10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters
This is a simple program — just a little of this and a little of that. I started off with Alison Krauss and Union Station from 10 years ago, midway through her present 20-year recorded career that began in 1987 at 14 years old. It was a teaser for a “program within a program” based on her new album that I’ll be airing as part of the June 22 Profiles in Folk when we’re on vacation.
Then there are three new artistic successes from Rani Arbo & Daisy Mayhem, Ricky Skaggs and Bruce Hornsby, and Mark Knopfler and Emmylou Harris. That was followed by Les Yeux Noirs from France. The group will be one of the folk music acts appearing at New Haven’s Arts and Ideas festival that begins its three-week run on June 9. The night closed with a quiet piece from Notorious (Larry Unger & Eden MacAdam-Somer).
