Did everyone catch last Sunday’s ‘Rock Night’ on Channel 4?…no, us neither.

However, this Saturday, More 4 are changing musical direction
and hosting a night/a couple of hours all about the wonders of folk!

From 10pm tomorrow evening, sit down to the likes of ‘Get Folked: The Great Folk Revival’, where Ade Edmondson, Bob Geldof, Frank Turner, Jake Bugg and Billy Bragg explain the enduring appeal of this music genre and why its recent resurgence is so perfectly timed. The show also includes outstanding acoustic performances from The Unthanks, Jake Bugg and Newton Faulkner

Following that, More 4 will be showing a folk special from the iTunes Festival that includes a compilation of the best folk and acoustic performances from this year’s event, such as Jack Johnson, Jake Bugg and The Lumineers

Finally, the evening ends with ‘Big Easy Express’, the feature documentary that highlights the journey of Mumford And Sons, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros and Old Crow Medicine Show on their train tour across America – not to be missed

So make sure you’re in, or have set it to record, or watch it the next day through the power of the internet whilst you’re lying on the sofa, eating your ninth bowl of cereal and asking, ‘why God, why did I do tequila last night!?’

Ok? Good!
