Folk on Foot is proud to present the Official Folk Albums Chart Show.


Presented by Matthew Bannister, it premieres at 7pm on the first Monday of every calendar month – right here, or on our YouTube channel and podcast feed.


As well as a countdown of the forty best-selling and most-streamed folk albums, we focus on the new entries – the artists breaking into the chart for the first time – playing their tracks/videos and sometimes interviewing them and even getting them to play live. The aim is to connect you with the brilliant folk music that’s making waves across the country right now.

Watch the top 10 rundown (October 2020)

For artists / labels
