For many many years Frank Woerner has played a pivotal role in promoting, teaching, and continuing folk music in the NYC Area. On Friday, May 20, the Folk Music Society of NY (NY Pinewoods Folk Music Club) is holding a concert to celebrate and honor Frank's contribution. Frank will appear with the Richmond Tavernacle Choir. The Richmond Tavernacle Choir (Frank, Norm Pederson, Bob Conroy, Jan Christensen, David Kleiman, Alison Kelley, Heather Wood, Ken Schatz) performs annually at the restored tavern in Historic Richmondtown on Staten Island — hence the name. Expect plenty of rousing singalongs. At OSA Hall, 220 E 23rd St, suite 707, between 2nd and 3rd Ave, Manhattan. Pinewoods Members $10, general public $20, FREE to all fulltime students under age 23 and to all young people under 18 years of age. Info: 212-957-8386.

Frank Woerner has certainly been an inspiration for a generation or two of aspiring folk singers. I'd love to be there but I'll have to wait until the Mystic Sea Music Festival to buy him a round.

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

Frank not only loves the music,has a rousing and enthusiastic way of presenting a song; but he is a welcoming presence at song circles; always makes sure every person, even the shy ones , get a chance to share a song. Great guy, great singer.

I am so sorry that I won't be able to attend. Frank has been a friend and an inspiration and he deserves this tribute and more.

Well done FMSNY for celebrating a man who has given so much to traditional singing.

Oh, alas, I have a previous commitment, otherwise I'd be sorely tempted to make the 200 mile trek.

Frank has always been an inspiration, a voice of encouragement, and a teacher of new generations - at the same time maintaining his own integrity and uniqueness. I've been proud to have been, and to continue to be his friend for more than 40 years.

I too have known Frank a long time. I remember happy days singing with him at the Eagle Tavern, NY, in the sessions run so ably by Dan Milner. It's a bit too far away for me to make it to the tributet, will somebody please give him my regards. Have a great night.
