Joan is a long time GL member and a singer songwriter to whom the lyrics are very important whether to make a statement on the environment, to examine how we treat one another or to express her perceptions. Joan’s influences include Joni Mitchell, Phoebe Snow as well as Carol King and Gordon Lightfoot. She has several CD’s to her credit and has played in many venues in and outside of Rochester.

Another long time Golden Link member, Bob has travelled nationally playing and singing as a professional musician. Performing from California to New York, Bob has played in numerous venues including Caffè Lena where he played again last year  and The Ark, a well-known Coffee House in Ann Arbor, where he was invited to play, also last year, at a 50th Anniversary Reunion concert with such artists as Ray Bierl, Ed Trickett and the Chenille Sisters.  

My first meeting  with Bob occurred when, learning of my appreciation for Leon Redbone’s music from a mutual acquaintance, he invited me to a concert and proceeded to take me to Leon’s dressing room and introducing me to, it turned out, his personal friend.  Bob’s influences include Mayne Smith, The Carters, and Utah Phillips and his musical tastes run to the traditional and older repertoire of American folk music although he is not limited to it. His easy going style and clear enjoyment of playing promise an entertaining performance. Joining Bob for this concert will be Marshall Smith, David Russell, and Mark Weeg.

Best known for his group The Backsliders, Jim’s performances generally highlight songs of commercial county music’s classic era, the 1950’s and 1960’s. While mostly country, he also performs folk, pop and blues, a genre that is more recently called Americana; the older , purer or rootsy music born in the US. Influenced by such artists as Hank Williams, Hank Snow, Merle Haggard, he also learned from Ray Price, Kris Kristofferson, Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson. Jim’s set will entertain with some well-known but perhaps not so often heard music that is sure to please.

We hope to see you there and remember, based on our most recent member survey, we are testing a recommendation to end the evening a bit earlier and thus, we will have only 3 acts. Do not fear however, goodies will still be served!
