Called one of the best singers of her generation by Christine Lavin, and “golden voiced” by David Amram, International touring artist Mara Levine is known as an exceptional song-finder, selecting and then creating beautiful interpretations of fine traditional and contemporary songs.  Her latest CD “Facets of Folk”, was the #1 album, with the #1 song and #1 artist positions on the International Folk DJ Chart for January 2019.  On “Facets of Folk”, Levine presents a number of songs of social conscience with themes of taking a stand, making a difference and considering the treatment of others.  Those tunes, written by popular contemporary songwriters as well as emerging talents, are all carefully set among folk favorites and lesser known songs.  Mara will be supported by Gathering Time, who will have their own set at well.  Learn more about her and her music at https://maralevine.com.

Start with the 1960s folk tradition of Peter, Paul & Mary; add the vocal complexity and electric energy of Crosby, Stills & Nash, a dash of The Byrds and a jot of Joni Mitchell, and you have Gathering Time, a folk-rock/Americana harmony trio that has been turning heads for nearly a decade on the northeastern folk circuit and beyond.  With a vocal blend often described as seamless, inspired guitar playing and precise percussion, Stuart Markus, Hillary Foxsong and Gerry McKeveny evince deep roots in ‘60s folk-rock, with a healthy dash of traditional folk in the mix.

Their stage chemistry makes clear that they take the music (if not themselves) very seriously, yet their infectious energy wins over even fans who never considered themselves folkies.  Check them out at https://www.gathering-time.com and see why they were voted one of “Long Island’s Best” by the Long Island Press.

Other upcoming 2019 concerts include Deb Callahan on November 21 and Stephen DiJoseph on December 5.
