Golden Link Members Showcase Concert! -- CANCELLED



March 31st, 7:30 PM - $5 Donation requested at the door.

Join us for another great Members Showcase Concert!  Whenever a month has 5 Tuesdays, in place of the normal sing-around, Golden Link draws from its pool of talented members and holds a concert that lets us showcase their music.  Our  performer this time are:

Laurie Hunt and Lawrence SugarmanLaurie Hunt and Laurence Sugarman have been making beautiful music separately and together for a long, long time. Laurie, a lifelong Rochesterian, fools around on the hammered dulcimer, ukulele, and bass. She performed with the Passing Fancies, the Wakefield Dancers, the Wet Dog String Band (where she and Laurence met) and various other groups.

Inspired by Pete Seeger, Laurence started playing old-time banjo as a boy growing up in Northeast Ohio. For a decade Laurence was involved in various musical groups in Missouri where he first took up the fiddle. Influenced by Ozark, Cajun, and Country Swing, he was a member of the St. Louis-based Original Mound City String Band that took first place in the Tennessee State Fiddling Championship in the mid 1970s.

Laurie and Laurence began their musical and romantic collaboration 20 years ago. Between the two of them they have produced four records of new and old music. They bring technical precision to heartfelt melodies to keep recreating new traditional music together.

Bradbury NoraNora has been singing folk songs all her life. She grew up singing with her banjo playing dad and her six sisters and just never stopped. As kids they sang everything from Jamaica Farewell and Sloop John B to John Denver and James Taylor. Lots of church singing too. She plays both traditional and contemporary folk and is happiest when she finds something people can sing along with.
Downen Bill 600 sqBill first picked up a guitar when he was 14. It left him with an inescapable feeling that it was time for his boot heels to be a-wanderin’. Getting the keys to the highway did not help him, no nevermind as one too many a-mornings he still woke up with the blues two different ways, troubled in mind, crazy as a cross-eyed cat and possessed of a chronic inability to get satisfied. Please stop by on March 31st. to hear him address these conundrums.
