Live In WSHU’s Studio A: Dan Bonis, Open Book & Ina May Wool

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

Old friends, fine music. We welcomed back to Profiles in Folk for return visits, Michelle Rubin and Rick Gedney, the duo known as Open Book from Westchester County; New York singer/songwriter Ina May Wool, and Connecticut’s own multi-instrumentalist Dan Bonis. Listeners (and host Steve Winters) enjoyed more than two hours of music and conversation with the four musicians that included an impromptu singing of “Happy Birthday” for WSHU Chief Engineer Paul Litwinovich, the “man behind the glass” mixing the evening’s sound. We won’t tell you, however, what birthday he was marking! During the evening, New Haven guitarist Robert Messore stopped in to play a bit of percussion and some “air bass.”
