Live In WSHU's Studio A: John Whelan & Pete Morton
What a treat. Two hours of live music. For the first hour, we welcomed
back to Profiles in Folk, seven-time all-Ireland button accordionist John
Whelan who will be celebrating his 30th year in music this month. In the
second hour, Pete Morton of England made his first visit to the show in
advance of an appearance at the nearby Branford Folk Music Society's
Trinity Coffeehouse. For the transition, John and Pete teamed up for an
on-air duo treatment of Pete's "Another Train."
It was a fabulous night of live music. Our sincere thanks once again to
WSHU/WSUF Chief Engineer Paul Litwinowich who handled the sound for the two

For the first 60 minutes, we chatted with John about his three decades in
music and an upcoming 30th anniversary concert in Milford. During the hour,
John played four medleys of diverse (mostly traditional) tunes, but in true
Irish music form could remember the name of only one, "From The Heart."
