Tune in WTJU’s Folk Marathon! February 15 – 21

Like you, WTJU has evolved with these crazy times. We’ve brought you inspiration and connection through music.

Now we need your support to keep WTJU going!

Whether it’s DJs hosting from home studios or socially distanced live music, WTJU Folk has been able to bring harmony and renewal to so many people.

Our evolution continues during this year’s WTJU Folk, Roots, and World Marathon, airing round-the-clock music from February 15 – 21. We’re raising $60,000 to keep this community treasure going strong.

Whether your favorites are John Prine, Rhiannon Giddens, Taj Mahal, John Jackson, Dolly Parton, or Bob Dylan… when you connect with WTJU’s Folk Marathon, you’ll find authentic music playing for you.

WTJU amplifies local artists, and this year’s Folk Marathon will air live music every day for you. We’re excited to feature Bob Girard & Charlie Pastorfield, Chamomile & Whiskey, Michael Clem & Rusty Speidel, Earlysville Bluegrass Boys, Beleza, and more!

WTJU is here for you – and it’s because of you that we continue to survive and thrive!
