Alec Fraser Jr is a renowned bass player and producer/engineer, and half of dynamic roots duo Fraser/Daley. He’s now added singer-songwriter to his resume. Alec Fraser Jr joins us on Episode 595 of Folk Roots Radio to chat about his extensive career in music and excellent new solo album “On The Wings Of The Wind”. It’s a wonderful conversation – we hope you’ll stay with us to check it out. As always, we wrap up the rest of the episode with more new releases, and this time around we hear from Serious Child & Andy Ruddy, OXLIP, Aasiva and Graham Rorie. We also include a special musical tribute to Nanci Griffith who sadly passed away recently. Check out the full playlist below.
Ukulele bluesman Manitoba Hal released a great double live album “Live in Ghent” earlier this year – the perfect introduction to his music. Hal joined us in the Quantum Sound Productions studio in Kingsville Ontario to record an edition of the Sun Parlour Coffee House Sessions during which he chatted about the new project and played a few songs live. We’re pleased to bring that interview and a couple of songs from the session to Episode 336 of Folk Roots Radio. We also take a look at more of the latest new releases.
