Session with Po' Girl

Mary Ann Kennedy with new tracks from across the globe, plus Canadian roots band Po' Girl in a studio session.

Canadian roots music has never had it so good, and Po' Girl are right at the centre of this flourishing scene, based as they are in Montreal and Toronto. They call their style 'urban roots' and it has elements of folk, country and jazz. Po' Girl are Allison Russell and Awna Teixeira, both singers and multi-instrumentalists, joined by Mikey 'Lightning' August on vocals, drums and keys and Chris Merrill on electric bass.
