10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters
This was welcome return to Profiles In Folk for Kelly Armor and Dave Sturtevant, friends who last visited our studios in 1998. Theyve been busy in the interim, including a return to Africa for Kelly who did missionary work there many years ago. It also turned into a music field-collecting trip for the duo and during their 75 minutes with us they shared two pieces of the many recordings they made in Tanzania. Dave also showed off his steel-body guitar made by Larry Pogreba (1-406-285-6556) from recycled materials, including a Nash Rambler hubcap! And, of course, Kelly and Dave shared a wide variety of other exotic instruments that are a part of their on-stage signature.
For the final 45 minutes, we marked the birthday anniversary (Jan. 25, 1759) of Robert Burns, Caledonias Bard, who dedicated himself to rescuing from oblivion and neglect hundreds of songs in Scottish tradition. He was one of the first formal collectors of folksong!
