Folk Roots Radio Episode 455: feat. Carly Thomas & More New Releases

Episode 455 of Folk Roots Radio features an interview with London Ontario based singer-songwriter Carly Thomas recorded especially for our video series, the Sun Parlour Coffee House Sessions. Carly plays two songs live from her latest album “Versions”, and also shares a new song with us in the studio. We also check out new music from Sarah Harmer, Twas Now, Winter Wilson, Sofia Talvik, Casey Johnson, James Gordon, VK & Legends Of THE DEEP and Shari Ulrich. Check out the full playlist below.


Folk-pop singer-songwriter Carly Thomas was born in Thailand and raised in Argentina and France before returning to her family roots in London Ontario. Known as much for her powerful lyrics as her engaging live performance, Carly has played everywhere from street festivals in Paris to the folk circuit in Manhattan. Carly released “Versions”, an acoustic collection of original songs revisited, early in 2018. For more information about the music of Carly Thomas, visit Photo: Dale Butler.
