New Danish online radio broadcasting folk, roots and trad
Due to lack of interest for Danish folk music in Danish media, ROSA – The Danish Rock Council, representing Danish pop and rock music, and since 2013 roots and folk music as well, has started up an online radio station, Radiofolk.dk, in cooperation with the small but exclusive Danish folk music label “Go Danish Folk Music”.
The station is featuring Danish and international roots, folk and trad music 24/7, broadcasted online as live streaming, streaming on demand and podcasting. We are talking live music, recorded music and reporting from festivals and other events – all hosted in Danish and sometimes also in English.
Danish musician, composer and music journalist, Morten Alfred Høirup, is editing, and quite a number of Danish musicians and activists are contributing to the station. Høirup says:
“This might be a very little radio station, but we are all very determined to communicate all the great things that are happening on the Danish roots, folk and trad music scene these days. The last weekend of August we are going to send music and interviews in Danish and English from great Danish Tønder Festival. We will focus on “Folk Spot Denmark”, which is a showcase program featuring seven Danish and one Norwegian folk bands, but of course we will report from the rest of the festival as well. You can listen at www.radiofolk.dk – we are streaming live, streaming on demand and podcasting”
You will find a 1 hour and 15 minutes program about the Danish roots, folk and trad music scene, as well as about the great Danish Tønder Festival at: http://www.radiofolk.dk/introduction-to-the-danish-roots-and-folk-music-scene-hosted-in-english/
