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 is the mid-winter blues episode with some classic blues, and a mix of Canadian and local blues to help you get through what can be a cold and dreary time of year. We’ve also got part of a conversation  with Ken Whiteley from Summerfolk last August

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