  • 8/14/2017 New Folk & Trad Blog

  • 6/27/2017 Spotify Playlists, More Airplay, and a Review

    • I have created a few Spotify playlists if you would like to know what I like to listen to; one for Modern Folk, one for Trad/Old Folk songs, and one for Irish/Celtic and American Trad Tunes. Please follow those playlists and if you haven’t already, follow me as an artist on Spotify. In other news, Acoustic Routes radio show in Wales played The Ploughboy on yesterday’s show if you want to hear the show it will re-air on Blues and Roots radio Thursday at 11 AM PST. And in the category of “be careful what you wish for”, Lonesome City got a somewhat lukewarm review from Folking.com, but I think Oscar Wilde had it right with this quote from Dorian Grey “There is only one thing in life worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about.”
