this news via our Facebook or Twitter feeds and have been in touch with
Get Well messages. Thank you for all of them - they mean a great deal
and have been a strong support at this difficult time.
If you would like to contact Phil, please do so via email,
or through social media.
ARTISTS AND PRs: As no show is
likely to be produced for several months, please be advised that
submissions of music are therefore equally unlikely to receive an
airing on FolkCast. Thank you for your understanding.
