Gather ’round! WTJU’s 2024 Folk Marathon airs February 5 – 11

Date: 02/05/2024 - 02/11/2024

Come gather ‘round, people, wherever you roam: From February 5 – 11, WTJU’s 2024 Folk Marathon airs round-the-clock folk and roots specials from around the globe.

We’re gathering our friends for a raft of musical deep dives. From Richard Thompson’s soundman Simon Tassano to local favorite Michael Clem. From Virginia Folklore Society recordings to a celebration of Kevin Donleavy’s 25 years sharing Irish and old-time music. Plus dozens of artist features and deep dives. Check out the full schedule.

Meanwhile, our sound techs are setting up mics for eight live performances in seven days. We’re excited that the line-up includes Buzzard Hollow Boys, Terri Allard Trio, Mama Tried, Erik “Red” Knierim, Barling & Collins, Uncle Henry’s Favorites, Webley Twizzle Project, and Silo! Oh, and did we mention some live squeezebox?
