This edition of Folk Roots Radio features an interview with roots-based singer-songwriter Ken Tizzard who sat down with us at the Folk Music Ontario conference this past October to chat about his new album “No Dark No Light”. We also include a selection of music from artists who are on tour in Ontario this spring.
Fred Eaglesmith’s travelling show lands in Mount Pleasant (October 23) and Cambridge (October 24) in Ontario this month. Expect some fantastic live music, lots of jokes and a pie auction at intermission. Fred’s last studio album was the AM/FM friendly Tambourine (2013); he’s just about to head back into the studio to work on what is expected to be a more rootsy follow-up.
