The Falcon
1348 Route 9W
Marlboro, NY   See Map
A presentation in The Falcon's continuing series - A Celebration of Black American Culture - to include artistic performance and progressive exploration and exchange.

"The purpose of Negro Manifesto is to motivate constructive dialogue between people who might otherwise not cross paths. I want to bring people together from different ethnic backgrounds, religions, sex, political affiliation, tax bracket, etc. Most people find that they actually have more in common than they do differences." - Dana Murray.

After attending the Berklee College of Music on scholarship, Omaha native, Murray moved to NYC on the advice of jazz legends Max Roach and Victor Lewis. He toured the world with Wynton Marsalis and began gigging with Donald Byrd, Jimmy Witherspoon, Roy Hargrove, Sherman Irby, Marc Cary and Russell Gunn, among others. As a producer, he has worked with local and commercial labels as well as Blue Note Records releases.

Marlboro, NY   See Map
AZTEC TWO-STEP features Rex Fowler & Friends:

As Neal Shulman is on hiatus from touring, after the passing of his beloved wife Karen, Rex Fowler welcomes Steven “Muddy” Roues (Jon Pousette-Dart) on double bass; and Dodie Pettit (Broadway’s “Phantom of the Opera” and “Cats”) on vocals and guitar, to the Aztec Two Step stage. The ensemble will present vintage fan favorites as well as highlights from their newest release “Naked” (2017).

In 1972, Aztec Two-Step burst upon the scene with their self-titled debut album on Elektra Records. Since then Rex Fowler and Neal Shulman have spent a lifetime making music together as the folk/rock duo Aztec Two-Step. Their first album, along with their subsequent albums for RCA Records were staples of progressive FM and college radio and helped to bring the folk/rock music of the 1960s into the 70s and beyond.

Their newest release is simply called “Naked” and it remains true to form - revealing, transcending, and very cool.

Kingston Chapter of the Hudson Valley Folk Guild
Unitarian Fellowship, 320 Sawkill Rd.
Kingston, NY   See Map
If Joni Mitchell and Harry Chapin were to have had a musical "love child", it would be very possible that the child would be Stuart. Like Harry Chapin, Stuart is a vivid and precise lyrical story teller. Like Joni, he often uses a number of arcane open tunings. Combining the two you get vivid story songs with deep and often spiritual affectation and a pleasing melody to help the words sink in. Stuart has been performing for years, with no less than five songs on the legendary Fast Folk album series (now in the Smithsonian). He has also received awards from several song writing contests including (most notably) 10 from the Great American Song Contest. His song "Mom's Guitar" was covered by "Gathering Time" whose album made it to #1 on the Folk charts. Two CDs to his credit and is currently working on a third.

The open mic portion of the evening is a great opportunity for newcomers and seasoned performers with a welcoming, appreciative audience. All styles of music or spoken

Strings Projects in Beacon
with Tim Haufe, Patricia Santos
Acoustic, Folk/Traditional, and Rock (modern)
Howland Cultural Center
477 Main Street
Beacon, NY   See Map
Tim Haufe with Strings: Influenced greatly by the neo-folk music prevalent in the Hudson Valley region where he grew up, Tim Haufe began playing around the area as a solo acoustic act, while maintaining a multi-instrumentalist role for his recording projects. A prolific writer, he has released seven albums. Haufe's music is beautiful, soulful, dynamic, volatile, desperate, and full of hope. This evening showcases his work with a string quartet rather than a traditional rock band.

Patricia Santos is a songwriter and singing cellist who loves many different kinds of music. She draws on her classical training to meld the cello with non-classical styles and loves to continually learn new techniques or find new ways to use old ones. Her own songs range from blues to rock to folk and art-pop, and her debut EP "Never Like You Think" was listed on New York Music Daily's Top 50 NYC Albums of 2015. She is half of the singing cellist duo The Whiskey Girls and is an active freelancer.

Tamara, with producer/songwriter Steve Washington is delivering a fascinating mix of southern soul and modern R&B, combining tough, edgy blues and the sassiness of pop female vocalist.
