Pat Wictor: Live In WSHU’s Studio A

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

We welcomed back Pat Wictor (after a too-long time of more than four years) to Profiles in Folk for a live chat and performance in WSHU’s Studio A. Pat’s not only a fine singer/songwriter and unique acoustic lap slide guitar player, but also a performer who has finely honed his art. He crafts memorable songs that are steeped in tradition and when he reaches back into his musical song bag for blues, gospel and folk from an earlier time he does so with a reverence and keen knowledge of the music. He is a singular performer who bridges the contemporary and the traditional.

We spent about 80 minutes with Pat in Studio A (with WSHU Chief Engineer Paul Litwinovich at the controls) and then finished up the show with musical selections on which Pat lends his instrumental talents in a supporting role and two selections from Chris Smither, one of his favorite artists.
