Appearing Soon At A Venue Near You

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

This is one in a continuing, occasional series of "Profiles" totally devoted to artists appearing in WSHU Public Radio's broadcast area. It's a small effort on our part to boost patronage at folk and acoustic shows at a time when ticket sales to concerts and festivals are declining overall with the current economic malaise.

The first hour is devoted to Connecticut's own Podunk Bluegrass Festival in East Hartford, which this year celebrates its 15th anniversary. Caravan of Thieves, with a brand new album in hand, plays the annual Gathering of the Vibes in Bridgeport, Suzanne Vega blesses the Ridgefield Playhouse in early August and the U. K.'s Anthony John Clarke makes a return visit to Long Island for several events, including the 5th Annual Huntington Folk Festival.
