Liguriani played great set in Club at Celtic Connections. Ipercussonici were very good when they played Womad at Charlton Park a couple of years ago. Fiamma Fumana are fine exponents of the Martin Bennett school of roots music, though it's a while since they were in UK. Strongly agree about Nidi d'Arac, would have loved to have seen them this tour, they had a disappointingly small main-stage crowd for a fine set when at Womad Charlton Park. (More fool the masses.)

Linda Bull's programme "Give 'em the Boot" on citr.ca is a good source and as with all their shows there's a podcast archive. One act I picked up on from this are Sequoia Bisquits, whose eponymous album and a live set are on BandCamp.

I'm coming across lots of interesting stuff thanks to you SOTWsters, thanks again. Linda Bull's radio show is a real mix, including arts news and is aimed at the local community (a fair bit's in Italian). The radio station itself has an eclectic mix of music throughout the week. In some ways it's a bit reminiscent of those early days on Radio London when you could hear Charlie, reggae, country, soul and funk, etc. Hey ho I'm getting nostalgic...
