Jake Bugg, Frank Turner and Alt-J are all set to feature in a new documentary about folk music which will be broadcast tonight (December 7) on More4.

Get Folked: The Great Folk Revival explores the resurgence in popularity of folk music amongst contemporary artists as well as featuring new performances recorded for the programme. Also contributing to the show are Richard Thompson, The Lumineers, Donovan, Martin Carthy, The Unthanks, Newton Faulkner, Seth Lakeman and Bob Geldof.

The show airs tonight on More4 at 10pm. Of the programme, Channel 4 states: "Something incredible has been happening in the music scene over the last few years. Folk - a musical tradition with roots in the pre-electric world - is now becoming the new 21st-century pop phenomenon... Is it the antidote to manufactured music, the new punk, or simply evidence of the enduring appeal of this age-old musical form?".

Currently on tour in North America, Frank Turner plays a special charity show with Billy Bragg for Shelter at London Wilton's Music Hall on December 18. The singer-songwriter will perform seven huge gigs in February 2014, starting in Cardiff on February 6 and ending in Portsmouth on February 13.

Frank Turner will play:

Cardiff, Motorpoint Arena (February 6 2014)
Nottingham, Capital FM Arena (7)
Edinburgh, Corn Exchange (8)
Manchester, Phones 4u Arena (9)
Plymouth, Pavilions (11)
London, The O2 (12)
Portsmouth, Guildhall (13)
