This month's performance:
As part of a continuing World Folk Music project the First Federated Church, 763 Avenue C (corner Ave C and 33rd. St), Bayonne, NJ will host an evening of American Roots Music Thursday, July 28th at 8:00 PM. This performance will feature the father and son duo, The McCloskeys, playing Jazz, Blues, Folk Songs, Bluegrass, and Original Compositions.
Bill McCloskey, the senior member of this duo, plays guitar, Dobro, sings, and will feature other rare instruments such as the Baritone Weissenborn. Bill's fifteen year old son Jake, the junior member of this duo, is a modern wonder on the mandolin. The word "prodigy" has often been used when describing Jake's talent. Coming to Bayonne on the heels of a David Grisman Summer Mandolin Camp, where he performed on stage with David and delivered a fine solo performance, Jake is certainly all charged up for this show. This performance promises to be brilliant!
A suggested donation of $5.00 per person is requested at the door to help raise monies for the Church's restoration fund. Families are encouraged to attend and the folks under twelve are free. For more information call (201) 424-6141 or email Ed@EJSAntiques.com.
Don't miss this great evening of American Roots Music. We hope to see you there!
