WHAT I CALL Roots Music TODAY...
What I call Roots Music today, my folks would have called Folk Music. Music derived or influenced by one culture or another and performed primarily on acoustic instruments.
Rootsy, organic, warm and inventive. That’s how I would describe contemporary Roots Music. Bluegrass, Old-time, Gospel, Americana, Canadiana, Cajun, Latin, Caribbean, there’s so much to explore and adapt. Such a broad pallet to draw influence and inspiration from.
I love to introduce those colours into my music when I can.
