STIRRINGS 159 now out...

FROM Bellowhead to Christopher Biggins; from Billy Connolly to Martin & Eliza Carthy...Stirrings 159 casts its net as widely and wantonly as ever. Besides the above, we also have a full-length interview with JP Bean, author of the newly-published "oral history" of the folk club scene, Singing From The Floor, and we bid a sad farewell to one of the Stirrings Zone's finest singers and musicians, Hugh Waller.

PLUS the usual avalanche of news, reviews, blather and badinage, and the most comprehensive guide to folkish activities in these latitudes that you could reasonably wish for. All in glorious summery full colour: a thing of beauty and a joy forever.





We're living in the white heat of the CD revolution. Nowadays the facilities to record and market a CD are available to almost everyone, and CDs are becoming as common on the folk scene as roadkill on a B-road, though usually they smell better. Well, you've made one—the next step is to get it reviewed on folk-flavoured websites and in magazines like this one. So what do you need to do to get your CD (or DVD, or book—we cover those too) reviewed in Stirrings? Step one is to send a copy to the editor, and include with it a press release or other information so that we know something about you and where readers can buy copies. That's it, really. There is no Step two. Our Reviews section gets bigger with each successive issue, so what we can't fit into the paper version of the magazine we'll carry in the Reviews Extra section here on the website.
