What's Coming Up?
Plan ahead

The 256th edition of RootsWorld Radio will feature a lot of voices and fiddlers. Yodeling, liturgical singing, Balkan romance, Cypriot poetic polemic, and modern Finnish balladry will be side by side with fiddles from England, Finland and more. We'll toss in a few bass solos, an accordion quintet and a few more things to keep it varied and lively. Artists on the show include Luisa Cottifogli, Monsuier Doumani, James Patrick Gavin, Accordion Samurai, Okra Playground, Peter Stan & Eva Salina, Natasa Mirkovic & Nenad Vasilic, and Emilia Lajunen & Suvi Oskala.

On the 255th RootsWorld Radio, we begin with some original compositions for the Syrian quanun, a traditional Middle Eastern zither. We'll hear from a trio of string artists from Madagascar, Mali and Morocco, vocal and percussion from France, a quartet of artists from India and Sweden who perform what they call Nordic Raga (our Music of the Month selection for February), a Swedish/Norwegian violin duet and finish off with some music from Ireland. Artist on the show include Maya Youseff, 3MA, La Mal Coiffee, Nordic Raga, Mikael Marin & Anon Egeland, and Andy Irvine & Paul Brady.

RootsWorld Radio #254 is heavy on the accordions as we listen to music from Poland, Finland, Belgium, and a quintet of boxes from all over Europe, plus music from Brittany and Canada. Artists include Accordion Samurai, Maria Kalaniemi & Eero Grundstrom, Didier Laloy's Belem & The Mekanics, WoWaKin, Adam Strug, Kapela Maliszów and Little Big Noz.
