And Now For Something Completely Different

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

In a departure from our usual traditional-leaning Anglo-American folk fare and contemporary works by singer/songwriters, here’s a whirl into world music and Celtic music with a twist.

The first hour was primarily Gypsy music from Eastern Europe and a set of songs from Iren Lovasz of Hungary and her beautiful voice and song interpretations. The second hour explored Celtic music that takes some strange but lovable turns in its journeys.
