We’re pleased to share more of the latest new releases with you on Episode 652 of Folk Roots Radio. It always astounds us how much fabulous new music is out there, and how much of it is coming from independent artists. It really is a pleasure to be able to share more of it with you. Join us on this episode as we check out recently received releases from The Unthanks, Esbe, Lady Maisery, James Yorkston with Nina Persson & The Second Hand Orchestra, Mark Sullivan, Trevor Owen, Chris Coole, Hannah Shira Naiman, Windborne, Alex Krawczyk, Adeem the Artist, Sofia Talvik, Mavis Staples with Levon Helm, Dave Gunning, Kelly’s Lot and Dom Flemons. We’re biased but we think it’s a great episode. We’re confident you’ll enjoy it. 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.

We love seasonal music on Folk Roots Radio – what we don’t love is more straight up versions of the same old Christmas songs and carols. Join us on Episode 414 of Folk Roots Radio as we celebrate the season with a selection of music that’s mostly new, independent and definitely interesting. We also include an interview with Chris McKhool, the leader of world music combo, the Sultans Of String, who are taking their “Christmas Caravan” back out on the road this holiday season alongside music from Ian Foster & Nancy Hynes, Rich Krueger, Reg Meuross, Kelly’s Lot, Vi Wickam, Bob Jensen & Tony McManus, Rachael Sage, Mara Levine, Cathy Fink & Marcy Marxer and Eric Gerber. It’s a great episode, and the perfect accompaniment to a glass of your favourite tipple and a mince pie, or two. Check out the full playlist below.
