We’re all about love on Episode 621 of Folk Roots Radio. We have some straight up love songs in there, alongside looking for love songs and break-up songs – and some songs that take you on a different path all together. The good news is that they are all guaranteed to be schmaltz free! The Rough & Tumble and The Treeline also stop by to tell us about their latest releases. We also feature new music from Bahamas, Clever Hopes, Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, Quote The Raven, Simon Mayor & Hilary James, Mo Kenney, John Pippus, Steve Dawson, Billy Strings and The Bombadils. It’s a fun episode – you won’t want to miss it! Remember, if you like what you hear on Folk Roots Radio… and want to support the artists… don’t just stream their music, BUY their music and then you’ll really make a difference to their income during this difficult time, when it’s really hard to find live show opportunities.
