Caroline Marie Brooks, from Canadian harmony trio Good Lovelies, joins us on Episode 618 of Folk Roots Radio to chat about her first solo album “Everything At The Same Time”, a wonderful recording with a lovely laidback reflective feel to it. It’s a fabulous conversation, and very inspiring. A nice glimpse into what drives an established artist, who has been very successful as part of a group, to step out on their own. We also check out new releases from Forest Sun, David Stone, Serious Child & Andy Ruddy, Dreamers’ Circus, Pat Byrne, John Hiatt with The Jerry Douglas Band and Janis Ian. Check out the full playlist below.
This week’s Folk Roots Radio featured an interview with North-East of England based singer-songwriter Pete Davies. Pete’s latest album “Long Way Home” is one of our favourite albums of the year so far. The fact that the album came to us out of the blue made receiving it all that more special. This week we included a special tribute to the sadly departed “Mother of Modern Folk Music” Jean Ritchie, alongside our mystery theme and some new music.
