We’re taking a distinctly female musical perspective on Episode 380 of Folk Roots Radio as we chat to Liv and Anita Cazzola from Guelph’s The Lifers about their sophomore release “Honey Suite”. Liv and Anita have been delighting listening audiences across Canada since there release of their first E.P. “Set the Sails” (2014) and their first long player “Out & In” (2016), although our relationship with them goes back to their first band as a duo, Detour. It’s a great interview – well worth sticking around for. We also check out more new music from female performers including new releases from Doris Folkens, Alicia Toner and Ali McCormick and Carly Thomas. Check out the full playlist below.
Edmonton based singer-songwriter Jay Gilday joins us on Episode 379 of Folk Roots Radio to chat about his music. Whether playing solo or with his power trio, Jay is a captivating performer who weaves together aspects of his own ancestral traditions: Dene spirituals, Irish ballads, into Canadian folk and rock to produce a sound that is very much his own. We also check out more of the new music we’ve received, including the latest releases from The Once, Birds of Chicago, Manitoba Hal, David Francey, Colm Gavin and The Fugitives. It’s a great episode, and definitely worth sticking around for. Check out the full playlist below.
