Different Strokes From Different Folks

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

While this show's underlying focus was largely on new album releases, it also demonstrated the many branches that sprout from the folk and acoustic music tree. To wit, traditional Anglo-American balladry with a Lebanese lilt, new young ensembles that are as comfortable with old time Appalachian string band music as Neil Young, a Grammy nominated album by the venerable Jackson Browne and David Lindley, extraordinary songwriting, and two new albums that focus on the role of women in folk song and American history.
