MARA LEVINE WITH GATHERING TIME Last show of the season!
Fri. Jun. 9, 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm.
Called “one of the best singers of her generation” by Christine Lavin, folksinger and jewelry designer Mara Levine has been creating beautiful interpretations of fine traditional and contemporary folk songs for many years. She has an ear for both new songs and for classics that can be reshaped to sound fresh and new.
Voted best band runner-up (and top folk band) in the 2011 Long Island Press readers’ poll, Gathering Time is like a high-energy Peter, Paul & Mary or a co-ed Crosby, Stills & Nash, with various parts of The Byrds, Joni Mitchell, the Eagles and America mixed in; a head-turning folk-rock harmony trio described recently as “getting a whole beehive-full of buzz” on the northeast regional folk scene.
Pan-Celtic band IONA, the series' hosts, present the 13th year of Swiftrun Celtic Concerts. Together for 29 years, local Celtic mainstay IONA transports its audience to Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Cornwall, Mann, Brittany, Asturies and Galicia, and explores those cultures transplanted in the New World. Lead singer, bouzouki and bodhrán player, Barbara Tresidder Ryan, and Bernard Argent on wooden flute, whistles, vocals and percussion, are joined by Chuck Lawhorn on bass guitar, whistles and vocals, Jim Queen, fiddle, banjo and vocals, and dancer Joe Duffy. To reserve a seat, call 703 426-1450 or email email@example.com. $20 suggested donation. Event WebsiteAdd to Google Calendar
