Welcome from matthew bannister
Welcome to Folk on Foot, the award winning podcast that brings together my three passions - folk music, walking and telling stories in sound. Many of the UK’s top folk artists have walked, talked, played and sung with us in spectacular locations ranging from mountain tops to remote white sand beaches and from a disused brick factory near Sheffield to a Sussex wood in the middle of the night. We have captured the sounds of the natural world: curlews circling overhead, waves crashing on the shore, rivers burbling under bridges, campfires crackling and above all feet tramping through all kinds of terrain. And the music takes on a new power when you hear it performed in the places that inspired it.
