leave a comment »

***To all who subscribe to this blog via feed or blog notification I apologize if you saw that there was a new post (which there was) but then it suddenly disappeared. I had to change this post to unpublished as I had to troubleshoot an issue with the audio file (I had recorded it in a higher bit rate and Wordpress wasn’t detecting the file as a result). I have it all sorted now and this post is back in action. Sorry about the false start everyone.***

Amazingly enough in the flurry of all that has been going on in my life I still managed to discover some new (to me) Kiwi music. 

I received Woolshed Sessions a few weeks ago thanks my trusty co-host and most excellent friend, Ian Henderson. As a result I have been in a folky state of mind so I went on a treasure hunt for some really good New Zealand folk music.

I already had a few folks on my MySpace friends list – Tim Beals (and his sister Holly) aka Ashes of August, Shaun K. Anderson and Jess Chambers to name a few. One of the great things about MySpace (yes there are great things about MySpace!) is that your friends have other friends, and they have friends,  ad infinitum. So yes, I found other folk artists through the ones I already had on my list. (Again that great thing about MySpace.)

So I contacted a few folks on MySpace and asked if they would mind sending me a song or two for the podcast. They graciously provided me with songs and as a result they are featured on this podcast. I am very appreciative of their complying with my request (as you will be once you hear their lovely music).

As you listen in (either by streaming here or downloading from iTunes) have a look at their pages. I have linked to them below.

Oh also, an interesting side note, it just so happens that all of these artists are based in Wellington. It didn’t even occur to me until after I had put the playlist together. So yea, Welly seems to be the place to be for whatever you are hankerin’ for musically.

MySpace pages for all the artists featured in this podcast.

Without further ado I give you the KbP folkcast.




Due to bandwidth limits I can only offer the free download via this blog for one week. However all archived podcasts are available at iTunes and are of course free.
