    "Susan Werner, a clever songwriter and engaging performer, brings literacy and wit back to popular song,” according to The New Yorker, while the Chicago Tribune has aptly hailed her as “one of the most innovative songwriters working today.”

    A favorite of FMSH audiences, Werner has never been one to adhere to just one musical style. A gifted singer-songwriter, who accompanies herself on both guitar and piano, she is known for her musical versatility and for her witty repartee during live performances. The classically trained and jazz-inspired Iowa native, who now calls Chicago home, has been delighting our concert and festival audiences for more than two decades. ... more

    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.

    at Heckscher Park - Chapin Rainbow Stage
    Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Loudon Wainwright III headlines the 14th Annual Huntington Folk Festival on Saturday, July 27, at Heckscher Park, located off Main Street (Route 25A) and Prime Avenue, in Huntington Village. Opening for Wainwright on the park’s [Harry] Chapin Rainbow Stage that evening will be his daughter, Lucy Wainwright Roche. Extending from 11 a.m. to 10:30 p.m., with a dinner break from 6-8 p.m., the free event – co-presented by the Folk Music Society of Huntington and the Huntington Arts Council – is part of the 54th Huntington Summer Arts Festival.

    Few songwriters have laid out their lives in song as graphically as Loudon Wainwright III, a 2010 Grammy Award-winner (Best Traditional Folk Album) for High Wide & Handsome: The Charlie Poole Project (with two previous Grammy nominations for I’m Alright in 1985 and More Love Songs in 1986). The singer-songwriter, humorist and actor is, perhaps, best known for his 1972 novelty song “Dead Skunk (in the Middle of the Road).” Maintains Stephen Holden of The New York Times: “Mr. Wainwright has proved to be far and away the most candid diarist among the singer-songwriters who … brought confessional poetry into popular song…”

    Prior to the evening concert, Michael Kornfeld, president of the Folk Music Society of Huntington and the Northeast Regional Folk Alliance (NERFA), and editor & publisher of AcousticMusicScene.com, will host a series of short showcases and song swaps from 12-6 p.m. These will take place near a canopy tent on the upper lawn area overlooking the stage and will feature some 30 artists/acts from half-a-dozen states. Unlike the unplugged showcases of previous years, these will be amplified. The day’s musical festivities begin with an open mic-song circle at 11 a.m.

    Daytime schedules will be posted online this summer at www.AcousticMusicScene.com, www.FMSH.org and www.HuntingtonArts.org.

    Among the artists who will showcase their talents during the afternoon are Melanie Brulée trio, Meghan Cary, Christian Diana, Roger Street Friedman, Genevieve, Sharon Goldman, Loretta Hagen, Marion Halliday, Joe Iadanza, Terry Kitchen, Scott Krokoff, Mara Levine, The Levins, Lipkin & Hitt, Kate Mills, Mike Montrey Band, Grace Morrison, Claudia Nygaard, D.B. Reilly, Eugene Ruffolo, Hank Stone, Jonathan Tea, and more to be announced.

    Festivalgoers are advised to bring lawn chairs and blankets and a picnic supper (or they can walk into Huntington Village and enjoy a meal at one of its many restaurants).

    The Huntington Folk Festival is part of an extended folk and Americana weekend at Heckscher Park. Long Island talent will be spotlighted on Friday night, July 27, with a shared bill featuring folk-harmony trio Gathering Time and singer-songwriter Christie Sweeney. On Friday night, the Crys Mathews Trio will grace the stage. Although both concerts are set for 8 p.m., Kornfeld will conduct a 7:15 p.m. special on-stage interview-conversation with Matthews, the grand-prize winner in the 2017 NewSong Music Performance & Songwriting Competition. Crystal Bowersox – a rising star whose influences span across folk-pop, classic rock, soul, blues and country – closes out the weekend on Sunday night.

    The Huntington Summer Arts Festival is produced by the Town of Huntington, presented by the Huntington Arts Council, and sponsored in part by the New York State Council for the Arts, the County of Suffolk and Canon U.S.A.

    The Everly Set: Noted NYC-based singer-songwriters Sean Altman & Jack Skuller pay tribute to their rock heroes, The Everly Brothers, in a show that takes you back to 1957 when teenagers Phil and Don Everly first burst on the scene and supercharged the vocal sound of rock’n’roll with sparkling harmonies that influenced The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Simon & Garfunkel, The Hollies, and The Bee Gees. Come and sing along to such hit songs as “Bye Bye Love,” “Cathy’s Clown,” “Wake Up Little Susie,” “All I Have To Do Is Dream,” “When Will I Be Loved,” “Crying In The Rain,” “Till I Kiss You,” “Love Hurts,” “Bird Dog,” “Claudette,” “Let It Be Me,” and more Everly (and Everly-influenced) classics from the late 1950s through the 1980s.

    Blessed with a silky tenor voice that produced chills (The New York Times), Altman is widely viewed as the father of modern a capella. He co-founded and led Rockapella on the Emmy Award-winning PBS-TV series Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego?, for which he co-wrote the theme song. Altman also currently sings a cappella with The GrooveBarbers and Doowopera, original pop songs on guitar as a solo artist, and original comedy songs as JEWMONGOUS.

    Skuller is a recipient of the Holly Prize, an award made possible by the Songwriters Hall of Fame as a tribute to the legacy of Buddy Holly. A writer for The Deli Magazine referred to him as a teen idol in the wrong era, noting that Buddy Holly would be proud. Skuller has performed his original music around the country with Radio Disney. He has also been a regular performer with the acclaimed Losers Lounge tribute series at Joe’s Pub in NYC.
