Join us on Episode 616 of Folk Roots Radio for another hour of great new music, and a selection of songs that have a little bit of a new start feeling about them.

This time around we hear from Lucy MacNeil (from The Barra McNeils), Sarah McQuaid, Michael Logen, Jennifer Cutting’s Ocean Orchestra, Tony McManus, Sophia Tice, Dar Williams, Sanctuary Song Project (feat. Vivian Leva & Riley Calcagno), Big Little Lions, Gurf Morlix, Moira Smiley & Piers Faccini, Joe Nolan , Dizzy & Fay, Melanie Peterson and Christa Couture.

We’ve just released our 600th episode of Folk Roots Radio! To celebrate, we’re pleased to bring you another great interview. Suzie Ungerleider joins us on the show for a wonderful conversation about her latest album.

Suzie is now making music under her own name and she’s just released a great new recording, “My Name Is Suzie Ungerleider”. As always, we wrap up the episode with more new releases, and this time around they are all by female artists. Join us for new music from ALMA, Annie Sumi, Julie Title, Colleen Power, HEISK, Sierra Ferrell, Valerie Smith and Dar Williams. Check out the full playlist below.
