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

Featured Artists of the week!! The David Latto Band

When The New Madrids, Perth's masters of Transatlantic Country Soul added the guitar and vocal of Ian Hutchison they hit on the rock edge that has made them one of the best live bands to emerge from Scotland in recent years .

The CD "Through The Heart Of Town", was listed in the R2 Magazines top 3 of 2014 .

They love to break the show down and play acoustic listening rooms too.

Watch out for them at Festivals all over Europe this summer, including the headline spot at our home Festival - Americana Cavalcade at Perth Racecourse which is part of the Gold Cup Weekend - June 6th 2015.

The House Concert Hub went to Folk Alliance International 18 -22 February Kansas to release this fabulous album Vincent features on the cd. ORDER NOW
