The FolkBlog is a blog about folk and related music from Greg Grant of Columbus, Ohio, founder and sole proprietor of Festival Radio. Festival Radio is an eclectic Internet broadcast featuring a wide variety of folk and folk-related genres, including the following musical styles:

  • Traditional folk
  • Contemporary folk

This blog focuses on reporting news from the station (new adds, changes in service, etc.), news from the folk music world, as well as album and concert reviews.

For his day job, Greg Grant is a webmaster and corporate communications specialist for a real estate research company in Columbus, Ohio, and in his spare time, when not previewing folk music,  he also sings for the Columbus Symphony Chorus and blogs about the Cleveland Indians and Cleveland sports.
