Enjoy a steady flow of great instrumental folk and country music on Share Music, the music streaming channel of Share Radio. With tracks from many different countries recorded over the past 50 years, this is great music to accompany you when working, relaxing or travelling: not least because there’s no vocals to break your stream of thought!
We also publicise great local folk festivals throughout the United Kingdom with the help of UK Folk Festivals:
Share Radio, which provides Share Music, is based in Westminster, London in the United Kingdom. Its speech broadcast channel is the UK’s national money and business station, ‘sharing ideas about money’
However Share Music just offers the international language of music without words, you’ll feel at home with us wherever you live, across the world.
We’re not aware of any other music streaming station which specialises in instrumental folk music: if you know of one, please tell us! But we hope you really enjoy the quality music we have to offer here, whether Celtic, Spanish, African, Indian, American or English: and of course there are some of the greats in acoustic guitar here, including Leo Kottke, Etta Baker, John Fahey and Doc Watson. Here's an introduction to our large and growing repertoire.
Finally, we're very keen to receive your recommendations for instrumental folk music - no singing, please!
