme in-world now at http://main.radioriel.org, or sim­ply click here to start your play­er, if your brows­er is con­fig­ured to do so. Lis­ten­ers in the Unit­ed States are encour­aged to tune in using this link: http://loudcity.com/stations/radio-riel/tune_in
