Welcome to the first of two very special hours of International Women’s Day programming on Folk Roots Radio. On this episode we feature a great interview with Toronto based vocalist and singer-songwriter Kristine Schmitt recorded at the 2017 Folk Music Ontario Conference alongside new music from Winona Wilde, Rosie & the Riveters, Gwyneth Glyn, Kyle Carey, Emily Mure, I’m With Her and Piper Hayes. It’s a great episode and definitely worth checking out. Check out the full playlist below.
Brian Blain, self-described semi-retired blues guy, “Blainsletter” blogger and managing editor of the Toronto Blues Society‘s Maple Blues newsletter joins us on this episode to chat about his music. Brian stopped by our mobile studio at the 2016 Folk Music Ontario conference for an immensely enjoyable conversation about his 40 plus years in the music business. We also take a look at the nominees for Vocal Group Of The Year at the 2016 Canadian Folk Music Awards.
