Coming up as we go Live & Local on Folk Roots Radio, we’re featuring an interview with acclaimed bassist and multi-instrumentalist David Woodhead, who joins us to chat about his upcoming Ontario tour dates with his genre-defying side project Confabulation. Guelph-based storyteller Brad Woods also joins us to chat about his new live storytelling album “The Woods” and upcoming appearance at the Guelph Civic Museum for Fourth Friday on January 22nd.
Guelph-based storyteller Brad Woods is the featured performer for Fourth Friday at the Guelph Civic Museum on Friday January 22. As on every Fourth Friday, general admission to the museum is free after 5 p.m. and the free show runs from 7-9 p.m. Brad has just released his latest storytelling album “The Woods”, dedicated to his parents and featuring his brother Greg on percussion. The album was recorded live at a house concert in Guelph by Phil Cottrell and Tim Alberts. We caught up with Brad at home in Guelph to chat about the new album. Photo credit: Ken Meats RBP.

On July 1 2009, in our former guise as Royal City Rag we were “live on location” in Riverside Park, Guelph for a Canada Day celebration with storytellers Sya Van Geest and Brad Woods, and singer-songwriter Sam Turton. Despite the poor weather, all turned out sunny on a fun show. One of our favourites, and worthy of a replay. Enjoy!

On April 1 2009 to celebrate April Fool’s Day we were broadcasting live from an undisclosed Guelph location with storytellers Sya Van Guest and Brad Woods, and singer-songwriter Sam Turton. This was certainly one of our favourite shows. It’s definitely worth a listen!
