Georgian Bay Roots

With your host Jon Farmer

jonfarmerEvery 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 songs about doors, knocking, waiting, home, Georgian Bay, and gambolling dogs. You’ll get a taste of country, gospel, rockin’ folk, and some instrumental music that defies categorization.

If you missed the live show, we will post the episode by 6pm ET.
