Playful folk duo The Rough & Tumble live life on the road, taking their home – a sixteen foot trailer, with them, from gig to gig, as they tour North America. They’ve just released their first full length album, appropriately titled “We Made Ourselves A Home When We Didn’t Know”. The Rough & Tumble’s Mallory Graham and Scott Tyler join us on Episode 364 of Folk Roots Radio to chat about their music and the new album. We also check out more of the latest new releases including new music from I’m With Her, Emily Mure, Ange Hardy, Onion Honey, The LYNNeS and Laura Cortese & the Dance Cards.
Well, it’s that time of year… time for a very special holiday season edition of Folk Roots Radio. Now, I don’t know about you, but I love Christmas music, I just hate the uninspiring way it gets used in the run up to the holiday… especially if you’re in the mall, or the grocery store or dare I say it, listening to the radio. So here it is, my attempt at some thoughtful and insightful holiday music programming – featuring mostly new self-written songs, and if they’re not original compositions, well let’s just say the artists concerned definitely take them a little off the beaten track. Enjoy! Check out the full playlist below.
