Runa_600px.jpgMarch 24 - RUNA in Concert! Quickly gaining recognition as one of Irish music’s new “super-groups,” RUNA has been enchanting audiences by pushing the boundaries of Irish folk music into the Americana and roots music formats since their formation in 2008.  This is Celtic music at its very best and promises to be an evening to remember.  For more information, video previews, and to buy tickets Click Here.

Jammin_silhouette_600px.jpgApril 10 - Jamming Workshop! Ever wonder what people mean by a folk jam or jamming? Bring your questions as well as your instrument. David Russell has been in many a jam and will kindly guide you through one, using two- or three-chord songs. After this, you’ll know how to prepare for jams around greater Rochester and look forward to jumping in. Attendance is limited and registration is online only - Click Here.

    I get your newsletter and I appreciate it. We get your members and appreciate them too! At one time Golden Link and Oswego Music Hall had a cooperative relationship— a member of one was a member of the other. That is no longer the case but I believe, nevertheless, that one hand washes the other and that our mutual support of live music underlies our support for one another’s venues. Janice Hansen knows this to be true when on occasion presenters throughout CNY have occasion to gather and are able to share challenges and successes. It is a labor of love. I am delighted that you booked Durham County Poets as we did and inspired that you brought Peter Yarrow to your stage. After our success with Joan & Joni, we realize how drawn our constituency is to the legends of folk. So bravo to you; may you continue to mine gold. Our newsletter is not as well developed as yours, but we would be happy to send it to any on request. (Perhaps through our website is best,
    Happy Spring!

    I thank you for presenting Peter Yarrow. I was an amazing concert. Thank you, Janice Hansen, Concert Chair, for all that you do! I hope I can sing and play guitar as Peter when I grow up.

    I love the website. Looks great! However, please continue to (snail) mail a hard copy newsletter to me. Some habits die hard… like reading beloved newsletters that stack up on my kitchen counter. Thanks
