Summer 2007 Long Island Folk Music Schedule 8/9/07

Dear Folk Music Fans,

Here is another Summer 2007 Schedule. I pray that I have not missed listing too many Folk Music events. Each Governmental body has summer concerts, often free. Check your Town or Village, and if they don’t have Folk Music on the calendar, ask them about getting some next year. Don’t forget IMAC, Land Mark on Main St; The Boulton Center, Patchogue Theater; Planting Fields, Long Island Maritime Museum, LITMA & The Stony Brook Museum etc. Thank you for supporting The Song Box, Our Times Coffeehouse and Long Island Folk Music.

Yours truly,
Richard de Bruin

“Why do you look at the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Brother, let me take out the speck that is in your eye,’ when you yourself do not see the log that is in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take out the speck that is in your brother’s eye.” Luke 6:41-42
