FolkWorld, the European online folk, world and roots music magazine celebrates its 10th anniversary in the world wide web on 1st November 2007. This issue is being published to coincide with the anniversary. Also with this issue, FolkWorld is re-launched at a new .EU domain: www.folkworld.eu, to fully reflect the European dimension of the publication.usw.
Over its 10 years, FolkWorld has developed into the biggest and ultimate resource for European folk, world and roots music on the internet. The "Home of European Music" has accumulated on its website more than 5,000 CD reviews and over 500 articles, live reviews and interviews, plus regular news updates, from European and international artists.

Folksblatt was merged with the other German magazine, Folk Michel, to form the new magazine Folker. Thus Folker has also reached its 10th anniversary this year, and FolkWorld would like to take this opportunity to congratulate our colleagues. ...
