Welcome to The Saloon

Welcome to The Saloon

Howdy folks. I’m Andy Green and I’d like to welcome you to The Saloon, the online home of Radio Warrington’s Country & Folk Show (that’s me at the foot of this page).

The Saloon is a virtual honky tonk bar and folk club rolled into one. It’s an online music emporium where listeners of my show – and others – can read about, talk about and listen to great music whilst supping a pint of ale and/or cupping their hands over their ears in the comfort of their own homes. 

Stereotypes aside, inside The Saloon it’s country, folk, roots, red dirt and Americana music all the way. But be warned, there’s bouncers on the doors and they won’t put up with any scrapping over what’s authentic and what’s not! Let’s be honest, compared to most of the stuff in the pop charts, it’s all good!

So what can you expect from a visit to The Saloon?

  • The stories behind some of the world’s greatest songs in our Tale Behind The Tune feature.
  • The low-down on some of the genres’ most iconic venues, people and moments in our In The Spotlight feature.
  • Details of upcoming Gigs where you can watch new and established artists performing their music live.
  • And much more as and when I get the time as my main focus is putting together a quality country & folk radio show every Monday night!

If you already listen to Radio Warrington’s Country & Folk Show you’ll know what to expect. If you don’t, feel free to check out some past shows on demand at my Mixcloud Page. The show goes out live every Monday evening at 8pm GMT at radiowarrington.co.uk, on App and on Smart Speaker. All the ways you can listen are listed here.

So sit back, relax and enjoy your time in The Saloon. And if want to tip the bartender, feel free to buy him a drink if you see him out and about at any of the gigs listed on our Gig Guide. Like the Longford Lover, he’s quite partial to a pint of mild.
