Upcoming Events

  • Sun, September 18th, 2016, 1:00pm
    at South Huntington Public Library
    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.
  • Sat, October 1st, 2016, 7:30pm
    at The Congregational Church of Huntington
    No Fuss And Feathers is the New York-based “heck-of-a-good-time” collaboration hatched by The YaYas (Catherine Miles and Jay Mafale), Karyn Oliver, and Carolann Solebello. The group -- which released its first CD, Traveling Circus, earlier this year -- opened for Tom Paxton during the 2015 Huntington Folk Festival, while its individual members have all previously performed for FMSH. Onstage, NFF is a dynamic, cohesive cocktail of delicious harmonies, infectious rhythm, and spontaneous hilarity — with award-winning songwriting always at center stage. Individually, the four are nationally touring performers who have charted at the top of Folk and Americana radio and appeared on stage at some of the nation's most respected festivals and venues. Collectively, they are an incorrigible bunch of musical co-conspirators bent on giving their audience an unforgettable show. Carolann, Karyn, Catherine, and Jay are four long-time friends who tour independently of each other, but decided it would be fun to play together sometimes. What started out as an occasional songwriters-in-the-round side project quickly evolved into a full-fledged band. Sometimes referred to as a modern folk quartet, No Fuss And Feathers is truly a mix of the styles of the three songwriting entities: pop-infused-literate folk, bluesy-country-tinged acoustic, and Brooklyn-edged-Americana.
