Folk Fan Approved

To create this guide, we reviewed every single article in the English-speaking world which was written about the albums above and tracked how many times each article was shared across social media. We then added up all the shares for each article to determine the websites whose overall folk coverage engaged music fans most.

To ensure that the list is up-to-date and current for you, we’ve spent endless hours removing sites such as music streaming sites, e-tail sites, forums, venues, ticket sales sites, etc. We’ve also removed sites which rarely publish content or have stopped publishing altogether.
