Folk Roots Radio Episode 432: feat. John Muirhead & More New Releases

London ON based singer-songwriter John Muirhead first landed on our radar as a member of the Developing Artist Program (formerly the Youth Program) at the 2016 Folk Music Ontario conference. He has since released two E.P.s and is now working on his first full length record. John Muirhead joins us on Episode 432 of Folk Roots Radio for a great conversation about his music. We also check out new music from Pete Eastmure, Jamie Shea, Lula Wiles, Steve Poltz, Kate Weekes, Outside I’m A Giant, Matt Mays, Dave McEathron and Benjamin Dakota Rogers. Check out the full playlist below.


John Muirhead released his second E.P. “Foundational” in June 2018, the follow up to “Yesterday’s Smile”. John sat down with Jan Hall from Folk Roots Radio at the 2018 Folk Music Ontario conference. Since the interview he has released another single “I Can Sleep Anywhere”.
