Folk Roots Radio Episode 412: feat. Carly Dow & More New Releases

Episode 412 of Folk Roots Radio features an interview with banjo toting Manitoba based roots singer-songwriter, Carly Dow, who sat down with us at the 2018 Folk Music Ontario conference to chat about her great new sophomore release “Comet”. We also check out more of the new music we’ve received including new releases from Caribou Run, Davie Furey, David Milton, Rachel Beck, Jesse Matas, Craig Bickhardt, Ben Heffernan and Abigail Lapell. Check out the full playlist below.


Although more celestial in tone than her earthy debut “Ingrained”, Carly Dow’s new album “Comet” is still deeply connected to nature and the wildness that lives amongst us – and within us, on ten new songs written at her, mostly off the grid, backwoods retreat in the wilds of Manitoba.

The new album, co-produced with Matt Filopoulus, features Carly Dow on her signature clawhammer banjo and acoustic guitar with support from some fine Winnipeg based musicians including Matt Filopoulus on electric guitar, pedal steel and dobro; Murray Jewett and Julian Bradford (strings) and Jeremy Rusu (accordion) with harmony vocals from Madeleine Roger and Logan McKillop.
