Folk On The Fringe - the show where ‘Music is a passion not a product’ brings you music from the Folk genre and it’s fringes including Singer/songwriter, Canadian, Celtic, Americana, Anglo-Trad, Folk/Country and all points in between and either side. Presented by Phil Young, it focuses mainly on International artists.

New music is featured most weeks along with previously available material, occasional live performances by guests, phone and recorded interviews. The show is pre-recorded and as such phone-in requests are not catered for.
