Fledg'ling Records is a British independent record label founded in 1991. The label has re-released some albums previously issued by Hokey Pokey Records which was also run by the Fledg'ling founder - David Suff. David Suff having been half of the team running the Richard Thompson fanzine - "Hokey Pokey" (named after a Richard and Linda Thompson LP). Both record labels specialise in classic and new British folk and folk-rock. Fledg'ling is based in London but the organisation is low-profile.

Their first release was Alright Jack by Home Service in 1991 (FLY 001). Indeed no other records can be traced on the label until another album by Home Service "Wild Life" in 1995. Many of the early releases feature contributions by Graeme Taylor. The graphic artist David Suff[1] is the only publicly acknowledged name to be associated with the label.

They are funded or supported by enthusiasts of this kind of music - Richard Thompson and Davey Graham. The most acclaimed releases by Fledg'ling have been boxed sets of Sandy Denny, Shirley Collins and Ralph McTell, and the last three albums by Helen Watson.

Amazon, CD Universe[2] and other online shops also refer to this label as "Fledgling" (without the apostrophe).
