Folk on Tap

Folk On Tap Brief Information

Folk On Tap, currently in abeyance, has been the professional-quality A4 quarterly magazine of SCoFF, the Southern Counties Folk Federation, with around 90 pages per issue. It was produced entirely by voluntary effort up to submission to the printer, with the major contribution from editor Sam Satyanadhan and his wife Sandy and additional help from various other members of the folk community from time to time, with a major recording review section co-ordinated by Geoff Wall. Contributions were unpaid. The centre spread of the magazine was devoted to Diary Dates for all SCoFF member organisations. Artistes were invited to submit their listings for inclusion in the 'Gig Guide'. Cover price was £2.50 as at 2006 (see bottom of page for subscriptions).
