WOODSTOCK'S OWN FOLK MUSIC LEGEND
Video / Lessons
Our annual Bob Dylan Birthday Bash will be held for the first time at the legendary Levon Helm Studios. This star-studded show, which benefits Family of Woodstock and the John Herald Fund, has been sold out every year.
As always, I will host the show, and the cast of musicians and singers will include Amy Helm, Tracy Bonham, Zach Djanikian, Connor Kennedy, Simi Stone,
plus other local and internationally-known acts. The musical director will be Scott Petito and the house band will include BruceKatz (keys); Joe Magistro
Drums; Adam Widoff, guitars; Scott Petito, bass.
A special concert at the famed Maverick Concert Hall in Woodstock, NY featuring Happy Traum, Jay Ungar and Molly Mason, Elizabeth Mitchell, Tony Trischka, Adam Traum, Simi Stone and others TBA. This show will certainly sell out early.
The wonderful fingerstyle blues and ragtime artist, Mary Flower, and I will be sharing the evening at the recently renovated Caffe Lena, a legendary folk club in Saratoga Springs, NY. I first played there in its opening year, 1961, and have been back many times.
Richard Thompson's and Nancy Covey's excellent guitar and songwriting camp deep in the magnificent Catskill Mountains of NY State. Staff of instructors will include Richard Thompson, Shawn Colvin, Martin Simpson, Teddy Thompson, Jack Thompson, Sloane Wainwright, Zak Hobbs, Henry Kaiser and more. Happy will be teaching fingerpicking arrangements for Bob Dylan songs, among other topics.
This low-key, welcoming and beautiful guitar camp is deep in the woods in the heart of the Catskills, and home to Jay Ungar's glorious tune "Ashokan Farewell." The facilities are rustic but super comfortable and the excellent staff of instuctors will include Mary Flower, Mike Dowling, Peter Davis, Jefferson Hamer, Larry Baione and others.
I'm looking forward to returning to this great venue in Morristown.
