We’re sailing on the roots music cruise Cayamo from January 17-24. The plan is to enjoy a little R & R and respite from, let’s be honest, the (at times) brutal reality of a Canadian winter. We’ll be relaxing and enjoying amazing music from a bunch of great artists (I’m not going to name any of them so you’ll have to go and check them out here yourselves and possibly consider signing up for a future trip – it’s pretty cool!). Generally we will be recharging our batteries prior to coming back with a whole bunch of new music and interviews to share with you. In the meantime, why not check out all the great music and interviews we currently offer here. While we’re away we’ll be playing a couple of archive shows but that isn’t a bad thing. If you don’t believe me – check out our archives on Mixcloud. There’s lots of great stuff to keep you entertained until our return. See you with an all new show and interviews the weekend of January 31!
Tyler Wagler has the official release of his latest E.P. “4 Songs” at the Delhi Street Bistro, 64 Delhi Street Guelph on January 15 2015 at 7 p.m. There is no cover. For this show, Tyler will be joined by Thom Hammerton on Keys. Tyler recently joined us in the studio for a feature length conversation about his music. You can listen to that interview again in full here.
This week’s Folk Roots Radio (January 10 2015) featured an interview with Toronto-based singer-songwriter Shawna Caspi who recently released her third album, a beautiful slice of coffee house style folk entitled “Apartments for lovers” alongside a new mystery theme and guilty pleasure, and music from some of the major artists who will be appearing on the great roots music cruise Cayamo this year.
Shawna Caspi describes herself as a guitar-picking, classically-trained folkie with a sweet-tooth for a good story, a sly lyrical wit, and a rich, powerful voice. She’s just released a great third album of coffee-house style folk, “Apartments for Lovers”. We caught up with Shawna at home in Toronto. Music: Shawna Caspi, “Anchor”, “I’m Trying To Leave” and “Not So Silent” from “Apartments For Lovers” (2014, Self)
