Welcome to Folk Directions, a program of traditional and contemporary music arising from many kinds of folk-oriented traditions; music—unbounded by time or space that includes, but is not limited to, ballads, country blues, bluegrass, old-time, Celtic, topical/political, singer-songwriters, Cajun, and more.

Airing Thursday mornings from 9:00–11:00 (eastern) on CKUT 90.3 FM radio in Montreal, the mountain city, Folk Directions reaches parts of northern New York State, northern Vermont, and eastern Ontario. It is also streamed live and archived on the World Wide Web.

For those wishing to submit music for airplay consideration, it would be best, whenever possible, to provide me with a link to preview it rather than sending a CD which I may not air. In any case, I prefer digital files (.wav or flac) accompanied by a pdf of any liner notes there may be. That doesn't mean I won't accept CDs, but it will save me a step.


Folk Directions is a Sing Out! Radio Partner.


News: Problems with the archive recording computer have resulted in shows being lost. However, our Systems Administrator, was able to stitch the file I provided, containing only the music of the following shows: October 27, and November 10. They can be accessed at the Listen page on this site, or at the CKUT archives page by clicking on: Entire Show 128kbps.
