Mostly New Folk

This is a show that, for the most part, presents groups or individual performers who have never been heard before on Profiles in Folk. The "other part" is Mike Casey and Cucanandy, who have a concert May 6 at the South Salem (N.Y.) Library, just over the Connecticut border, and May 13 at the Branford Folk Music Society. Both concerts start at 8 p.m.

Of course, there's still one more hook to "new folk" that springs from doing the show for 26 years. For example, Jack Evans has been heard on the show as a member of The Whistlebinkies and The Sevens' Mark Roberts, Liza Constable and guest Chris Turner as members of various bands.
