Playful Americana-folk duo The Rough & Tumble, join us on Episode 314 of Folk Roots Radio to chat about their music and first tour of Southern Ontario. Originally from Nashville – that’s now just where they collect their mail, since they gave up the home base in favour of the open road, and life in a sixteen foot camper van, with only their dogs for company. As always, we also take a look at more of the best of the latest new releases. Check out the full playlist below.
Guy Davis is a master of both traditional and contemporary blues, and definitely worth checking out in concert. The good news is that he will be touring in Ontario this fall. Guy will be playing nine Ontario dates during the tour including Hugh’s Room in Toronto (October 3), The Acoustic Grill in Picton (October 7) and NEAT Bursntown Schoolhouse (October 12). As well as regular shows, he’ll also be be playing a Wellesley and District Lions Club fundraiser at the Wellesley Community Centre, 1000 Maple Street in Wellesley on October 8 at 7 p.m. Advance tickets for the fundraiser are $20 ($25 at the door). The proceeds will support the construction of an accessible playground in Wellesley. Advance tickets for the fundraiser can be purchased by e-mailing Peter van der Maas at firstname.lastname@example.org. Guy’s latest album, the fabulous “Juba Dance”, from 2013, features Fabrizio Poggi on harmonica, the Blind Boys of Alabama and Lea Gilmore.
