    Buskin & Batteau have been winning hearts and minds with their soulful acoustic balladry and fun-filled performances for more years than they care to remember. After being on hiatus for a few years, the duo is back and brings its “irresistible amalgam of melodic, sensual pop, folkie grit and killer wit” (The Washington Post) to Long Island for a rare concert appearance.

    David Buskin (piano, guitar) and Robin Batteau will be accompanied by virtuoso percussionist Marshal Rosenberg. Describing themselves as “hopelessly romantic,” “defiantly immature” and “usually hungry,” Buskin & Batteau have been Clio-winning jingle writers (“The Heartbeat of America” for Chevrolet, “All Aboard Amtrak” and “I’m Lovin’ It” for McDonald’s, among others). They have written songs that have been recorded by such notable artists as Judy Collins, Astrud Gilberto, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Bette Midler, Anne Murray, the Oak Ridge Boys, Peter, Paul & Mary, and Tom Rush (with whom they got their start in 1979 as his backup band). Yet, with their mix of talent, showmanship, Everly-crisp vocal harmonies and what Stephen Holden of The New York Times has called their “by turns acerbic, funny and plaintive” music and commentary, Buskin & Batteau are consummate entertainers in their own right.

    Buskin & Batteau have performed on London street corners, in New York’s Carnegie Hall and at folk festivals throughout the U.S. They have shared Grammy, Emmy and Gold Record Awards and have performed and recorded with a host of other artists. They previously performed for FMSH in 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 each 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. 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" or the new “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.

    The library staff has asked us to stress that amplifiers are NOT permitted at these jams.

    Attendees are also encouraged to visit the Folk Music Society of Huntington’s website at www.fmsh.org for information about our Thursday night and Saturday night concerts. We would love to see you at these concerts.

    John John Brown

    In the winter of 2013, right after his twin boys were born, John John Brown started writing songs that would turn into his debut album The Road. No Depression calls it, "a supple and suggestive blend of astute Americana accompanied by a quiet, reflective glow", while Elmore Magazine dubbed him "one of the more promising young names in folk music today". John John's live performances have been garnering critical claim as well. In 2015 and 2017 he was chosen as a Kerrville Folk Finalist for the legendary "New Folk" Competition. He went home a winner of the South Florida Folk Fest in 2016, and he was recently selected as a 2017 Emerging Artist at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival. Steeped in good storytelling and fingerpicking melodies, John John Brown seems to have discovered part of the mystery that surrounds the great singer/songwriter tradition.

    Steve Robinson

    Steve, winner of the 2007 Long Island Blues Society's Blues Challenge, is a native Long Islander. He has been a carpenter, high school English teacher, commercial shell fisherman, truck driver, landscape crew foreman, air traffic controller, union rep., and computer programmer (and those are just some of the jobs). “It hasn’t been dull”, as Ellen, his wife of 39 years, puts it. What he is now is one hell of a songwriter, guitarist, singer, and performer. Steve is a self-taught guitarist and has developed his own unique finger style combining driving rhythms with tasteful licks.

    Called "a musician and singer of dazzling versatility" (No Depression), and "one of the finest singers and musicians anywhere in folkdom" (The Boston Globe), Tracy Grammer is among contemporary folk music's most beloved artists.

    Renowned for her pure voice, deft guitar and violin work, and incantatory storytelling, Grammer has recorded and performed with Joan Baez and Mary Chapin Carpenter, headlined several of the nation's top folk festivals -- including the Philadelphia Folk Festival and Falcon Ridge -- and enjoyed 12 consecutive years as one of folk radio's 50 most-played artists, both solo and with the late Dave Carter.

    Grammer’s 11th release, Low Tide, is the first of her albums to showcase her original songs. Low Tide was among the ten most-played albums on folk radio in 2018 and also was voted a Top 10 Album of the Year by Fish Records UK.

    Robinson Treacher is an engaging, high-energy performing songwriter with a powerful voice and unique guitar stylings. Passionate, gritty and soulful, he has drawn comparisons to David Gray, Richie Havens and Van Morrison. “Like a tent revival shouter rooted in gospel and blues – a mix of silk and gravel – the sound is coming from a core somewhere deep,” wrote Richard Cuccaro in a Jan. 2015 Acoustic Live! in New York City cover story entitled Robinson Treacher - Soul Conjurer. br>
    Not one to be pigeonholed into one particular genre, he takes fibers from many -- from the bluesy soul of Otis Redding and Sam Cooke to the weathered back- country of The Band and Hank Williams -- and weaves them into his own distinct musical tapestry. br>
    Robinson has performed at venues throughout the New York metro area and across the country, including an appearance at the 2015 Huntington Folk Festival. His first album, "Porches", was released in 2013, and his most recent EP "Born" is available now.. br>
    Cassidy Catanzaro sold over a million records as the lead singer and creative engine of the Lava/Atlantic group Antigone Rising during their most successful years, (2000-2008). She has toured with The Rolling Stones, Aerosmith, The Allmans and has appeared on the Tonight Show, A&E's Breakfast With The Arts and on VH1 as a commentator on the popular "I Love..." Series in multiple episodes. Her endorsements, print and TV ads include, The Gap, Seven Jeans, Mustang Automobiles, Motorola and Sure Microphones. She was voted by ESPN as "One To Watch" along with other notable up and coming celebrities.

    As a songwriter, legendary Swedish pop songwriter Max Martin has requested Cassidy's songs for placement with his mega-star clients. Her composition “For You” was recently featured on the Demi Lovato Confident album. She has composed songs for Shinedown and Dorothy guitarist Nick Perry's solo projects, Mount Holly and Underground Thieves, as well as enjoyed song placements in film and television.

    A graduate of UCB for Improvisational Comedy, her acting credits include stage, film and television. Most recently Cassidy can be seen performing with Symphony Orchestras across North America in the show, Women Rock. Her latest solo album, All Good Things is due out in early 2020. She plans to support the album with a national tour bringing her dynamic performances and powerful voice back to the fans that launched her career.

    For decades, Cassidy has used her voice as an advocate of human rights and environmental issues, and is a certified Yogi!
