Most of the KentFolk music news is just going into the section below : Added Recently
Hot news still going on the KentFolk FaceBook page, and that is also inserted into this page, just below this section.
My research is going very well, and is keeping me very busy, so less day to day time for KentFolk these days.
But KentFolk things still going well and lots of gigs now going on the new calendar, see below.
KentFolk Google/Facebook Music Calendar :
However there is a now new auto-updating KentFolk Google/Facebook Events calendar,
for any quality live music event in or near Kent, UK :
For a few weeks a damaged data file caused calendar updating problems, but that seems to now have scrolled off,
and the calendar is again updating fine.
KentFolk mobile App for a Kent Music Events Calendar, Music News, etc. :
KentFolk now also offers a simple App for mobile devices, for smartphones and tablets - should now work with most devices.
This App includes Gig Event and Calendar pages, Music News pages, pages for Sessions, Open Stages etc, as well as photos and videos of past events.
The simplest way to get the KentFolk App is just to point your mobile browser to www.KentFolk.com and say yes to installing the App, and then follow the on-screen instructions.
Else use the QR reader.
There are now over 230 users of this App, not all inside Kent.
The August calendar starts with :
Have fun - Dr. Beau Webber
PS. I have put a simple Donate button on the top of KentFolk - if you find the KentFolk Website, App and Calendar useful, please click on it,
even £1, to help repay my time and outgoings.
Good effects from the Live Music Bill being passed :
There are now a number of new music venues in Kent, some of them micro-pubs. There is no doubt that the music is picking up.
122 gigs were upload to the new KentFolk Google/ Facebook calendar in February, and 168 in March, see :
There are now major ongoing upgrades on how news is handled on KentFolk.
The main effect that you will see is that news items from well verified news sources will arrive on the KentFolk News pages
quicker (even when I am busy).
The down-side is that if you are sending news items, please make sure your subject line is snappy and informative, I will no longer
necessarily be hand-editing them for you :
For gigs and events, something like : event title - where - event date :
i.e.: Steve Morrison - Wrotham Arms, Broadstairs - Saturday, 7th Jan. 2012.
For gig lists, something like : group or venue - Gig List - month start to month end
i.e.: The Barge, Gillingham - Monthly Gig List - February 2012.
But if you have a format you have been using to send me news for some time, no problem, I can usually work with that.
The up-side is that whan you are reading news, as well as the usual Genre, Venue, Regional .... classifications for news,
there is now also an "Added Recently" directory, at the top, where you can look through recently added news items :
