Mostly Celtic — With A Few Departures

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

A mellow night of selections from a batch of recent Celtic recordings, with two departures: David Roth is playing in our region and Laurie MacAllister appeared on Profiles in Folk earlier this year and discussed the imminent release of her new album, which is now out! Audience reaction was unusually strong to Greentrax Records’ “The Clear Stream”, an anthology of Scots guitar music, and for good reason. I highly recommend it.
