We’re off to Ireland on Episode 582 of Folk Roots Radio to meet emerging singer-songwriter Colm Gavin. Colm Gavin landed on our radar in 2018 after the release of his excellent second album, 2016’s “A Voice For The Urban Darlings”. He is now getting ready to release a new solo piano E.P., “The 1992 Tapes”. The two new songs that Colm shared with us from that project are quite brilliant. A talented songwriter, it was great to be able to talk to him about his music. As always, we wrap up the episode with more new releases, and this time around we hear from A Choir Of Ghosts, Bryce Thomas, String Bone, Bùmarang, the august arrival, Martha Wainwright, Olivia Castriota and Reid Zoé. Check out the full playlist below.
This edition of Folk Roots Radio is all about the music. No interviews, just a great selection of the new music that we’ve received recently.
This week’s Folk Roots Radio featured another interview recorded at the Folk Music Ontario conference this past October. On this episode we talk to Owen Sound based folk, pop and jazz singer Coco Love Alcorn about her music and forthcoming album ‘The Spirit Sessions’. It was a fantastic interview, and as expected, lots of fun. You can listen to the interview on the website here. As usual, there was lots of new music on the show, alongside our mystery theme and guilty pleasure.
