Folk on the Airwaves sign now

The BBC is currently undertaking a Strategy Review Consultation and they want to know what you, the pay-masters, think. This is folk music's opportunity to express its views and challenge the BBC to increase its presentation of folk music.

As a public service broadcaster, the BBC should provide regular folk music programming on a variety of platforms, specifically including a digital platform with dedicated stations for folk, jazz, world, roots etc. Broadcast media also provides an invaluable platform for folk artists to develop and sustain a professional career. So as the world's largest broadcasting organisation, it is vital that the BBC recognises and fulfils it role of supporting artists without whom there would be no programme content, by broadcasting their music. The BBC should fulfil the Director General's proposed priorities of "inspiring knowledge, music and culture" and to be broadcasting music that other broadcasters do not.

I support the EFDSS campaign for increased folk representation on the BBC and a digital platform for under-represented music, as I believe that without this the BBC is not fulfilling its public service remit. I would like the BBC Trust to recognise this as part of their Strategy Review Consultation.
