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

This four track CD EP reflects this. The first two…

Talisco – Run (Roy Music).

Highly popular in Europe, Talisco releases his first album. Whether it’s the dance-tinged pop of Your Wish (used by Google) or the hook-laden The Keys (Toyota), there is something here for most.

Woody Sez Eden Court Inverness live Review

I can't recommend Woody Sez more highly (the Woody Guthrie Story told in words and Music by David Lutken, Wolfe Hogan, Ruth Clark Irons and Eleanor Brunsdon).

David becomes Woody and the audience suspends belief and are taken into his world.… Continue

California Feetwarmers Ireland and Scotland in June

MASTERS of ragtime, Dixieland blues and early swing, The California Feetwarmers are renowned for an earthy depth of character that sets them apart from others who have followed that throwback path to New Orleans, Circa 1920.

Their boisterous on-stage antics are solidly underpinned by playing that is as close to the source as…
