Shady Rill features musicians Tom MacKenzie and Patti Casey playing everything from French Canadian dance tunes to Tin Pan Alley and old-time country as well as their own impressive originals. Great harmonies and wonderful instrumentation are the hallmark of these two much-traveled musicians.
Acousticrush features musicians Ben Campbell and Laura Molinelli on acoustic guitars and mandolins. Sweet, soaring harmonies shimmer as they perform their original songs as well as carefully chosen renderings of familiar and unfamiliar tunes alike.
This is a show for all ages and musical tastes, where fine talent and good energy take center stage. Doors open at 4, music starts at 4:30 pm. Refreshments will be provided by the Jamaica Community Church and D&Ks Grocery.
The fun continues on Sunday, May 18, with The Speckers who will take the stage for an evening of rowdy, traditional fiddle music. Taking a stand for honest, fresh music-making, The Speckers are known for their lively performances. Nothing beats the way this father and daughters trio drives a flesh and blood audience to near-frenzy.
Get out of the house, have some fun, and support the arts. Doors open at 6:45, and music starts at 7 pm.
Band CDs will be available for cash purchase. The Jamaica Town Hall is located on Main Street at 3735 Route 30. Roadside parking available. Handicap accessible. Presented by the Jamaica Community Arts Council, because good music makes people happy.
Tickets are $10 at the door.
