Live In WSHU’s Studio A: Pierce Campbell

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

Connecticut’s Pierce Campbell is not only a fine singer and songwriter, but also one dynamic fingerstyle guitarist. He displayed all these musical talents during a 75-minue, long overdue return visit to “Profiles in Folk.”

We talked about his new, fifth solo album in 10 years, “Songs of the Sea” and discussed his very active performing schedule (he’s a full-time musician and producer), his career, his return to more traditional folk music and, yes, his guitar playing. Pierce also performs with the Irish group, The Kerry Boys.
