Salut! Live is an offshoot of Salut!, a blog launched by Colin Randall in the autumn of 2006 after he was told he was being made redundant to bring an end to 29 years on The Daily Telegraph, working as district reporter (South West England/South Wales), head office reporter, chief reporter, executive news editor and Paris correspondent. This site followed Salut! in May 2007 and deals predominantly with folk music and related forms - folk-rock, the blues, roots and some of what is called indie music - but strays from time to time into pop, rock and other territory

Unicorn Folk - The key focus will be on the traditional Unicorn catchment area of Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire, Northamptonshire and parts of north London
