The Song Box Eighth Season! This month in Seaford on the same program:  Old Friends (Judith Zweiman & Tom Romeo) World musician Chris Merwin 


Old Friends (Judith Zweiman & Tom Romeo) Old Friends Tom Romeo and Judith Zweiman have survived the swinging 60’s, the confused ’70’s, the self involved 80’s, the optimistic 90’s, the Oh-Oh’s of the 21st Century, and they have lived to tell the tales and sing the songs … SO NOW, THAT’S WHAT THEY DO!

Tom Romeo

Tom Romeo has been charming audiences with his unique performances of traditional, contemporary and original stories and poems since the mid ‘70’s. He has appeared at colleges, libraries and festivals, performing as a solo artist and as a member of the Long Island Poetry Collective, the Performance Poets Association, and the Long Island Poetry Repertory Theater.  Tom’s work has appeared in a variety of publications including Creations Magazine., Process (published by the Long Island Poetry Collective), the Performance Poets Association Anthologies, and a collection of his poems entitled Memorial Day.

Judith Zweiman

Judith Zweiman has been an active part of the Long Island music scene since the 1970’s. She has performed and recorded with a legion of singer-songwriters such as Christine Lavin* and Martha Trachtenberg. A former facility member of The Guitar Workshop of Roslyn Heights, Judith later became a fixture in the Greenwich Village songwriters scene of the ’80’s. Judith Zweiman has recorded numerous tunes for Fast Folk Magazine. Her song, “Heart on Ice” was covered by Shawn Colvin and Lucy Kaplansky. Her solo CD release is entitled Look at the Moon. Her poetry and writing have been published in Creations Magazine, the Performing Poets Association Anthologies, and Arcanum.

World musician Chris Merwin 


Chris Merwin has spent the last twenty-one years studying various instruments such as the guitar, tiple, Arabic oud, Hawaiian steel guitar, Weissenbom guitar, and the Japanese shakuhachi flute. His travels have taken him to Tibet, Japan, China, Egypt, Hawaii, and many other places.

He has performed at the United Nations, for local Congressmen, and has made numerous appearances on TV and radio. He plays an eclectic mix of musical styles – blues, gospel, Hawaiian, bluegrass, as well as Buddhist meditation music, Japanese classical music, and folk songs.
