fonn celebrates traditional music and song in words, images and videos.

The site includes news items, reviews and feature articles along with videos and images.

fonn is the Irish for an air or a tune. But it can also mean desire or enthusiasm. This website is enthusiastic about airs and tunes – traditional music and song.

Our approach to traditional music and song is respectful. We respect those who work to preserve the tradition. Equally we respect those who explore the boundaries of the tradition by collaborating with musicians in other genres and styles.

We believe in parity of esteem for both of these movements within traditional and folk music. They are complementary – not incompatible.
