We’re all about love on Episode 621 of Folk Roots Radio. We have some straight up love songs in there, alongside looking for love songs and break-up songs – and some songs that take you on a different path all together. The good news is that they are all guaranteed to be schmaltz free! The Rough & Tumble and The Treeline also stop by to tell us about their latest releases. We also feature new music from Bahamas, Clever Hopes, Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, Quote The Raven, Simon Mayor & Hilary James, Mo Kenney, John Pippus, Steve Dawson, Billy Strings and The Bombadils. It’s a fun episode – you won’t want to miss it! Remember, if you like what you hear on Folk Roots Radio… and want to support the artists… don’t just stream their music, BUY their music and then you’ll really make a difference to their income during this difficult time, when it’s really hard to find live show opportunities. Check out the full playlist below.
Rob and Sarah Skinner, who make music together as Red Dirt Skinners, have a much bigger sound than two people should ever be able to produce. They also create music that ticks all the boxes – it can be catchy, and driving, and full of soaring harmonies and fabulous soprano sax solos or they can pull everything back and become incredibly intimate. They join us on Episode 604 of Folk Roots Radio to talk about their great new album “Bear With Us” which has more pop/rock sounds than their previous recordings. Formerly living in the UK, and now happy at home in Canada, it’s a great interview – and Bear With Us is an excellent album. As always, we wrap up the hour with more new music and this time around we hear from Ptarmigan, Cynthia Marchant, John Pippus, Staran, Lynne Hanson and Vivian Leva & Riley Calcagno.
