The Wooden Sky - World Cafe Next

The “Fuzz Folk” Of Toronto’s The Wooden Sky
Six albums in we are catching up with the Toronto band The Wooden Sky and making them our World Cafe: Next artist for this week. The band is lead by singer and songwriter Gavin Gardiner and their fine new album is called Let’s Be Ready. The band self-describes their music as “fuzz folk” but “alternative rock” will suffice for us. We will play you a couple of songs and put them in our World Cafe: Next podcast available on our tumblr at Worldcafe.tumblr.com
