Folk Roots Radio Episode 291: The Best Albums of 2016

Time to run down our favourite albums of 2016. One of the best things about doing a radio show is getting loads of great music to audition each week.

One of the hardest things to do though, is to narrow down all the fabulous music that we received to our ten favourite recordings of the year.
