For your additional enjoyment from the wonderful world of roots music this month we bring you a selection of clips, videos and features that will be added to throughout the month!
Starting off with the powerful new video, directed by AB Photography, from Newcastle based exponents of chamber folk Bridie and the Arbour "We Talked Again".
Next up thrilling, pulsating, gritty Songhai Blues from young Bamako resident Aminata Wassidje Traore. Got this via the excellent Akwaaba Music website, great for contemporary African sounds.
And finally for this month the fabulous Cajun sound of "The Magnolia Sisters", who play Summertyne Festival, Gateshead on July 19!
