I’ve been a big fan of folkalley.com for quite a few years. I listen to Folk Alley very often when I just want background music when I am working or when I am driving. Folk Alley is a genre busting station that plays more than just Folk Music. They play acoustic instrumental music (such as Bela Fleck and Edgar Meyer, Leo Kotke), Irish Music, old acoustic rock music, alt country music, modern singer/songwriters and more other genres than I can mention. Folk Alley plays music that you just can’t find on other radio stations. I’ve discovered lots of new music and new artists (both current and old) through Folk Alley. I often discover a new artist on Folk Alley and then do deep dives on these artists by listening to their albums on Tidal.
Folk Alley is a public radio station and they depend upon donations to stay on the air. I am a Folk Alley member (I donate money every year) and I listen to their basic stream on my Aries Mini as well as on the Folk Alley app on my iPhone when I am out of the house. Since I am a Folk Alley member, they provided me with a URL that I can use that does not have the pleas for donations.
The URL for the basic Folk Alley stream is: Folk Alley
Folk Alley has other content including live video’s and audio streams available through their apps or web site. If you like acoustic music, it is well worth checking out.
