Description: Don't Give a Folk offers audiences a weekly historical and educative perspective on folk music. This ranges from playing old-time traditional folk music, including fiddle music from across the world, all the way to modern releases from singer/songwriters who draw heavily on folk traditions and convention to innovate and push the genre forward.

Folk music is deeply rooted in human experience and connection and has influences in all of modern music, being music based around simple chord progressions and familiar melodies. For years, folk music was centered on a direct passing down of aural tradition, carrying ancient songs through generation after generation, greatly influencing the music we hear today. Don't Give a Folks hopes to convince audiences that modern music owes its sound to folk music and learning the history of the genre can help open up endless paths to discovering new and exciting sounds.
