Just Us Folk is a weekly one-hour program on CKPC Radio 1380 AM / 92.1 FM Brantford, Ontario, Canada, featuring all sorts of music you could call Folk. You'll hear some great singer-songwriters, traditional music, Celtic music in all its forms, a bit of bluegrass and maybe a surprise or two. Each show highlights a couple of interview segments with a featured performer or group, plus a couple of songs by that artist. After that, it's all a toss-up as to what you'll hear. We also highlight area concerts by touring performers and local folk clubs. Each week we'll post the playlist of the previous show and the one coming up.

Jan Vanderhorst has hosted Just Us Folk since the show's inception in 1981. In that time he's interviewed hundreds of performers, ranging from Gordon Lightfoot, Mary Travers and Pete Seeger to Garnet Rogers, John Gorka and Ferron. The interviews have taken place in-studio, over the phone and backstage at some of Ontario's great festivals.

Besides hosting Just Us Folk, Jan has written articles for Fast Folk Musical Magazine and currently contributes articles about folk performers to towerofbabel.com.
