10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters
This show on duets was highlighted by a return visit to WSHU’s studios from Mark Lemaire & Twilight (Mark’s singing partner Cindy van Empel). Mark and Cindy both now hail from the San Francisco Bay area and were making what’s become their annual summer trek to New England, where Mark grew up. They blessed us at “Profiles in Folk” by stopping by for another hour of music and conversation.
We particularly focused on the forthcoming release of their first album as a duo (they’ve only been performing together since 2008); the Kickstarter campaign that helped fund the album; Mark’s songwriting (last year we covered his inventive guitar playing), and what’s happening on the folk scene in California.

The 65-minute visit from Mark and Cindy taped a day before the Profiles airing was sandwiched between selections by other duos from recent albums. My thanks to WSHU Engineer Jeremy Hewitt for engineering the segment. It was the first time he’s worked on Profiles.
