    The Folk Music Society of Huntington’s monthly Folk Jam/Song Circle/Sing-Along affords musicians and singers of all experience levels an opportunity to play, sing and hone their performance skills. Extending from 1-4 p.m. one Sunday a month at the South Huntington Public Library (145 Pidgeon Hill Road, Huntington Station), the Folk Jams are completely acoustic, unplugged events attended primarily by amateur musicians and those who love to sing, although visitors who just want to listen are also welcome. Song selections range across the broad folk milieu, but are often taken from the "Rise Up Singing" and "Rise Again" songbooks. Admission is free and open to the public. Participants are asked to bring their voices, acoustic instruments, and a snack/non-alcoholic beverage to share.

    Greg Cornell and the Cornell Brothers (siblings in song, not in fact) is a Brooklyn-based roots music quartet featuring fiddle/mandolin, guitar, bass and percussion, along with tight three-part harmonies, that has played venues in New York, festivals and club dates in New England, and four shows at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival in Utah. The group’s musical repertoire features a blend of bluegrass, country, old-time and blues. Inspired by his literary and musical heroes -- Emerson, Whitman, Doc Boggs, Levon Helm, Gordon Lightfoot, Seldom Scene, Neil Young, Doc Watson and Jerry Garcia’s acoustic work -- singer-songwriter Greg Cornell writes stories of struggle and regret ending in hope. He uses nature -- especially the mountains and the sea -- as settings for his tales of yearning and redemption. Accompanying Cornell (guitar and vocals) will be Amanda Homi (harmony vocals and percussion), Chris Nattrass (upright bass) and Zack Bruce (mandolin and harmony vocals).

    David Moss is a Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter and a 2011 winner of the prestigious Grassy Hill Kerrville New Folk Competition. Moss hails from Peoria, IL and began his musical journey playing cello and singing in various formats at a very young age. After earning a degree in cello performance from the University of Illinois (Urbana-Champaign), he moved to Austin, TX in 2007 and immersed himself in the music scene there for a number of years before relocating to New York. Besides performing as a solo artist and with his twin brother, Adam, he continues his cello career playing and composing with The Blue Hit, Ana Egge, Moishe Circus and Satellite Ballet, among others. Moss’ song “Jerusalem,” penned in 2010, was featured on “Democracy Now” in 2014 – the same year that he released an album entitled Songs for Willoughby. (www.mosssongs.com)
