LI Concert Notes #67 10/28/10

Open Mics? Jam Sessions? Song Circles? If you attend any recurring open mics, jam sessions or song circles in Nassau or Suffolk (at restaurants, bars, churches, arts centers, libraries, private homes, etc.) and want to publicize these “open to the public” events, please send me the information and I will start a new section of LI Concert Notes just for these events. If you want to start up a new open mic, jam session, or song circle, that’s OK too. Be sure to include day, date, time, location, description of event, frequency of recurrence, electric or acoustic, genre of music, and contact information (phone or email). Here’s some great Live Music on Long Island.Venue addresses/phones/URLs at end of all listings. Please scroll down. The Folk Music Society of Huntington (FMSH) is posting this list on: or go to and click on “LI Concert Notes” Corrections and Comments are welcome. Support Live Music on Long Island.

  1. The music itself is enjoyable. Learning to play an instrument provides a way to explore your creative side. Unlike his time spent watching television or computer for free, you are able to acquire new skills and have fun when you try to learn to play an instrument.
