FOLK REVIEW, UK

    FOLK REVIEW (known as Folk & Country for its first four issues) was a British magazine dedicated to folk music, founded and edited by Fred Woods until its final two issues - which were edited by Bill Caddick. The magazine appeared monthly in the UK, with 91 consecutive monthly issues from November 1971 to May 1979.
    Its content was designed to represent, and appeal to, the interests of the regular audiences of the folk-clubs movement which flourished nationally during the period of the second British Folk Revival, so both traditional and "contemporary" folk music were covered in its features and its concert and record reviews. The proportion to which these two strands should be represented was often a topic of some controversy within its feature and correspondence pages.
