It is always such a thrill to know that some of the people that have graced TRADITIONS over the years and, sometimes, were just starting when they came on the program. People like MARY GAUTHIER, PAT WICTOR, RED MOLLY, MODERN MAN,and a bevy more.

A short while back those of you who had tuned in will recall that my guests were a new group :


(pictured here)

They are now, I am delighted to say, progressing and garnering many appearances in the area. Shortly they will be opening for AZTEC TWO STEP at The Minstrel Coffee House in Morristown, The date is June 20.

Rather than put a video of them right here in the dead center as I have done with Kate Wolf I thought it better to give a sample of their work that gives a few samples. If you click on the right side of the screen---they will have replaced the brilliant group The Foremen for a while in the hopes that you will get more familiar with their wonderful harmonies and material. It has to be said that the sound quality may not be the best due to technical recording reasons but, surely, worth a view.

Those of you who know my proclivities on TRADITIONS over the years in presenting artists know full well that there are some wonderful new artists that we are priviliged to present. CHeck the right side of the screen to see an example.

You also know that this page was intended for thoughts on programming, items of interest in the radio programs I host, and some personal things that you might find interesting. I hope you find KATE WOLF as meaningful and as interesting as I do. You will recall that a number of years back I had the delight of having her children as my guests on the program to talk of her life and her work. You will further recall my sentimental attachment to NINA GERBER and her music about Kate's Guitar (Song Title).

Let us now enjoy a few musical moments with the wonderful and sentimental voice of KATE WOLF and Nina Gerber thanks to the wonderful age we now live in---that, sadly, she is no longer a part of. I also know that she is one of the most requested artists on the TRADITIONS program.
