LI Concert Notes – # 8 9/29/06

From the chemical water of New York ’s dirty harbor. To the Rock of Gibraltar at the end of the World. Amaze me, America . Save me from Armageddon high road to heaven.” – Girlyman

Here’s some great Live Music on LI.

Saturday and Sunday, 9/30-10/1 – Buddy Merriam and Backroads. 1-5 PM. Palmer Vineyards. Sound Av, Aquebogue

Monday, 10/2 – Not exactly live, but…The first show begins Monday — October 2, 2006
peacethroughmusiccable@hotmail.com Each of us has just been granted our own 30 minute cable tv show —– Jean’s show is Just Peace! Cablevision Ch 20 Monday – 3:30 – 4:00. Robert’s show is Peace and Justice Cablevision Ch 20 Tuesday – 7:30 – 8:00. We need to submit VCR/VHS or Mini-DV tapes to Cablevision Woodbury to be televised each week during these half hour time slots—–Our intention is to present video recordings of local musicians who would like to have their music aired on cable TV as a public service and for additional exposure of their music, as part of the program material that we will be presenting.

It is the music of our local musicians that helps us to cope with, balance out and reduce the stress in our daily lives. Their music can soothe, stimulate, tranquilize, energize, empathize, motivate, celebrate……..Whatever our individual needs are, we can always appreciate and enjoy the fine and diverse talents of our local musicians on Long Island. Our program agenda will also include events and activities that occur on Long Island
that promote a healthy socio-multicultural environment.

We welcome local musicians who find the premise of our shows appealing to provide us with a tape of their music for public viewing. (We do share our material between our shows) Please contact us at peacethroughmusiccable@hotmail.com
or peaceandjusticeli@hotmail.com We have some equipment for editing and can do some recording. We also welcome non-musicians on Long Island to submit information and videos of related events.

Friday, 10/6 – Cosy Sheridan . 8 PM. Cosy Sheridan and her wryly insightful songs have been showcased everywhere from Carnegie Hall to ‘The Dr. Demento Show’. In her new CD on Waterbug Records, Live At CedarHouse, audiences everywhere can get a taste of Cosy’s live performances and see why she’s been called “one of the era’s finest and most thoughtful singer/songwriters” and why Acoustic Guitar Magazine wrote, “If I were going to throw an all-girl dinner party at which I wanted to laugh and cry from the hors d’oeuvres to the chocolate pudding, Cosy Sheridan is the first woman I’d invite.”

She first appeared on the national folk scene in 1992 when she won the songwriting contests at the Kerrville Folk Festival and the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, and released her critically acclaimed CD “Quietly Led” on Waterbug Records. Folk Music Quarterly wrote: “When she’s accepting her Grammy, we can say we knew her when.”

Since then she’s released 5 more CDs, and written a one-woman-show (and accompanying CD) entitled “The Pomegranate Seed – An Exploration of Appetite, Body-Image and Myth in Modern Culture.” She recently composed a song-cycle for best-selling author Robert Fulghum’s new book Third Wish – which has been at the top of the bestseller list in the Czech Republic since last year. Two of the songs from that project have been recorded on her new live CD. http://www.cosysheridan.com/

TR Ritchie, an accomplished solo performer and songwriter will be accompanying Sheridan on bass. Delicious homemade refreshments are available during intermission.

Saturday, 10/7 – Garnet Rogers . 7:30 PM. FMSH First Saturday Concert. Congregational Church, Centerport. Garnet Rogers has established himself as one of the major talents of our time. Hailed as a charismatic performer and singer, Garnet is a man with a powerful physical presence – close to six and a half feet tall – with a voice to match. With his smooth, dark baritone, his incredible range, and thoughtful, dramatic phrasing, Garnet is widely considered by fans and critics alike to be one of the finest singers anywhere. His music, like the man himself, is literate, passionate, highly sensitive, and deeply purposeful. Cinematic in detail, his songs give expression to the unspoken vocabulary of the heart. An optimist at heart, Garnet sings extraordinary songs about people who are not obvious heroes and of the small victories of the everyday. As memorable as his songs, his over-the-top humor and lightning-quick wit moves his audience from tears to laughter and back again.

Since leaving high school, Garnet was on the road as a full-time working musician with his older brother, the legendary Stan Rogers. Together, they formed what has come to be accepted as one of the most influential acts in North American folk music. Now on his own, Garnet Rogers is capable of awe-inspiring and unpredictable stuff – and that includes more than just music. Come see what that means. For info: 631-425-2925. www.fmshny.org

He is joined by Dave Lambert and Chas Cronk, both members of The Strawbs line-up on their classic albums, “Hero and Heroine” and “Ghosts”, in this acoustic trio.

Strawbs fans will recall “Lay Down,” “Part of the Union,” “Shine on Brightly” and “Benedictus” as just a few of their well-known singles that spent over fifty two weeks on the Billboard charts as The Strawbs toured with the likes of Santana, The Eagles, King Crimson, and Frank Zappa. The Strawbs present their classics, as well as new material, with passion and precision harnessing the power of their electric incarnation in an acoustic setting. Following a recent performance at The Edmonton Folk Festival, the Edmonton Sun proclaimed that “hearing the brilliant Strawbs was like a tutorial in UK folk music from the past 40 years.” Admission to this show is $35.00 with a student ticket of $30.00.
