    Brother Sun celebrates the amazing power of three-part male harmonies – weaving contemporary and traditional folk with eclectic touches of blues, gospel, jazz and pop. Comprised of nationally touring singer-songwriters Joe Jencks, Greg Greenway and Pat Wictor, the trio has performed sold-out concerts across the U.S. and evoked standing ovations at the Falcon Ridge and Philadelphia Folk Festivals, among others. Brother Sun’s sophomore release, Some Part of the Truth, was the #1 album on the Folk DJ chart for 2013, while its self-entitled debut recording was #8 for 2011.

    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" songbook. 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.

    Catie Curtis is a veteran on the singer/songwriter folk scene, crisscrossing the US for 20 years – and counting – performing shows, recording and releasing 13 CDs, with devoted fans following her every move. She’s performed at the White House several times, at two Presidential Inaugural Balls, with Lilith Fair, and at Carnegie Hall. The winner of more than her share of Boston Music Awards, she also took the Grand Prize in the 2006 International Songwriting Competition (out of 15,000 entries). Catie recorded a duet with Kris Kristofferson for his CD "The Austin Sessions” and there’s a good chance you’ve heard a song of hers in a movie or on a TV show. The New Yorker called Catie a "folk-rock goddess."
