Folk Oasis Episode August 13, 2014

Broadcast on 13-Aug-2014

8:00pm - 10:00pm

Welcome to tonight's edition of Folk Oasis, which comes during a turbulent news week. Featured festival tonight: Salmon Arm Roots & Blues Festival. Beautiful little town, great music.
I also chatted with Eden Oliver of Victoria folk group West My Friend, about their upcoming "Bikes, Barns & Beers" tour. Sounds like fun!
Also in tonight's mix: a musical tribute to baseball's
Tom Henke (in the crowd at Nat Bailey Stadium last night) and a farewell to the dearly loved Robin Williams.
Thanks so much for listening, and be kind to yourselves this weekend, won't you?

hugs, val
