For folk's sake

In the fifth of the Sounding Bored interview podcasts, Rob chats to Graham Hobbs and Jonathan Roscoe, editors of Shire Folk, an Oxfordshire-based folk-focused magazine that covers more than that might imply, both geographically and musically. You don't have to be a dyed-in-the-wool folkie to enjoy it - not least because much of the conversation relates to the ins and outs (and the economics) of running a niche music publication in 2018. That such a magazine is still going strong after 40 years (thanks to Graham and Jonathan stepping into the breach when the last editor stood down) - and, moreover, is still appearing in print - should be celebrated.
