For twelve years and hundreds of performances, art & music promoter, Tony Falco, presented some of the most respected and creative artists working in music today, in what became a legendary private concert venue over the magnificent barn he’d built behind his home.
On November 27, 2009, The Falcon opened the doors to its new home, listening room and art gallery; a 19th century factory building perched over Marlboro Falls at 1348 Route 9W, Marlboro NY. Here it will continue to present the most well regarded musicians in traditional & contemporary jazz, blues, soul, folk, world, rock, big band & chamber music.
The Falcon welcomes everyone, with no cover charge, no minimum, no tickets. Those who can are encouraged to feed our donation box, a symbol of democracy in the arts. This fund goes directly to the performing musicians, demonstrating our respect & gratitude for their skill, contribution and livelihood.

A singular voice in an astounding range of musical contexts, Don Byron explores widely divergent traditions while striving for what he calls “a sound above genre.” As clarinetist, saxophonist, composer, arranger, and social critic, he redefines every genre of music he plays, be it classical, salsa, hip-hop, funk, klezmer, rhythm & blues, gospel, or any jazz style from swing and bop to cutting-edge downtown improvisation.
Since the early 90s, Byron has been consistently voted best clarinetist by leading international music magazines. Acclaimed as much for his restless creativity as for his unsurpassed virtuosity as a player, he has presented a multitude of projects at major music festivals around the world.
Among the numerous bands he has fronted are Bug Music, Music for Six Musicians (a klezmer ensemble), and an R&B band dedicated to Junior Walker’s music. He currently leads three bands: a quartet, the Ivey-Divey Trio, and the New Gospel Quintet.
His countless collaborations range from the Duke Ellington Orchestra to Daniel Barenboim and from Salif Keita to Allen Toussaint. He has composed and arranged music for chamber ensembles, dance, and film, including soundtracks for the documentaries “Strange Fruit” and “Red-Tailed Angels,” and has acted in films directed by Robert Altman and Paul Auster.
As artistic director and artist-in-residence, Byron has produced distinguished concert series for the Next Wave Festival at the Brooklyn Academy of Music and at New York’s Symphony Space. A gifted teacher, he has led residencies at universities, including Harvard and Columbia. Byron’s discography comprises a dozen albums for mostly Blue Note and Nonesuch Records.
