Flyinshoes Review

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

The International Americana Music Show, #1416, includes Red Pine Timber Co., Hatful of Rain, Ags Connolly & Marlon Williams

Also, plenty of other great international artists...

The International Americana Music Show, #1415, includes Lonnie Donegan, The Bevvy Sisters, The Black Feathers and Whitehorse

The show starts this week with the song that many credit as being the catalyst for the whole Americana genre - and goes on to include new music by Mathias Lilja from Sweden, The Bevvy Sisters, from Scotland and Polly and The Billets Doux, from England.
