1st Saturday Concerts

The First Saturday Concerts series is our forum for presenting regional, national and international folk artists. Folk enthusiasts can enjoy a guaranteed variety of various folk forms, as we have carefully designed the series to ensure that the traditional, contemporary, bluegrass/blues and ethnic music categories are fairly represented each concert season. From the folk legend Tom Paxton, to America’s foremost Irish group Cherish the Ladies, to the music of the Andes in Hinantillan, the First Saturday has become THE day for folk music among our audiences.

Location

Most First Saturday concerts are held at the Congregational Church of Huntington, 30 Washington Drive, Centerport (at the Eastern border of Huntington off Route 25A), in the church sanctuary. Check on the concerts pages to verify the venue for each specific concert.
