Canada Day 2009

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!

Folk Roots Radio

We’ve just completed 100 posts on our new website. We hope you are enjoying it. As always we’d love some feedback – whether it is a suggestion for music to play, artists to invite into the studio or a Guilty Pleasure – that song you still love although you think others will find it unfashionable. Take it from me, there are a lot of people out there who will enjoy hearing your Guilty Pleasure, and learning why you still like it. We’ll catch up with you on Saturday morning, bright and early with a new mystery theme, a couple of interesting interviews and lots of great music. You won’t want to miss it!

The Bombadils – In The Studio

Montreal-based progressive celtic/bluegrass band The Bombadils joined us in the studio on May 10 2014. Their music draws from Québecois, Irish, and bluegrass folk influences but as a whole it’s pure Bombadils; a decidedly contemporary sound that combines soaring melodic lines, tight rhythmic energy, and virtuosity.

Formed in 2009 at McGill University, the band has performed regularly since then around Montreal in pubs and cafés while completing their studies in jazz and classical music. They released their debut CD “Fill Your Boots!” in 2012 and will release their new album, tentatively called Grassy Roads, Wandering Feet (after a Yeats poem that forms that basis for a song on the new album) later this year.

Folk Roots Radio on May 10 2014 (Episode 149) featured an in studio appearance by Montreal-based progressive celtic/bluegrass band The Bombadils and lots of great new music.

John Hall – In Memoriam Part 2

My father, John, passed away on August 6 2011. In his memory, my mother Jean, and, Susan Wheeler, joined me for a very special show on November 5 2011, featuring a lot of the music my father loved and enjoyed. It was a great show and one that deserved to be repeated. We hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed bringing it to you.
