For Folk’s Sake Sessions

The For Folk’s Sake Sessions are my original and most active session project.

I take pitches either directly from artists or via agent by email at duncan@forfolkssake.com. Please put “SESSION” in the title to make it easy to find amongst all my bulk PR email. If I don’t reply within a week give me a nudge.

Please provide some example music and an idea of when you’d ideally like to record or publish. Please note there can be gap of several weeks between recording and first publication.

There is no charge for these recordings.

Booking priorities

Anything in the (broad) musical scope of the site is fine. That includes: traditional, contemporary or alt folk, singer-songwriters, roots & country. Or music that contains elements of those things.

Format

The default is to publish a single song.

Normally, we’d record at least two songs and I’ll provide rush mixes of all. You can then choose which performance bests represent you, and that will get the full video edit.

Depending on my workload, I may be able to fully edit and publish an additional song. If this isn’t possible, I can provide a very simple video of the rejected song.

Publishing

Each session will appear on the main site, YouTube and as Facebook native video.

Facebook is our main social platform as we see the best results there and we run Facebook campaigns to help exposure.

Location

By default, for 1–3 musicians sessions are recorded at my studio in South East London. Recording on-location is sometimes possible, and can look more interesting, if you have somewhere suitable.
