Welcome to FSR our Roots Music Reviewers & Pod/broadcasters Community

If you haven’t hosted a House Concert yet, please make it a new year’s resolution!

Why not invite your favourite independent musician to play for your friends family and his fans in your front room, I’ll be surprised if he/she won’t show up sometime this year and play for you, let me know about it and if The Medicine Show Radio Moose Mobile is loose is near enough we’ll come and broadcast it too. If you would like to help keep the wheels on the Hub and on The Moose become a patron at

Service provider upgrades...


   posting this from a friends computer after my service upgrade crashed. Might not be anything from me for a bit till the boffins get me sorted out. Just read Maurice's review of Levon Helm at The Ryman and I would just add that I gave that album a listen last night, and if that's not musical heaven, I don't know what is.

See y'all soon

Steve Earle may have been making albums for over 25 years but he is showing no sign in slowing up non, or for that matter easing back on his creative verve. I am pleased to hear him here doing less forcing and taking a more organic approach. 

Steeped in traditional music from both sides of the Atlantic, Earle,…

Every now and then you come across an artist who not only makes good records but, consistently. Gene Watson is one of those guys and who if he had hit the country charts a few years earlier then he would have been a bigger star than he became. Such is his relaxed, pure pitched and clear diction…

Peter Bruntnell: Black Mountain UFO   

Peter Bruntnell is one of those musicians I keep hearing great things about but hadn't actually heard any of his music until this new album appeared. I wasn't sure what to expect, but sure as eggs is eggs, it wasn't this beautiful resurrection of very English…

Genticorum: Nagez Rameurs

         The easiest flowing folk music I've heard in some while comes from this Quebecois trio.  Genticorum have three previous albums to their name and have clearly established a wide renown for their recorded music and for their performances. Led by fiddler and foot-stomper Pascal Gemme, the three of them…

Ian McFeron: Summer Nights

Sometimes it's hard to believe how many really talented people are out there under the radar. This is Seattle-based Ian McFeron's sixth album in the last eight years, and it's a really strong piece of work. Recorded in Nashville with producer/guitarist Doug Lancio, thirteen…

Des Horsfall's Kuschty Rye: The Good Gentleman's Tonic         

Kuschty Rye: Des Horsfall claims it means A Good Gentleman but he's lifted it from Ronnie Lane and I can't find any corroboration on that. Maybe Ronnie invented it, and if he did then that's just fine. This album is Des's tribute to Slim Chance era Ronnie Lane and he's gone overboard on the whole…
