Last week host Colin MacDonald premiered ‘The Drought’ across the pond on release day, adding it to the Folkal Point set list.

The programme is also re-transmitted (globally!) online three times a week on its Essential Channel by Blues and Roots Radio from Canada.

You can catch the replay Monday, March 1st at 8am on Blues & Roots Radio.
