Georgian Bay Roots

With your hosts Dylan, Jon, Kailey, & Ted

Every Sunday on CFOS 560 from 4-5pm, Georgian Bay Roots shares some of the best music that’s made in and played in Grey and Bruce Counties with roots music from across Canada and around the world thrown into the mix.

This week’s host, Kailey Jane Hawkins is an aspiring singer songwriter with a love for all things music. As Grey Bruce is home to such a rich community of artists, she’s excited to be part of the Georgian Bay Roots Radio team to help share that richness with the world

On this week’s episode of Georgian Bay Roots we explore music and instruments that highlight the contrast between “light” and “dark”, and showcase the beauty that can be found in both sides.
