We’re pleased to bring you another great Covid Times interview on Episode 581 of Folk Roots Radio. One of our favourite performers, pop/rock singer-songwriter Sarah Smith joins us to chat about how, like many musicians, her life and career have been turned completely upside down by the ongoing health crisis. Despite the loss of her live work, Sarah has been keeping herself busy engaging her fans by Livestream and working on new songs. She’s also settling into a new home on Pender Island in British Columbia. It’s a really insightful interview – we hope you’ll stay with us to check it out. As always, we wrap up the episode with new music, and this time around it’s all by female artists and female lead bands. Join us for new releases from Sarah Jarosz, Allison Russell, For Lua, Amythyst Kiah, Katie McNally Trio, Geneviève Racette, AV (Ann Vriend), Annabelle Chvostek and Good Lovelies. Check out the full playlist below.
