Georgian Bay Roots
With your host Jon Farmer
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. Host, Jon Farmer, brings a musician’s ear and the heart of a fan to the airwaves with stories about performers and news about upcoming shows and releases. Tune in to hear some of your favourite acts and new bands that you didn’t know you loved.
This episode features a whole lot of songs about, inspired by, and that mention provinces. We jump genres from folk and traditional, to blues and reggae, with some danceable pop and rock thrown in for good measure. Listen closely for news about upcoming shows too.
