Episode 275: We’re All About The Music

We’re playing catch up as far as new releases are concerned on Folk Roots Radio, so there’s no interview in this episode as we focus on bringing you some of the best new music we’ve received over the past few months. We hope you enjoy it.

There will be in Wheatley Ontario for a Road to Folk Fest show on Friday September 23. For more information, and to get tickets visit kingsvillefolkfest.org.
