Acoustic Allies

The Folk Music Society of Huntington is proud to ally with these local organizations and events that support contemporary and traditional folk musicianship:


The Long Island Fingerstyle Guitar Club provides a forum for fingerstyle guitarists of all levels to network, swap and play songs, and learn more about the acoustic guitar during monthly meetings/workshops and open mics.

Events generally take place on the second Wednesday of the month at the Westbury Friends Community Center.


NorthShore Original Open Mic (NOOM) is a weekly gathering of Long Island-based songwriters with varying levels of experience who are dedicated to the craft of writing and singing their songs. Hosted by singer-songwriter Toby Tobias, the Wednesday night‬ sessions provide a supportive collegial environment for the performing songwriters. They are also open for other music lovers to enjoy. In light of the ongoing pandemic, NOOM is currently being streamed online via its Facebook group — with participants performing live from their homes in a song-swap format via Zoom. Singer-Songwriter Richard Parr coordinates the livestreams.


Songwriters of Long Island

As its name implies, Songwriters of Long Island aims to support and showcase talented Long Island area songwriters. Bimonthly songwriter showcases are currently taking place online and are viewable via the Songwriters of Long Island Facebook group @ — a social media platform on which members are also invited to upload or post their songs (including audio/video links). J. Peter Hansen, a LI-based singer-songwriter, leads the group.
