Music From Across The Pond

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

This is a night of English and Celtic music that focuses on English “ex-pats” John Roberts and Tony Barrand and the brand new release from the new Patrick Street lineup of Celtic fame. Both groups are appearing in Connecticut during the week and enjoy large followings here. For good measure, we programmed a few classics from both traditions and selections from Robin Bullock’s new album.
