The Folk Monthly Magazine

People at concertFolk Monthly Magazine


Folk Monthly is a glossy A5 magazine of 50-60 pages published throughout the year, with a combined issue for August and September.We distribute 700 plus copies across the whole of the Midlands and hope, as the new publishers of Folk Monthly, to be further increasing the circulation over time.  The magazine features articles, news and reviews for Folk related events such as Folk Music, Storytelling and Dance.

It contains a listings diary which gives you the information for these events close to home and across the Midlands – this is also updated monthly as online listings. With this diary, subscribers can  ensure that they don’t miss their favourite performers and events. In addition there is information about a number of clubs and up and coming festivals and sessions.  So not only is it a great way of finding out what is going on but it’s also a huge source of information for artist, promoters and club organisers.

Our selection of reviews, news and articles is also an ideal forum when it comes to staying in the know and learning more about this area of the arts and what is on offer.  Folk Monthly is a great tool for  broadening your knowledge when it comes to art, culture and traditional heritage!

The magazine costs £1 and is sold at various folk clubs and music shops in the region.  Or, for only £20 per annum, you can take out a subscription and have it delivered through your letter box each month.  To download a subscription form, please click here.

We invite you to send your news, reviews and articles about music, song, dance and storytelling activities in the Midlands.  We positively welcome contributors. We particularly love to hear about new and upcoming performers and activities that involve young people. Email the editor with any comments or ideas
