Religious Expression In Folk Music

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

Each year we mark the Jewish celebration of Passover which recalls the flight of the Israelites from slavery and bondage in Egypt more than 3,000 years ago and the Christian observance of the Passion of Jesus Christ climaxing in the Resurrection. Depending on the calendar, it’s one or two shows. This year it’s one and this is it.
