We’re pleased to bring you another all-music hour on Episode 592 of Folk Roots Radio. We still can’t get over how much great new music is out there at the moment. Who knew that if artists couldn’t tour, they’d spend all their time in the studio working on great new material? Well, creators gotta create. If you can’t play live then why not stay home and crank out some great new tunes! Join us for new releases from Chris Cleverley, Joy Zimmerman, Glenn Chatten, Laney Lou And The Bird Dogs, Graham Rorie, Serious Child & Andy Ruddy, Dana Sipos, Jackson Grimm, Adrienne Nye, Caroline Marie Brooks (Good Lovelies), Good Lovelies, Alicia Toner, Aasiva, Sarah Burton and Kate Taylor. As always, 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 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.
We’re holding back the interviews again on Episode 565 of Folk Roots Radio to bring you another hour of great new music with some fine Covid times singles thrown into the mix. Musicians and music industry employees have seen their livelihoods severely impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. For that reason, we have chosen to use the Canadian Live Music Association awareness campaign slogan For The Love Of LIVE (#fortheloveoflive) to subtitle this episode. Music helps us all get through tough times. It’s time for us to give back and do what we can to help publicize the issues facing artists and the live music industry, generally, during the current crisis. Join us on this episode for new music from Allison Russell, Mati Haskell (with JK Gulley), John Smith, The Treeline, Seamus Egan, Joy Zimmerman, Lizanne Knott, Larry Folk, Jaime Michaels, Francine Honey, Luke Concannon, The Brother Brothers, Jerry Leger, Justin Rutledge and Keith Goodwin. If you like the artists you hear on this show, 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 impossible to play live shows.
