Guelph ON’s Alanna Gurr joins us on Episode 623 of Folk Roots Radio to chat about her latest album, “Life Of the Party”, which she worked on during COVID lockdown with singer-songwriter and producer Jim Bryson. There’s a wonderfully fragile quality to this recording, that seems to fit the strange times we’re living through. We wrap up the rest of the episode with more of the latest new releases, and this time round we hear from The Ebbs, Malcolm McWatt, Harley Kimbro Lewis, Jean-Michel Blais, woe11er, Colin James and Richard Koechli. Remember, if you like what you hear on Folk Roots Radio… and want to support the artists… don’t just stream their music, BUY their music and then you’ll really make a difference to their income during this difficult time, when live show opportunities are harder to come by.

Guelph singer-songwriter Peter F Light released his first long player “Just For The Record”, a warm and engaging mix of folk, pop, and 70s singer-songwriter style original songs in late 2016. Earlier this year, Peter joined us in the Quantum Sound Productions studio in Kingsville Ontario to record an edition of the Sun Parlour Coffee House Sessions. Episode 337 of Folk Roots Radio features our interview with Peter alongside a couple of songs recorded at the session. We also include a look at some of the latest new releases. Check out the full playlist below.
We’re all about the music again on Episode 333 of Folk Roots Radio as we hold back the interviews to bring you another hour of the latest new releases. This time around, we check out the latest releases from political folkies Emma’s Revolution, sibling harmony duo Chris & Meredith Thompson and “All My Heroes Sang The Blues”, the final album from California based singer-songwriter Sandy Ross, who sadly passed away recently. We also check out Danish singer-songwriter Morten Remar‘s first international release ‘Beautiful Day” and another new demo from prolific folk posters Big Little Lions, “Better Than This”.
