Mark Lemaire & Twilight Live In WSHU’s Studio A

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

I welcomed back for their third consecutive summer appearance on “Profiles in Folk,” Mark Lemaire and Twilight (Twilight being Cindy van Empel). They hail from the San Francisco Bay area and were making their annual visit to the East Coast to visit family and friends and perform a short tour of intimate concerts.

Their music features Mark’s exquisite and sensitive guitar playing, their sophisticated original songs and arrangements and plenty of heavenly harmonies. They graced us with their music at a taping two days before this program aired.

Two events made this year’s visit to WSHU Public Radio extra special: One, Mark and Cindy had just gotten married in Vermont the previous Friday in a surprise wedding for family and close friends and, two, this year they carried with them their first album together as Mark Lemaire & Twilight entitled "Home Isn't Home". Mark had previously two solo albums.

Music from other duos in the opening and closing half hours complemented the “Live In Studio A” visit.

Thanks still once again to WSHU Chief Engineer Paul Litwinovich for mixing the studio sound and final editing for this program.
