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.

Folk Directions is a Sing Out! Radio Partner.


I was unavailable to present the July 31st edition of Folk Directions. In its place a previous edition was re-aired.

CKUT’s 2014 funding drive is taking place from October 23rd to November 2nd, and Folk Directions' funding drive show is on the 30th. In addition to the regular gifts for those who contribute, this year I'll be raffling off a pair of tickets to two Hello Darlin' Productions concerts and I'll have copies of Scott Alarik's book, Revivial (hard copy or e-book). You may pledge in advance using the link below, or call in to Folk Directions during the program on the 30th between 9 and 10:30 a.m. (the raffle will be drawn at 10:30). Of course, you may show your financial support for Folk Directions by contributing any time during the year using CKUT's secure online pledge form. Many thanks!
