A Night Of Scots Music

An entire program of music from Scotland and from a few Scots who have come to America. The program also served as a memorial tribute to journalist and bon vivant James G. Clark of Bridgeport, a dear friend for the past three decades and a supporter of Profiles in Folk. Jim died earlier in the week. It was Jim, along with former Bridgeport alderman and labor journalist Peter Gilmore, who prompted me in the early days of Profiles to initiate a show celebrating Robert Burns' birthday each January. Often, Jim would call up during this program to mildly chide, "More piping, Winters, more piping."
