Country Folk with Colin Smith

The Countryfolk Show is nothing to do with the Archers – for those of you of a certain age – or what goes on in rural Cheshire BUT it’s a show that brings you the best of country and folk music from around the world. There can be old and new, but I always try and give a few facts about each track. Each show will include at least one Irish track; one track from around the globe (other than N. America and the U.K); one track from the movies and one mainstream artist performing a piece of country or folk music.

So if your music tastes are either folk or country music then tune in on Monday evenings between 10 and 11 for the ONLY pure country and folk show on WFM!


I’m Colin Smith and I’ve been at WFM for about 18 months. During this time I’ve been the co-presenter on the Evergreen Show on a Thursday afternoon and I was a co-presenter on the Out & About Show. Now branching out into this field and thoroughly enjoying it!

    Colin, my music has been called country folk. I started playing folk music back in the ’60s, moved into rock and surf music when I lived in California, moved to Texas and got into country. Now it seems what I write has a little of all of that. If you are so inclined, and can,you may use my music on your radio show. Thanks for listening.
