TThe Folk Club with Stuart Green
The Folk Club is a regular show, broadcast on Soham Radio, Blues & Roots Radio and Mixcloud. It first
started in September 2020 when host, Stuart Green, was asked if he would like his own show.
Entertainer Stuart, who is a massive fan of the genre and also a founder member of the band Isle ‘ave
a Shanty jumped at the chance and hasn’t looked back since. In the short time on air, this local show
has quickly gathered a global audience right across the folk world. Stuart plays traditional and
contemporary folk, roots and acoustic music on the show and draws upon a range of sources.
The Featured Artist
In each show Stuart chooses a featured artist and has had a huge number of high-profile performers
willing to take part, including folk royalty such as Show of Hands, Jon Boden, The Young’Uns, Gerry
Colvin, Damien Barber and many more. Featured artists introduce and tell some of the stories behind
their songs that they then share, and Stuart constructs the show around them.
Here We Are
This section of the show is very close to Stuart’s heart as he believes that everyone should have a
chance to be heard. He recognises that there are thousands of musicians out there – up and coming
as well as established artists – who do not always get the opportunities to be heard so he set up this
section of the show and invited artists, through social media, to make contact and share their music.
He has had an overwhelming response and plays approximately three tracks each week. Some
performers in this section have gone on to become Featured Artists too!
The Folk Club Challenge
A regular feature of the show is the ‘Folk Club Challenge’. Voluntary performers are given a challenge,
by Stuart, to rearrange and record a song of his choice and then when its ready, he plays it on the
The Rest of The Show
The rest of the show gives Stuart the opportunity to play some of his favourite tracks from artists from
across the UK and the rest of the world. It features interviews, sessions and news from the folk world,
plus your requests and a great mix of folk, roots and acoustic music.
