We’re holding back the interviews again on Episode 627 of Folk Roots Radio to bring you another selection of great new releases, and most of them are from independent artists. This time around we feature Eric Anders and Mark O’Bitz, The Breath, Declan O’Rourke, Amanda Anne Platt & The Honeycutters, Old Blind Dogs, Bob Stark, Daughter Of The Moon, Stella Prince, Matt Andersen, Claire Lynch, William Prince & Serena Ryder, Harley Kimbro Lewis, Just A Season and HOROJO Trio. 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 live show opportunities are harder to come by. Check out the full playlist below.
Raine Hamilton (they/them) joins us on Episode 619 of Folk Roots Radio to chat about their new concept album “Brave Land”, a chamber-folk recording that speaks to both courage and wisdom, inspired by a deep connection to the earth through the mountainous landscapes they have encountered while out on the road. It’s a fascinating conversation about a really interesting album. We wrap up the rest of the episode with new releases from Sarah Jarosz, Billy Strings, Malcolm McWatt, Old Blind Dogs, Over The Moon, Eliza Gilkyson and Rhiannon Giddens (with Francesco Turrisi). Check out the full playlist below.
