Jay Mankita returned to Huntington to perform his own brand of "traditional, contemporary, Brazilian & quirky originals". He's opened for David Bromberg at IMAC.

Pete Seeger says, "Jay Mankita jumps up and down with a big grin on his face playing incredible guitar getting everyone laughing . Moments later, he's doing a dead serious song with no accompaniment. ... I think he's one of the half dozen best songwriters today!"
