Singer and composer Moira Smiley joins us on Episode 580 of Folk Roots Radio to chat about “In Our Voices”, her wonderful new album with vocal group VOCO – a recording which predominantly utilizes voice and body percussion to share a powerful anti-racist message. It’s a fabulous album, and a great interview. As always we wrap up the episode with more new releases and this time around we hear from Sophie Janna, Jake Ian, Jaffa Road, Bobby Lee, Craig Cardiff, Andrew Wilson Eskesen and Craig Robertson. Check out the full playlist below.

We have another great performance from our sister video show – The Sun Parlour Coffee House Sessions to bring you on Episode 574 of Folk Roots Radio. This time around we’re joined by Windsor ON based singer-songwriter Philip Scott Poli. Actually, we should say songwriter Philip Scott Poli because Phil is adamant that songwriting is what he loves to do and that he’s not that much of a singer or performer – but we’re going to let you be the judge of that. Phil gave us a great session late last year, and we’re pleased to bring part of that to you on this episode. As always, we also take a look at more of the latest new releases and this time around – it’s all by Canadian artists, as we hear from Bùmarang, Jean-Paul De Roover, Susan Ellenton, Craig Cardiff, Stéafán & Saskia, Scott MacKay, Shane Pendergast, Emmet MacLellan and David LaFleche. Check out the full playlist below.

There are no interviews on this week’s show just lots of great music. We’ve received some great new albums in the early part of this year and it only seemed right to make the music the focus of the show. As usual we found time for a new mystery theme and guilty pleasure.
