Songs Of The Harvest

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

Autumn’s treating us to a display of quite vibrant colors and chilly nights here in southern New England. The leaves are beginning to float from their branches to the ground. The pumpkins, squash, apples and pears are in their fall abundance. However, a majority of the farm crops have been harvested and we’re celebrating the end of the summer’s harvest on Profiles in Folk. It’s our version of an old-fashioned Harvest Home celebration and a reminder of the eternal cycle of nature and the agrarian ritual.
