We’re pleased to bring you another all music episode on Episode 651 of Folk Roots Radio with a mix that takes us to the UK, the US and Sweden alongside our regular look at some new releases from Canadian artists. This time around we check out new music from Hansan, James Yorkston with Nina Persson & The Second Hand Orchestra, Valerie June, The Lone Bellow, Rory Matheson & Graham Rorie, The Bombadils, Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen, JD Edwards, Abe Drennan , Skinny Dyck, Adeem the Artist, Dieter van der Westen Band, Angelique Francis and Kerri Powers. Enjoy! Remember, If you like the artists you hear on this show and want to support them, don’t just stream their music – BUY their music, and then you’ll really make a difference to their income at a time when it is becoming much more difficult to make a living as a musician. Check out the full playlist below.
We’re all about the music on Episode 320 of Folk Roots Radio as we catch up on some of the great new music we’ve received recently. Among the new and upcoming releases we check out is the third album from highly rated roots singer-songwriter Sarah Jane Scouten, and Rescue Me!, a great new compilation that’s all about cats and dogs, and the people that love them. (Disclaimer: we’re cat people so we play cat songs on this episode, though the dog songs are pretty good too!). Listen to the episode and check out the playlist below.
On Episode 319 of Folk Roots Radio, we’re back at the Folk Music Ontario conference for another in our interview/mini-session series Folk Roots Radio at FMO. Country roots singer-songwriter Bobby Dove joins us to chat about her music and play a couple of songs from her great debut album “Thunderchild” live. As always, we also check out more of the latest new releases. Check out the full playlist below.
Folk Roots Radio on September 27 (Episode 165) featured one of our best recent editions, our end of the festival season show from August 30 2014. Unfortunately I was struck down with a virus on the way back from a short family break to Florida. That will teach me to think about taking a holiday!
