A Scandinavian-Celtic Mix

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

This is a show that combines Scandinavian and Celtic music and, at times, explores the links between the music as it crosses the North Sea from as long ago as the Viking invasions of the British Isles. Overall, it was to my mind a night of exciting and challenging music, including two cuts featuring the songwriting of Englishman Pete Morton programmed for good measure.
