10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters
It’s another invasion from Long Island, live in WSHU’s Studio A! We welcomed bluesman Little Toby Walker and singer/songwriters James O’Malley and Bob Wescott to “Profiles in Folk” for two hours of fine music and conversation. It was another of our shows that put the spotlight on Long Island artists.
For James O’Malley it was a return visit to “Profiles in Folk” to display his artistry. He was with us in December 2003 with another group of Long Islanders. Since then, he’s released a wonderful new CD, “If Only In My Dreams.” You can contact him at www.jamesomalley.org
Little Toby Walker is a premier blues artist who was the winner in 2002 of the prestigious International Blues Challenge Award. He, too, has just released a new album, “Live At The Bottleneck”. You can reach him at www.littletobywalker.com
Bob Wescott is a marvelous fingerstyle guitarist and singer/songwriter who is something of an icon on the Long Island folk and acoustic music scene. Like James, he’s been making folk music since the late 1960s. His albums include “Rollin’ Along” and the all-instrumental “Wherever You Go”. He can be reached by e-mail
Amy Tuttle, Bob’s wife, also joined us in the studio for part of the discussion. She’s the vice president of the Folk Music Society of Huntington and talked about the society and the Long Island Music Hall of Fame www.limusichalloffame.org .
