Program Title: Folk Roots Radio Episode 523: feat. Ol Billy Bob Boy & More New Releases
Description: Cornerbrook NF based singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Ol Billy Bob Boy joins us on Episode 523 of Folk Roots Radio to chat about his debut album "Sweltering Sun", which blends traditional country and bluegrass music together with some tongue in cheek humour and stories inspired by life in Newfoundland and beyond. You may not recognize the name Ol Billy Bob Boy, but as Bill Simms he's performed on upright bass with loads of other folk musicians. Now, with a new on-stage persona, he’s stepping out on his own with a great debut album. We also check out more of the latest new releases, and this time around we hear from The Avenoir Project, Zaac Pick, ConChie, Turkeyfoot, Vi Wickam & Paul Anastasio, Gretchen Peters and The Treeline. Enjoy!
