Background:


Singer-songwriter Katherine Congdon, a Long Island native, imbues her music with rich life experiences and personally uplifting and politically compelling messages. Katherine began strumming on a guitar and writing her own music more than 30 years ago, and she hasn’t stopped since. Her eclectic style reflects her love of rock, country, blues, and folk. Whether strumming and singing, or fingerpicking an instrumental, Katherine plays from the heart.

Katherine studies the lute, and has written several pieces, one of which was published in the Lute Society of America Quarterly, September 2004 issue. She has practiced yoga for many years and is in the process of obtaining her RYT certification from Yoga Alliance. In addition to the arts, Katherine is a volunteer with local non-profit HealthyPlanet, serving as a Board member and as chair of various committees. She is the mother of 3 amazing teenagers who have taught her much about living and loving.

Andy Greenhouse is a prolific topical songwriter and a versatile guitarist. He performs original songs and traditional American gospel tunes. Andy’s original tunes are humorous & pastoral. He is known for his sardonic, but sweet stage banter, and historical understanding of music. Come see this modern-day Woody Guthrie for whom music is a labor of love
