Toby Walker, blues virtuoso, plays Stony Brook's LI Museum

Toby Walker

Sunday, October 20th, 5 P.M.

Opening is Mike Agranoff

(this show is presented in partnership with the Long Island Blues Society)

Toby Walker has been hailed as a roots music finger style guitar virtuoso who is well-known not only in the US but also in Europe. Walker blends blues, ragtime, country, bluegrass, rock and old time jazz into his own unique style. Jorma Kaukonen, of Hot Tuna, and earlier The Jefferson Airplane, says of Toby: "Flat out...you have to hear this great musician...I'm blown away" and has brought Toby to teach at his Fur Peace Ranch Guitar Camp.

Toby’s passion for blues, rags, folk and other traditional American music drove him to visit the Mississippi Delta, Virginia and the Carolinas where he tracked down some of the more obscure – but immensely talented --- music makers of an earlier era. His most recent album, From The Ground Up, demonstrates his passion for this music as he records his version of blues classics from these early masters. (littletobywalker.com)

Mike Agranoff’s material encompasses traditional ballads and tunes, Tin Pan Alley, contemporaries in the Folk World, heart-stopping spoken pieces, and his own witty pen. It’s delivered with skillful guitar and concertina accompaniment and a sly twinkle in the eye for some truly hilarious songs.

Advance sale is $20 at www.sundaystreet.org through Friday October 18th, with tickets at the door for $25 (cash only).

With rare archival footage and revelations about the alleged blackmail and payoffs used to get their most defining scoops, SCANDALOUS: THE TRUE STORY OF THE NATIONAL ENQUIRER presents an expansive and probing look into the true story of the most infamous tabloid in U.S. history, charting how it pushed its own particular brand of fake news from the fringe to the mainstream.

Bluesman Jon Shain with FJ Ventre on string bass

in WUSB's Sunday Street series at The Long Island Museum

Sunday. September 22nd, 5 P.M.

The Sunday Street Series partners with the Long Island Blues Society to present this show.

Jon Shain is a veteran singer-songwriter who’s been turning heads for years with his words, his fiery acoustic guitar work, and his evolved musical style – combining improvised Piedmont blues with bluegrass, swing and ragtime. Shain was the winner, in the solo/duo category, in the 2019 International Blues Challenge in Memphis.

Originally from the Merrimack River mill town of Haverhill, Massachusetts, Shain journeyed to North Carolina where, as a student at Duke University, he learned the Piedmont blues tradition by playing in Big Boy Henry’s backing band. Shain also founded a folk rock group, Flyin’ Mice, playing up and down the East Coast.

Subsequent years saw Shain going solo, returning to his roots in the folk and blues circuit. He has released eight studio albums, working with studio luminaries such as Dave Mattacks and Chris Stamey. Recent years have seen him headlining listening rooms on the east coast, the Midwest, and in Europe. Shain’s newest release is the gorgeous roots album, Tomorrow Will Be Yesterday Soon, recorded with long-time collaborator FJ Ventre, who joins Jon in this show as he plays the upright bass.

Opening is Bob Westcott

Bob has been perfecting his elegant finger-style guitar work for over 30 years. In the 1960's, Bob played the basket houses of Greenwich Village, explored the British folk scene, traveled through Canada and The US in the 70's before settling on eastern Long Island.
