SECURING THE FUTURE OF FOLK ON FOOT
A message from Matthew Bannister:
Since the beginning, the response to Folk On Foot has been overwhelming. After just over a year, and three seasons of the podcast, our episodes have been downloaded over 100,000 times. We’ve been supported by a growing community of listeners on social media, united by a love of folk music and the great outdoors.
Season 4 is on the way and we’d love to keep walking into the future, but to do that we need your help. We never want to make a profit, but running this podcast isn’t cheap: we need to pay our talented producers and film makers, cover our travelling expenses, offer small payments to the artists, and meet the costs of distribution and marketing. We think the best way to pay for all this is to ask as many of our listeners as possible to give us a small amount. It’s an amazing fact that if everyone who downloaded an episode of Folk on Foot gave us just $1 a month, we could break even.
If you're feeling really generous you could become a Folk on Foot Legend. If you make a one-off donation of £250 or more, you’ll get all the rewards of being a Folk on Foot Hero, plus I will take you for a walk either near my home in West Sussex or in Central London, ending up with lunch at one of my favourite watering holes.
We love making Folk on Foot, and we hope you love listening to it. If you do, please make a small donation to help us secure its future.
WHY IS EVERYTHING IN DOLLARS?
The payments are in dollars because we’ve teamed up with an American website called “Patreon” which helps creative people to manage their subscribers. We can’t find a British site with the same functionality. After the deduction of a small fee for Patreon and Paypal, the money is converted into pounds and we spend every penny on making more episodes.
Some listeners have told us they’d prefer to make one-off donations and they’d rather pay in pounds. You can do that here:
