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.

Anna Tam at the Invisible Folk Club

7/13/2021
Anna Tam has a very personal take on traditional British songs. 'Anchoress' is an excellent debut album, Anna's strong soprano voice is self-accompanied by a variety of lesser-known stringed instruments such as nyckelharpa, viola da gamba and hurdy gurdy. Sparse yet atmospheric arrangements enhance the songs; while ensuring the stories and the people who lived them are to the fore. During lockdown in March 2020 she launched ‘Folk from the Boat’ on her YouTube Channel. She has brought weekly...
