10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters
We were joined for the first hour by singer-songwriter Lys Guillorn of Connecticut, who’s creating quite a buzz at venues in the region and is a songwriter to watch in the future. Ryan Blessey accompanied her.
Lys is a purveyor of a music that’s not easy to define, drawing on many influences from rock, folk, alt-country and psychedelia (she describes it at times as “avante-psych-twang/clinical blues?”). But her songwriting is what really stands out and it’s showcased nicely on her self-titled debut album. She can be reached at www.lysguillorn.com We spent the hour discussing her musical influences, her incipient career and her songwriting.
In contrast, the second hour featured recorded works by long established master performers who will be performing in our broadcast area this weekend, namely Tom Paxton, the Canadian trio Finest Kind and Richard Shindell.
