FTB #144 is a "one shot" show where we catch up on some of the Americana and Roots music releases from 2011 that never made it on previous shows for some reason. Heading into the new year with lots of new stuff lined up already means I'm not likely to get back to any of these again artists soon although they are all quite good. Thus, the "one shot"…Continue

A Canadian who hails from the Atlantic coast, Jerry Leger has been a fixture on the Toronto music scene for some while now and Traveling Grey is the fourth album for a young man who is clearly quite a prolific songwriter. Sounding pretty much like Bob Dylan at his most tunefully heartfelt (aroundabout the time of Desire and Blood on…Continue

A great life in music was ended by a heart attack last Thursday, we lost one of the worlds true orginals and I lost a friend.
What you saw was what you got with John, he was as staight as the nights are long at this time of year in Caithness, and when he talked he talked with as much authority as he played his guitar, needless to say in both cases, I was happy to do some listening when in his company.
A child of the 60's he broke all the rules and…Continue

What a wonderful, eclectic way to celebrate the music of Lubbock, Texas legend Buddy Holly on his 75th anniversary. Good to listen to and in lots of cases, dance he changed not only music but also, how teenagers got to express themselves. Like Elvis during his early days it was all so natural. A genial songwriter he…Continue

Nickelback’s music has always brought back memories from my first big outdoor gigs. For two years running during my teenage years, I attended Canada Day concert’s in Halifax, Nova Scotia. I remember a feeling of excitement… and a carefree attitude to the high prices of big gig food!

This album has been sitting around with me for a while, as I struggled to get a handle on it to begin with. I think I had a notion that Cam Penner was one of those heavily bearded rootsy performers who would deliver something raw - lots of foot-stomping and yelping, I thought. Well, by his own account, this self-produced album sees him…Continue

FTB podcast #143 features my favorite music releases for calender year 2011. I hesitate to say "best" releases because it's really just my opinion. There are a few artists and albums that are not included here because I don't have their permission to use their music on the podcast, or I've included their one "podcast-OK" song on a previous FTB show.…Continue
