New albums from Sam Gleaves and Nathaniel Talbot; yet more proof that 2015 has been an excellent year for roots music. Forthcoming releases suggest 2016 is going to be no different: Malcolm Holcombe’s back for starters!
Danny Schmidt and Carrie Elkin join us in the studio for a superb session and chat. New songs from Vancouverite, Ben Rogers, as well as more from the new albums by Peter Case, Elle Osborne and Rita Hosking.
Long (we do mean “long”) awaited new album from Brent Best of Slobberbone, as well as Have Gun Will Travel’s musical take on Shackleton’s expedition to the South Pole – oh, yes, we do high-brow Americana too.
Old Man Luedecke leads a troupe of Canadians right through the show – Sarah MacDougall, Sun Belt and Flophouse Jr follow. Souled American pay tribute to birthday boy, Kris Kristofferson – just don’t tell me how the story ends.
