Hard Luck Cafe

Since the 1960s, coffeehouses have served as smaller forums to see and hear local and regional artists. The Hard Luck Café, begun in 1992, strives to do the same by presenting local, regional and up-and-coming national touring artists in an intimate atmosphere. Held on the third Thursday of the month, from September to June, at Huntington’s Cinema Arts Centre, the Hard Luck Café usually features a split bill with two artists/groups, preceded by an open mic (for which sign-up is at 7 p.m.). Admission is $10 for FMSH and Cinema Arts Centre members and $15 for non-members. Tickets are sold only at the door. Refreshments are available for purchase.

Location

Hard Luck Café concerts are held in the Sky Room at Huntington’s Cinema Arts Centre – 423 Park Avenue, Huntington, NY.

    A pair of Philadelphia-based trios -- one all female, the other all male – share the bill

    — Ladybird —

    Ladybird is a multi-instrumental, harmony-based folk/bluegrass trio hatched on a front porch – with whiskey under one wing and a banjo under another. Drawing on a wide array of influences spanning from the traditional American songbook to Swedish folk and jazz, these ladies (Cecilia Ferneborg, Laura Kay and Sarah Larsen) take to the stage with fiddle, dobro, banjo, guitar, and mandolin -- blending their powerful original songs with fresh takes on old folk and bluegrass favorites.

    — The End of America —

    The End of America is a band of friends, singers and travelers who blend three-part harmony with a rock and Americana style that’s sure to resonate with fans of Ryan Adams, CSNY and Dawes. Prior to launching the trio, Brendon Thomas, James Downes and Trevor Leonard all fronted other bands. Although their vocal chemistry also can be heard on their self-entitled debut CD and previously released EPs, the raw honesty of their performances is something to experience live.
