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.

Toronto based singer-songwriter and guitarist Noah Zacharin joins us on this episode of Folk Roots Radio to talk about “Strange Rider”, an album that gives a band treatment to a selection of some of his older songs. It’s one of our favourite albums of the year so far, and definitely worth checking out. As always, we also include music from some of the new releases that we’ve received.
