Resources

All you need at your fingertips

Event organisers, musicians and performers, or anyone who wants some useful lowdown on the folk circuit in the CV postcode area – we hope this part of the CVFolk website offers something of practical use.

We’ll add links as and when something crops up that might be of value to support your existence as a folk aficionado . Contributions and/or suggestions for potentially valuable resources are welcome – email your ideas and we’ll follow them up..

For starters, here’s an article by Pete Willow (former university lecturer in Journalism and PR), originally published by Folk21 and offering advice to folk event organisers on how to get some decent media coverage. This was based on a presentation to club organisers in the West Midlands, back in 2017 and proved to be a popular resource. Technology may have moved on, but the basic principles are the same if you want the local press and broadcast media to take notice of what’s happening at your venue.
