From the Margins : About
From the Margins is a music blog, established at the start of 2016. It is a personal project, fuelled by discovering things in the real world. Everything included is stumbled on by mooching about at gigs and events, or pacing the streets of towns. A few thousand readers a week turn up from searches, links and artists' social media.
The focus is acoustic and folk music, covered by live review and interview; the physical range of interest is the communities located at the edges of the Irish & Celtic Seas.
Punk, electronica, books, interesting community projects and grassroots activism work their way into the mix whenever they seem to fit. Experience has suggested that when something is found with political heft and a sense of place, it is worth following the path of distraction.
