Christmas Day is the perfect time to celebrate with family and friends, and great music, so we at the home office prepared a family Christmas special full of music that will make you laugh, celebrate, and feel a bit of joy on this blessed day. So to you & yours from me & mine, have a very merry Christmas!
Today we kick things off in the (unorthodox) holiday spirit, before pausing to consider some contenders for the Best of 2016 list. We also pay a long overdue tribute to the late, great Bap Kennedy, and play a bunch of great stuff that we haven't heard in a while!
Tonight we start off with some solid favourites before veering into the holiday spirit (sort of...), talking about the big Rheounion going on in Toronto this weekend, and then swerving back onto the road with some more classics!
Today we look back at some of the winners of last night’s Canadian Folk Music Awards, we help our old friend Michael Johnston celebrate 25 years of music, we play some songs for the season, take a look at the already impressive 2017 Static Roots Festival lineup, and play a few of Big D’s 2016 favourites!
Holy cow, it's December already! Luckily, we can ease into it, and the inevitable Christmas juggernaut, with some great music! We've also got some songs with deeper meaning, and a whole pile of new and old Steel Belted classics!
