Says our host, "The Greenhouse House Concert series seeks to grow community around live music while offering artists a place to recharge. We built the space to start paying back the joy that music has brought to our lives over the years. We bring in attentive and enthusiastic audiences and emphasize the contribution that artists make to our lives. The focus of a Greenhouse concert is the music, while it is playing, and our friends and neighbors during the breaks and before / after concerts."

For more than thirty years, the Ginkgo Coffeehouse has been a place to get intimate with folk music. Whether national artists like Claudia Schmidt, Cliff Eberhart, or Bob Franke, local titans such as Dakota Dave Hull, or the young kids and old-timers at the twice-monthly Open Stage, the Ginkgo has hosted them all! Serving great coffee, wonderful soups, sandwiches and baked goods, you can get a meal with your show. It has a great ambience and a fine PA, a built-in stage.

What's a "house concert", you ask? Pretty much what it sounds like: a concert in someone's home. the most intimate way to hear music. Here's a short video that describes the concept.

Valley Folk presents "Something Old, Something New". a concert of multiple performers featuring Liz Simmons (of Low Lily), James Gordon (Founding member of Tamarack), and me (I fall into the "old" category less because of my age than due to the fact that I've played the venue in the past.), and introducing Kim Wallach (of The Short Sisters) and Wendy Grossman .

Tickets: Free


https://boundforglory.org/celebration/
For 57 years, Bound for Glory has been a staple of the folk scene in the Northeast. Host Phil Shapiro presented these concerts from the Cornell campus in Ithaca on Sunday nights before a live audience and broadcast live on WVBR radio. The lineup included such luminaries as Kate Wolf, David Mallett, Utah Phillips, Bill Staines, Anne Hills, Lou and Peter Berryman...and me. But alas, the COVID pandemic, and Phil's failing health put a sunset to this venerable venue. Now past performers from BFG's long history gather to celebrate these past 57 years, and to thank Phil for half a century of service. The full list of participants in this celebration is too long to enumrate here. Go to the website. This will be one helluva show.

Cadenza is a tastefully decorated, wonderful listening room with well spaced, comfortable table seating, great acoustics and a premium sound system. The beverages and food are of high quality. But while some venues provide food and drink with music on the side, Cadenza does it the other way around. I will be splitting the bill with the wonderful songwriter, Carole Wise

This show will also be live-streamed. To view the show, visit Cadenza's FaceBook Page at 7:00 PM Eastern time.
