Join us on Episode 640 of Folk Roots Radio for another fine selection of songs that sound just so good together. This time around we check out new music from Michael Logen & Amy Stroup, Durham County Poets, The Divine Comedy, The Montgomery Street Band, Basset, Moonfruits, Jasmine (feat. Victor Hernández), The Woods, Madison Violet, woe11er, Sons Of The Never Wrong, Oysterband and Pat Chessell. We wrap things up with a fabulous live version of “’til It’s Gone” from Allison Russell and her music and life partner JT Nero as fabulous folk/Americana duo Birds of Chicago. 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.
Guelph-based storyteller Brad Woods is the featured performer for Fourth Friday at the Guelph Civic Museum on Friday January 22. As on every Fourth Friday, general admission to the museum is free after 5 p.m. and the free show runs from 7-9 p.m. Brad has just released his latest storytelling album “The Woods”, dedicated to his parents and featuring his brother Greg on percussion. The album was recorded live at a house concert in Guelph by Phil Cottrell and Tim Alberts. We caught up with Brad at home in Guelph to chat about the new album. Photo credit: Ken Meats RBP.
