We’re pleased to bring you more of the latest new releases on Episode 647 of Folk Roots Radio. This time around we hear from Joe Nolan, Bob Stark, Bywater Call, Shirley Eikhard (RIP), Eric van der Westen and Louis Mhlanga, Julian Taylor, Peter Mulvey & Sistastrings, Shane Pendergast, Charlie Parr, and Corb Lund, alongside an extended musical tribute to Canadian musical icon Ian Tyson who sadly left us recently. We’re biased but we think it’s a nice mix. Enjoy! Remember, If you like the artists you hear on this show and want to support them, don’t just stream their music – BUY their music, and then you’ll really make a difference to their income at a time when it is becoming much more difficult to make a living as a musician. Check out the full playlist below.
Manitoba singer-songwriter Del Barber joins us on Episode 468 of Folk Roots Radio to chat about his fabulous new Americana flavoured album “Easy Keeper”. Easy Keeper may be the best thing Del Barber has ever done, although we are talking about an artist who has already been nominated for two Junos. A fine album, from a performer at the top of his game, and a great interview – we do hope you’ll stay with us to check it out. As usual, we wrap up the episode with some more of the latest new releases and this time we include great songs from Zachary Lucky, Ian & Sylvia, Don Brownrigg, Madison Galloway, Graham Lindsey, Caroline Spence, Susan Gibson and Lynne Hanson.
