This program stars Stuart Marcus and Gerry McKeveny of the Long Island-based folk-rock/Americana/AAA trio GATHERING TIME.  The program will include a selection of folk music from the '60s and '70s.

For over a decade, Gathering Time (Stuart Markus, Hillary Foxsong, and Gerry McKeveny) has toured in the US and internationally, mixing new interpretations of both '60s and '70s classics old traditional tunes with their original songs. Their sound reflects the voicings and arrangements of the genre's pioneers, The Byrds, Peter, Paul & Mary, Joni Mitchell, and Crosby, Stills & Nash, brought into today with acoustic-electric alchemy all their own.
