Interviews

tynefolk interviews are held periodically. They begin at 7.30pm for an hour where the invited guest enters into conversation, generally with a tynefolk regular, discussing their life and beginnings in Folk Music.

Interview

The interview and their following performance are recorded onto a double CD. This recording is made and sold, with the full permission of the guest, only to attendees of tynefolk who order on the night. A copy is held for the tynefolk archive and a further copy is introduced into Newcastle University Folk Degree Course Library.

In this way, tynefolk hope to help keep alive the sound and conversation of these important contributors to our Folk Tradition in perpetuity.
