Folk Oasis Episode January 29, 2014

Broadcast on 29-Jan-2014

8:00pm - 10:00pm

Tonight young (21 yrs old) singer-songwriter Connor Roff returned to the CiTR studios to chat about his brand new, debut CD release. Quite the eye-catching cover! He'll be doing the official launch on Jan. 31 at the Media Club, and a trip across the country on VIA Rail not long after that. Catch him when he's in your town!

This week the folk world mourns the loss of one of its great icons and activists, Pete Seeger. In the spirit of his dedication to working with and inspiring the young, I leaned towards that for my musical tribute. Rest in peace, Mr. Seeger.

Thanks for tuning in, and do feel free to drop a line to say hello!

cheers, val
