WELCOME !

FolkPod is a Podcast with your host, Cheryl Prashker. Every two weeks, we will be speaking with some of the most entertaining musicians and songwriters we know. We will hear stories about their lives, art, inspiration, and what moves them. With a little luck, we’ll also get some incredible music, and we will try to figure out what “folk” really means ‘cause lord knows it’s hard to define. 

You can find FolkPod wherever you get your podcasts: Spotify , Podbean , Apple  and Folk Music Notebook
