FolkCast - Getting your music to us

We'd love to hear your music, and if you would like to be featured on FolkCast there are several ways of getting your music to us.



1: POST
Got a CD? Stick it in an envelope with details about you/your band and the music.
Our postal address is:
FolkCast
16 Hareden Road
Preston
PR2 6LD
United Kingdom.




2
: EMAIL
Our email address can be found here.
Got an MP3? Make sure it is encoded to at least 192kbps and send it to us, along with details about you/your band and the music.
 If you just send blank email with an attachment this will look like spam and we'll just junk it, so please say hello!

3: DOWNLOAD or SHARING
More and more people are posting high-bitrate songs to sites such as ReverbNation, Bandcamp or Soundcloud. This works very well.
Of course, you'll have to email us with a link to your page on these sites - and while you're doing that send us info about you/your band!
REMEMBER to activate the "make file downloadable" option so we can actually get your music to play in the show!
      

ReverbNation        Bandcamp        Soundcloud

Another alternative is Dropbox, a very useful resource which allows files to be synced between computers. We use it a lot.
If you do not have Dropbox, click the logo below and sign up. When you have Dropbox installed, simply create a folder and then share it with us.

4: A FEW "Do"s & "Don't"s


5: INFORMATION TO SEND TO US

We like easy. It makes us happy. To make things easy, please tell us:

  • Your name or your band's name, and names and instruments of the band members. Don't do this last bit if you are an orchestra!

  • Where you are from (eg: town/city/county/state/country).

  • What the song/s are called.

  • Whether they are original or traditional. If original, who wrote them? If traditional, where did you learn them?

  • What date the music is being released on.

  • The address (URL) of your website. If you don't have a website, a Facebook, Soundcloud, Bandcamp or Reverbnation page will do.

  • The name of the winner of next year's Grand National.

  • Any other information you think we might find interesting or amusing.

Thanks!
