Georgian Bay Roots

With your host Jon Farmer

1609969_10154532318180220_5111923560966166563_nEvery 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 week we’re sharing songs on the theme of mental health and Earth Day. May 1-7 is the Canadian Mental Health Association’s Mental Health Awareness week to highlight the issue and supports in our community. Earth Day was last week but it’s never too late to share songs that support this big ole planet of ours.

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