    The LYNNes - 1/19

    Tickets: $20, $15, $10 ($22, $17, $10 at Door)

    “A bunch of powerful songs, two exceptional and complementary voices, some interesting twists on the arrangements … and a great rapport with the audience.” – MusicRiot (UK)

    TG-C03-18052018-The_Lynnes_large.jpgThe LYNNeS are Juno Award-winning songwriter Lynn Miles and award-winning songwriter Lynne Hanson. The two Canadian musicians are multi-instrumentalists, fusing tight vocal harmonies with hauntingly gritty lyrics. And also humor – the two witty songwriters play off each other live and have been known to leave the audience in stitches with their between-song banter.

    The two songwriters are not new to working together, having toured and written songs off and on over the past 10 years, and with Miles having produced two of Hanson’s albums (River of Sand and Seven Deadly Spins).

    For The LYNNeS, songs are what matter the most, and their debut album Heartbreak Song for the Radio has been nominated in five categories for the 2018 Canadian Folk Music Awards: best contemporary album, vocal group, ensemble, English-language songwriter, and producer.

    Lynn Miles is one of Canada’s most accomplished singer/songwriters – with 14 albums to her credit – and also the winner of four Canadian Folk Music awards and a 2003 Juno award for Roots and Traditional Solo Album of the Year. Her song “Black Flowers” appeared on Claire Lynch’s Grammy-nominated album North By South.

    Lynne Hanson has been playing her brand of “porch music with a little red dirt” for the past 10 years, has released 6 albums, won the Colleen Peterson Award for songwriting, and been nominated for a Canadian Folk Music Award.  For more information on The LYNNeS, Click Here to visit their website.

    North by Crooked North - 2/23

    Tickets: $20, $15, $10 ($22, $17, $10 at Door) - $5 Chili Supper

    Enjoy a fun evening of music to beat the midwinter blues with this double bill of local favorites, Dave North and Crooked North!

    The Crooked North is an acoustic, Americana string band that features some of the top bluegrass players in Western New York. Crooked_North_Folkus_20180228_11601.jpgThey capture the high energy of a new generation of modern bluegrass, the gritty soul of great American songwriting, and the Rust Belt ethos of their hometown. The band includes Jon Itkin on guitar, Ben Proctor on banjo and dobro, Rita Proctor on vocals, and Jordan Kleiman on bass. The band has played clubs and festivals across New York state, including Brantling Bluegrass Festival, Rochester Fringe Festival and Rochester International Jazz Festival.

    Dave_North_wall.jpgA native of Slough, England, Dave North has been playing Celtic folk music in the Upstate New York area since the mid-80s. He has an amazing repertoire of songs, from traditional ballads and sea songs to more contemporary songwriters such as Donovan, Van Morrison, and Christy Moore, with comic ditties and English music hall songs thrown in to mix it up. He will be joined for this gig by Marc Loan.

    Soup_and_Guitar.jpgBefore the concert, join us for a sing-around/jam session starting at 5 pm, and a chili supper from 6 to 7 pm (meat, vegetarian, and gluten-free options) served with bread, salad, and a brownie.

    Hochstein Performance Hall in Rochester, NY

    An Evening with Judy Collins - 3/9

    Judy Collins

    Tickets: $40 to $70

    Join us for this special Golden Link concert with Judy Collins, who has inspired audiences with sublime vocals, boldly vulnerable songwriting, personal life triumphs, and a firm commitment to social activism. In the 1960s, she evoked both the idealism and steely determination of a generation united against social and environmental injustices. Her stunning rendition of Joni Mitchell’s “Both Sides Now” has been entered into the Grammy Hall of Fame.

    Judy_Collins_White_600.jpgFive decades later, her luminescent presence shines brightly as new generations bask in the glow of her iconic 50-album body of work, and heed inspiration from her spiritual discipline to thrive in the music industry for half a century. "Collins remains a singer of astonishing clarity and intuition...." says USA Today.
