We have another hour of the great new releases to share with you on Episode 625 of Folk Roots Radio. Join us for new music from Jane Mathew, Big Little Lions, Sam Weber, Graham Ko, Max Allard, HuDost, Ben Sures, Keb’ Mo’, Jake Blount, The Pine Hearts, Bryan McPherson and Lynne Hanson. We wrap things up with three songs from folk singer Norma Waterson who sadly passed away recently, and was widely regarded as English folk royalty for her beautiful voice, and work with family bands The Watersons and Waterson: Carthy. 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.

Alberta based storytelling singer-songwriter Matt Patershuk joins us on Episode 622 of Folk Roots Radio to chat about his latest album, “An Honest Effort”, which tells stories of people who are trying to make a go of it, despite life’s challenges – and who are not going to give up just because things get difficult. It’s a great album, and a fun conversation with a fine songwriter who writes songs that just can’t help but draw you in. As always, we wrap up the episode with more of the latest new releases and this time around we hear from Grace Morrison, Tim O’Brien, Jackson Grimm, Bryan McPherson, The Accidentals, Jessica Pearson & The East Wind, The Weather Station, Steve Poltz and The Pine Hearts.
