Sloan Wainwright In WUSB’s Sunday Street Series at The Long Island Museum

Sunday, March 8th, 5 P.M.

Sloan Wainwright is simply unique! She is at ease in variety of American musical styles --- pop, folk,jazz and blues--- all held together by the melodious tone of her rich contralto.

Her family tree (brother and folk-music luminary Loudon Wainwright, nephew Rufus Wainwright, nieces Martha Wainwright and Lucy Wainwright Roche) reads like a who's who of contemporary folk music. Sloan's incredible gift is not only her unique songwriting ability but also her dramatically voiced rendition of original songs. Sloan brings original songs from her most recent album, Bright Side of a Rainy Day, to this performance, as well as her interpretations of songs by Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Paul Simon and others.

Sloan will be accompanied by her long-time guitarist and collaborator Stephen Murphy for this performance.

Advance sale tickets are $25 through Friday, March 6th at www.sundaystreet.org with tickets at the door for $30 (cash only).
