Folk Roots Radio Episode 296: Banjofest Guelph Interview & More New Releases

We love the banjo on Folk Roots Radio which is a very good thing, as this edition has more than the usual amount included. We talk to Ian Molesworth about Banjofest – a one day festival taking place in Guelph in March and listen to some of the artists who will be taking part. We also check in on some of the artists who will be performing at the 10th annual Hillside Inside which takes place in Downtown Guelph from February 9-12. Among the new releases, we get to hear some great musical commentary about the recent political upheaval south of the border.

Sweet and Sunny South

This is a nice video to a beautiful song, the thought-provoking “Sweet and Sunny South”, by New Orleans based singer-songwriter Gina Forsyth (of The Malvinas) . It’s a song that speaks to the culture of the deep south of the United States. It really has great cross over potential for folk and politics; perfect for those who enjoy what we do here at Folk Roots Radio but also take in the humorous political commentary and interviews on our sister show Beyond the Ballot Box. Thanks to uber-humour-folkie Christine Lavin for the heads-up and the video.
