Solo Soiree

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

Many new releases from bands and ensembles filled the last edition of Profiles, so logic would perhaps dictate that this program feature mostly new releases from solo artists (some obviously with accompanists). What next? Programs on duos, trios, quartets? Been there, done that. Enjoy this one and try to pick out the few threads that are sewn in from set to set.

In a bittersweet note, Maine artist Gordon Bok recently announced that he plans to stop regular touring and only perform occasional concerts. One last chance to hear him live comes Saturday night at the Branford Folk Music Society, situated in our broadcast area. There’s a set of songs from older albums to offer you a taste of Gordon’s fine musical talents.
