Folk Music Notebook 2021 Covid19 relief "tip jar"


Folk Music Notebook  is a 24/7 Internet radio channel devoted to promoting the work of the contemporary folk music community as well as honoring traditional artists who planted the seeds and perpetuated folk traditions.  Our hosts and programs include some of the finest folk shows from across the country.   Due to the Covid19 pandemic, our resources have come to a halt - independent artists, festivals and venues no longer had the funds to advertise on the channel.  In order to continue our operations, we are seeking funds to help us pay the rights fees for playing music (Soundexchange, ASCAP, BMI among others).   Our operational costs also need to be maintained to continue to provide our around the clock programming.    Support will help insure our continued broadcasts and help us continue to grow.  In our first two years, we have received overwhelmingly positive reviews from listeners as well as awards for our service.   

We are grateful for your support, understanding that during this pandemic money is tight for all, but your help will keep operating and bringing great and often undiscovered music to listeners worldwide.
