Music Podcasts

Sounds Atlantic is a podcast heard weekly that is devoted to artists from Atlantic Canada who perform roots and acoustic based music (i.e., traditional, folk, old-time, “Canadiana”/”Americana”, bluegrass, etc.). Atlantic Canadian artists describe it this way: Anita Best (trad Newfoundland singer, folk historian and Order of Canada member) refers to this podcast as "the best show for down-home music in all of Canada"... Wayne Chaulk ("Buddy Wassisname and the Other Fellers") says "Ron's got to be good right - he's got Newfoundland blood!)...and, Newfoundland and Labrador singer-songwriter Matthew Byrne (solo performer and lead singer/bouzouki player for CBC "Q" host Tom Power's band "The Dardanelles") says "If you're a fan of great folk and traditional music, you'll find it here, where Ron is dusting off old gems and showcasing what's new and exciting in East Coast folk!"
