Welcome to the Just Plain Folk show!
Great World and Local Folk music, past and present, with a special emphasis on the NE Ohio folk music scene. Enjoy interviews with featured solo artists and Bands interspersed with their songs, and songs by other artists, new and old.
Featured Artists: Joe Rollin Porter New!
“Joe’s fingerstyle acoustic guitar playing and vocals transcend genre and style, viscerally connecting with music lovers of widely diverging tastes. His live performance can bring a room full of loud distracted drinkers to a hushed silence, hanging on every note. The music primarily consists of Joe’s own arrangements of traditional American folk songs, with a dose of early rural blues and an occasional dash of Celtic flavor as well. The end product is truly unique.”
Featured Artists: Otis Blossom New!
Otis Blossom has been singing forgotten songs from the 50′s to the present for many years. He is a member of the Excitable Boys and leads his family band called the Otis Blossom Express. He will be appearing in the December 8th Mountain Rose Concert with Joe Rollin Porter.
Featured Artist: Eric Oswald New!
Eric Oswald is an Akron-based performer doing a mix of original and cover material in the rock, folk and blues genres.
Featured Artist: Smokin’ Fez Monkeys
“The Smokin Fez Monkeys is a modern jug band that puts the fun back into music again. They play a wacky mixture of songs and tunes from several decades ago, mixed in with a number of snappy original ones written by a few of the band members. There are more than a few surprises along the way. It’s a sort of a ragtime-cartoon-Vaudeville-circus-hobo-gypsy-jazz thing.”
When we rotate out a show and add a new show, the playlist will be unavailable for a few minutes. Doesn’t take long, though, so check back if you get that message on the player.
