“It’s a terrible name, but we’re stuck with it now,” say The Young ’Uns, Folk Awards favourites. Colin Irwin gets the anecdotes.
SISTER MOVEMENT
Seven years on from their first ever magazine feature in these very pages, fan Tim Chipping catches up with the now un-emigrated Staves.

THE FOLK WARS
From the Ethnic Militant Faction to Fear & Loathing At Cecil Sharp House, there’s nothing that folkies like more than a good opinionated scrap. Colin Irwin surveys some historic battles.
REALITY REARRANGED
Folk singers never existed and traditional songs are only a few hundred years old, max. So that’s all good then. Jon Wilks gets the word from the man who’s done the research, Steve Roud.
