Essentially English

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

Here’s an entire night devoted to performers from England — old and new, famous and waiting in the wings to be discovered. A good part of first hour is devoted to a thumbnail sketch of Ashley Hutchings and the progressive stages of his Albion Country Band. And, of course, you can’t program a show of British folk music without a generous nod to England’s First Family of Folk: Martin Carthy, Norma Waterson and daughter Eliza Carthy. Fine music.
