Music Podcasts

Invisible Folk Club core podcasts create an ambience somewhere between a folk club and a workshop. We want to entertain and educate through music and conversation. Egos are parked outside, everybody is treated the same. We do not record in a 'proper' studio, we simply set up the Zoom recorder in a terraced cottage in the heart of England and off we go. It is literally a cottage industry! We create a convivial atmosphere in which the musicians soon forget about the microphones. Then the spirit, talent, skill and enjoyment can shine through.
