Jimmy LaFave and his band
 Sunday, August 2,  7:00 P.M.
 Port Jefferson Village Center, Port Jefferson, New York

The Sunday Street Acoustic Series (sponsored by WUSB-FM) and The Greater Port Jefferson Arts Council are pleased to present Jimmy LaFave, an Austin, Texas based singer songwriter and his band in concert on Sunday, August 2 at 7:00 P.M. at The Port Jefferson Village Center in Port Jefferson, New York.

Jimmy has been a prominent figure on the Austin music scene since he arrived there in 1986.  Dave Marsh says of Jimmy:  “One of America’s greatest voices…he sings like one of those clear channel radio stations, cutting across the night ."  In addition to his original songs, Jimmy is an outstanding interpreter of Bob Dylan’s songs and has recorded a host of them. The Dylan songs also find their way into Jimmy’s performances along with brilliant covers of songs by Townes Van Zandt, Jackson Browne, and others, resulting in a seamless mix of music.
