Stoke the Folk goes north – our last regional show

Stoke the Folk is having it’s last regional show!  We’re going up North!   There is a very strong roots community in the Yukon, so we’ve included a bunch of those folks in the mix.


And I had the pleasure of Matt visiting our place on Good Friday.  I’ve always wanted Matt to see our mandolins and charango, and he loved playing my mandolin (see pic to the left).   And Matt also got a beautiful new guitar, which he is proudly showing off in the pic to the right.

Tune in Monday April 9 at nine pm Eastern! or locally on 107.9 FM in Ottawa

Here’s our playlist:

    Hi there! Quick question that’s completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My site looks weird when browsing from my iphone4. I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to resolve this issue. If you have any suggestions, please share. Thanks!
