"Putting Down Roots" concerts is part of an ongoing series of Sustainability Salons run by host Maren Cooke. They take place in a unique green-renovated home and permaculture microfarm nestled into a 600-acre urban park. Admission $15.00.
What's a "house concert", you ask? Pretty much what it sounds like: a concert in someone's home. the most intimate way to hear music. Here's a short video that describes the concept.

My appearance at NEFFA (New England Folk Festival) has been, with one or two exceptions, an annual treat for me. This massive festival of dance and music is now in it's 73rd year of continuous operation.
I will presenting an hour of humorous songs and stories starting 10:00 AM on Sunday. (Why, you may ask, would they schedule such a popular session first thing Sunday morning? I asked exactly the same question. The rationale I was given is that they hope to get folks out to the Festival early. OK. See you bright and early, and bring us both a cup of coffee :-)

Princeton, NJ MUSIC AT MALTBY'S A private home in Princeton, NJ
128 Stone Cliff Road
Princeton, NJ 08540

LMaltby@workrights.org
My last concert at Lew Maltby's back in January encountered all sorts of impediments, including weather and competing events on the same date. And a lot of my fans were elsewhere that night. So we decided to try it again under better circumstances. Music at Maltby's is a monthly house concert series at a private home in Princeton. The music presented is very eclectic; from jazz to opera to (yes) folk. $20 suggested donation, variable based on your own circumstances. Casual dress and BYOB. RSVP is requested by email. ,

Scipio Center, NY MERRIFIELD CONCERTS A private home in Scipio Center, NY 13147. Call or email for reservations and directions. 734-717-7719

Merrifield is an 1840 historic cobblestone farm in the finger lakes region of upstate New York. There are sheep, chickens, berry gardens, flower gardens and a lovely country setting off the beaten track out in farm country. The house is just a few miles from Harriet Tubman's house and was used on the Underground Railroad. Sometimes we get people coming to the concert because they want to see the house. Their goal has been to create a place for community gathering and building and the response has been most encouraging. Admission $15

I am proud to be part of the 50th year of North America's longest running live folk concert broadcast, originating in Ithaca, N.Y. approximately 32 Sundays a year since l967. Admission is free. If you can't get to the show, you can listen live on WVBR, 93.5 FM, or on the web at WVBR.com. However, the only way to get the show in high def and 3-D is to be at the concert itself. And Phil Shapiro, the show's host throughout its 49 years of existence is best appreciated in 3-D.

This is an event to celebrate the publication of a new book, "New Jersey Folk Revival Music" by Michael C. Gabriele. The book covers the history of Folk Music in New Jersey from colonial days, through the Folk Revival of the 60s through today's current folk scene. Michael Gabriele will be presenting a talk and book-signing event at the library. There is one chapter, "Thirsty Ears for Forty Years" that deals with the history of the Folk Project in which I am prominently featured. So Gabriele has asked me to present a few songs at the event. Admission is free.
