FolkCast Theme Music: Fisherman's Priest by Ken Nicol

- - -

FolkCast: the podcast that brings you the worlds of
folk, folk-rock, singer-songwriter and roots music.

A ton of great new sounds from the Folkosphere to share with you, plus there’s NUDITY!... with a steampunk morris dancer; there’s SEX!... with a cuckoo, and there’s DOUGHNUTS!... in an Insanely Mental Instrumental that will drive Homer Simpson crazy! Plus there is a trio of new songs inspired by classics.

FolkCast is produced and presented by
Folkie Phil Widdows
