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

Happy Hosting, Happy New Year - Rob Ellen

This week's International Americana Music Show, #1425, features music, music and more music - from 15 intn'l artists

It's a really full show this week as some of the songs are a wee bit short - so I managed to squeeze in 15 of them...and they cover some interesting ground. Dean Owens, from Scotland, sings about the night Johnny Cash played San Quentin; Green Mohair Suits, from Australia, pay homage to a purple camper van; and Crystal Park, from South Africa, weave 16 Bob Dylan song and album titles into a track about an old pub.
