Folk Roots Radio Episode 341: Coco Love Alcorn & More New Releases

Coco Love Alcorn has had an absolutely fabulous year since the release of her latest album “Wonderland”. A gifted folk, pop and jazz singer – as well as a wonderful harmonizer and improviser, Coco sat down with us at Summerfolk to chat about her music and future plans. We’re pleased to bring that interview to you as part of Episode 341 of Folk Roots Radio alongside some of our favourite performances at Summerfolk, and more of the latest new releases including the title track of the new Kris Kristofferson album and one of the last songs that Greg Allman ever recorded.

Coco Love Alcorn‘s latest album “Wonderland” came out of her non-denominational gospel song project, The Spirit Sessions. Since the album’s September 2016 release, Coco has been touring Canada extensively (including a three week Christmas tour with John McDermott) and working with choirs from all across the country. This fall she will be heading off on the Invitation to Sing tour which includes a two night stint in Vancouver where she will be joined by five choirs who will add more than 200 voices to her performance.

Our 2015 interview with Coco, recorded at the Folk Music Ontario conference is also worth checking out. Find it online HERE. For more information about Coco Love Alcorn, visit

And that’s all we have time for, this time around. Thanks to all the artists who share their music with us, and thank you for listening. We have a lot of great music and interviews to bring you on future shows. I hope you’ll join us!
