Welcome to Folk Phenomena

Folk Phenomena is a website dedicated to all things folk; be it folk music, festivals, theatre, storytelling or lore.

My aim is to listen to, feel and explore this (and other genres) for it's sensory impact. 

I accept submissions (electronic or physical) and will also give time to unsigned and people on the start of their musical journey too. 

I also specialise in Social Media publicity at festivals using Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and recently live streaming to let the world know what you are doing. Please contact for more information.

Other than that, enjoy yourself, and any questions/feedback, just let me know!
