Ithacan folk singer comes to Long Island

November 1, 2013 by  

Fans of folk music are sure to want to make their way to Centerport, New York on Long Island this coming weekend for a special show.

Joe Crookston, a native of Ithaca, New York, will be heading to the area to perform several of his original works. An established star in the folk music world, Crookston’s album ‘Able Baker Charlie and Dog’ was awarded Album of the Year at the 2009 International Folk Alliance Conference.

His latest album, Darkling and the Bluebird Jubliee, is likely to be the focus of this performance, and he will be accompanied by Peter Glanville, a guitarist and singer who has worked as a duo partner with Crookston on many occasions.

The concert will be hosted by the Folk Music Society of Huntington (FMSH). The organization became a recognized non-profit in 1970, since which time it has been putting on folk music concerts in the Huntington area. Its mission is to provide folk performers, both newcomers and veterans, with the opportunity to perform their music in front of local fans.

Promoters for the FMSH will likely turn to printing companies to help them with the advertising campaign for this concert. Flyers are a good way to generate interest in an event, and handing them out in Centerport and nearby Huntington will no doubt bring more people to the show.

The concert takes place tomorrow, November 2, at the Congregational Church of Huntington. It runs from roughly 7:30 pm until 10:30 pm. There is a $20 fee for tickets.
