The next best thing to an all-night polycultural tune immersion

If you listen 5 or 6 of these back-to-back it feels like you’re at Fiddle Tunes! ❤️

Incredible folk music

I’m a little biased but this show is great! So many incredible musicians are showcased, often in recordings of performances that can’t be heard anywhere else

hobemian ,

Impeccable and wonderful

Peter McCracken has great ears and a deep knowledge of traditional music and musicians. His impeccable aesthetic let loose in Centrum’s deep archives retrieves wonderful treasures every show.
