158 cover


STIRRINGS 158 now out...

THE FOLK SCENE never really goes into hibernation. There's always plenty happening over the winter months—but when Spring comes tippy-toeing in there's a definite feeling of going up through the gears. As you'll see from the packed events diary in the new issue of Stirrings.

And if you look closely you may descry a few catkins flickering in the sunlight behind this issue's cover star KATE GREEN. Our scribe Jerry Simon prises from her a few secrets of the singer's art. Shortly before going to press we heard of the passing of the great and seemingly immortal Pete Seeger, and we had just time enough to put together a trip through his remarkable life, courtesy of his old friend Joe Stead.

All this and the usual plethora od CD and live reviews, and a Springtime posy of news, rumour, gossip and hearsay from the Stirrings Zone. Settle down on a bank of sweet primeroses with a copy of Stirrings 158.




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.
