March 6 @ 8:00 pm - 9:15 pm
Ellis Delaney will be the featured artist during the Folk Music Society of Huntington’s virtual First Saturday Concert series on March 6, 2021 8:00 PM to 9:15 PM EST (7:00 PM to 8:15 PM Central). Since the ongoing pandemic prevents the nonprofit organization from hosting in-person concerts, this one will be live-streamed via Zoom and also live-streamed to the FMSH YouTube Channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCnJ9zJQXl2ml128-TIPRFLg/about) and Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/FMSHLongIsland). Details on how to join the Zoom stream will appear here in mid-February.
“While we are unable to present Ellis live, we are delighted that she will be performing for us via livestream from Minneapolis,” said Michael Kornfeld, president of the FMSH board of directors. “Unlike our live concerts, there is no admission fee for this online one. However, like other performing artists, Ellis has had most of her gigs cancelled, is unable to tour now and would appreciate donations via her online tip jar while you are viewing the concert.”

There’s just something about Ellis Delaney. She is at once funny and wise, thoughtful and uninhibited, and her captivating voice is matched by her uplifting lyrics. If you looked up the definition of open-hearted in the dictionary, you just might find her photo there. Ellis’ performances are transformational; she leaves her audiences better than she finds them, with softened edges & opened hearts.
Ellis is a woman with a mission. She believes music is healing, and she offers her music for free / pay what you can online. For the last year, she has been hosting a weekly “Right On Time” hotline message that supports resilience by offering different grounding / mindful practices she’ll be focusing on that week as well as a reminder that we are interdependent and worthy of love and belonging. As her song asks, “What if we are right on time?”
A transplant from Texas to Minnesota at age 16, Ellis got her start at open mics, and grew her following touring full time. Ellis has been recognized both for her songwriting skills as well as her engaging performances. She became a mainstay at several folk festivals, and has been a repeat performer and voted audience favorite at Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, Moab Folk Festival, Sisters Folk Festival, and Rocky Mountain Folk Festival.
The Zoom After-Party (For FMSH Members Only) will begin shortly after the Livestream Concert ends.
