Episode 304 of Folk Roots Radio features an interview with Julian Taylor, leader of self-described “pilgrims of funk, soul ‘n’ roll” – the Julian Taylor Band, recorded at the Folk Music Ontario conference. We also feature music from the band’s great 2016 double album “Desert Star”. And, as always, we take a look at some of the latest new releases.

This episode features our final two interviews recorded at the 2016 Kingsville Folk Music Festival. Aengus Finnan, the executive director of Folk Alliance International joins us to chat about their mission and annual conference, the world’s largest gathering of the folk industry and community. Matt Warry-Smith and Will Staunton from Union Duke also stop by to chat about the band’s third album “Golden Days”. Photo: Morten Fog.
