About Folk and Tumble

Folk and Tumble is run by a team of voluntary writers, photographers, videographers and people who just love the music we cover. Whether you're into classic country, new Americana, traditional tunes or even folk-punk, we hope you find something you like as much as we do.

We’re Folk and Tumble

Folk and Tumble is a site that’s all about folk music. Sure that’s a broad genre but we’re got the people and the chops to cover it. From edgy folk-punk like Frank Turner and Billy Bragg through traditional folk, to Americana, blues, country and even western to the more contemporary folk sounds of artists such as Laura Marling, Father John Misty, Villagers and Sufjan Stevens.

We were established in Belfast in 2010 after a chance meeting between the co-founders in a pub after a show run by Open House Festival. Still predominantly based in the Belfast area, we cover a lot of great music from Northern Ireland but we’re keen to showcase the best the rest of the world has to offer. You’ll regularly find articles on here about Irish, British, American, Canadian and Australian artists amongst other nationalities.

We write on a broad range of topics from album reviews to interviews, bring you brand new music and keep you up to date with all the latest news in the folk music world.

Folk and Tumble works with some of the best people around and have developed great working relationships with the likes of Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival, The Real Music Club, Open House Festival, EastSide Arts Blissfields and Victorious Festival as well as promoters such as Shine, all of whom put on stellar shows all year long.

We’re always keen to discover new talent, both in terms of music but also in our editorial team. If you think you’ve got what it takes, get in touch.

It’s our pleasure to have you drop by for a visit.
