Live In WSHU’s Studio A: Kevin Briody

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

Connecticut singer-songwriter Kevin Briody, a two-time finalist at the Kerrville New Folk Contest, pays a return visit to Profiles in Folk and brings along a copy of his brand new album, Familiar. We spent the first hour talking about his songwriting, his family and the upswing in his young performing career. The new album has a strong family focus and even includes a cut with his father, a Dixieland musician, playing trombone. Kevin will be opening the next night for John Gorka and Brooks Williams at ZooFolk in Bridgeport.

The second hour featured recorded selections from David Massengill, Bill Staines and Kevin Burke, all three of whom are appearing in the area as the fall coffeehouse season opens.

Our thanks once again to Paul Litwinovich, WSHU’s chief engineer and Webmaster, for engineering the show.
