BOB WESTCOTT

Bob Westcott's astonishing finger style guitar work and distinctive songwriting have made him a perennial favorite on the Long Island scene and impresses audiences wherever he goes. This 30-plus year professional is also a Long Island Music Award nominee, and his album Rollin' Along finds frequent use in many a CD player.

Bob has opened for several nationally-known performers, including John Hammond, Richie Havens and most recently Tom Paxton at the Chapin Rainbow Stage in Hecksher Park.

Bob's annual Holiday Revue is a wildly popular event in which he presents his personal favorites to the Folk Music Society audience - this was a chance to see Bob shine on his own and enjoy this beloved performer in an intimate concert.


CATHY KREGER

There aren't enough superlatives for an adequate description of a Cathy Kreger performance! This Connecticut native has chosen Long Island for her home, to our benefit and delight.

Her percussive, accomplished guitar work and powerful voice was instantly recognizable to anyone who has heard her solo work and her work with other musicians. Her critically acclaimed album, Heart of the Matter, was available on the evening and was snapped up, as was her two previous sold-out releasesLive at the Blue Angel Café and Grand Central Waltz.

Cathy is a consumate professional; she has opened for a number of stars including Bonnie Raitt, The Band, and Taj Mahal. We're glad we didn't miss this Long Island Music Award nominee in a rare return concert appearance in our Hard Luck Café.
