Feb. 5-11: WTJU Folk Marathon airs a different kind of “string theory”

When it comes to folk music on WTJU, there’s the guitar, banjo, and mandolin. Sometimes even clarinet, bagpipes, or accordion, when we get a little wild. But we need one more instrument to complete WTJU’s 2018 Folk Marathon tune: YOU.

WTJU’s Folk Marathon hits the airwaves February 5-11 with an incredible lineup of special programs. We need your support to raise $60,000 to keep folk, roots, and world music alive and well on WTJU! Donate today!
