'Folk Findings', our new radio show on Blues and Roots Radio

Folk Findings is a new monthly radio show presented by Ange Hardy, Rob Swan and Lukas Drinkwater. Linking traditional, self-penned, well known and unknown folk songs together by pulling on the threads and seeing how they are connected.

  “It’s easy to go a bit mad when you’re stuck in a van with two other people for hours on end. We found that playing one song in the van very often led to playing another, and that sometimes the threads that linked the songs together were verging on the utterly ludicrous. So… well, that seemed like a good premise for a radio show!” - Ange

With an all-consuming but distinctly varied taste in music the three presenters aim to provide an hour-and-a-half of eclectic and entertaining light-hearted entertainment.

  “Basically, we just wanted an excuse to play our favourite songs on the radio” - Rob

Radio shows have had a tremendous influence on the personal and professional lives of all three of the show’s hosts, and it’s through a desire to keep the spirit of independent radio alive that they’ve embarked on this new adventure.

There’s no telling what the musical variety will be like, because no one really knows where the threads are going to lead. It’ll start with folk. It might stay with folk. But for all we know, if he can find a way to link it in Lukas might just break the format and start playing Lithuanian Technical Death Metal…
