Now in its 31st year on CiTR, The Saturday Edge is my personal guide to world & roots music, with African, Latin and European music in the first half, followed by Celtic, Blues, Songwriters, Cajun and whatever else fits!
Far End Of Summer
Songs to mark the change of seasons, new releases from Yorkshire's Magpies and Kate Rusby, and many more
Folk on the Rocks?
New music from Shooglenifty, Canadian cellist Ofra Harnoy, Scandinavian trio Dreamers' Circus, English singer Fay Hield and more. Plus some folkie covers of rock and pop classics, and a fairly eclectic mixture all round, really.
It's OK to feel sad
New releases inspired by the latest issue of Songlines magazine, a great new CD from Sarah Jarosz, blues magic from Musselwhite & co., and some songs of hope at the end.
Standing On The Moon: omens, defiance, and love
New releases by Canada's Twin Flames, Italy's Beppe Gambetta, America's Molly Tuttle, and Cape Breton's Hauler. Plus a small tribute to Justin Townes Earle. Some sombre sounds and a few songs of hope, love and defiance. Finished up with a great new cover of Which Side Are You On for Labour Day
Tonder Festival Memories
Tribute to Denmark's Tonder Festival - which should have been happening this weekend. Lots of Scandinavian fiddles and voices, and lots of Canadians (very popular at Tonder down the years). Some personal reminiscences from that event in 2016 and 2019 - and RIPs to Balla Sidibe (Orchestra Baobab) and Justin Townes Earle
Memories of Edmonton Folk Fest Too
Part Two of my favourite reminiscences from the Edmonton Folk Music Festival.

A very good podcast if you're interested in roots, folk, and world music in general. 4 hours a week on top of that and you've got yourself a very good podcast.
