At Hammond House for this show only, next month our series will be moving to The BeanRunner Café in Peekskill. One of the earliest surviving colonial farmhouses in Westchester County, Hammond House was built in 1719 by Capt. William Hammond, a Philipse Manor tenant. Col. James Hammond, a younger son of William, commanded the Westchester Militia during the Revolution. Owned since 1995 by Rick Rock, founder of Tribes Hill, Hammond House has hosted house concerts by such renowned artists as Joe Crookston, Pete Seeger, Jane Siberry and the Slambovians. Because of more limited seating, we are asking folks to RSVP. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org .
We're very excited about this more intimate, unplugged (Yay!) setting. This house concert will feature a potluck, please bring food or drink to share.
This month we are presenting:
Tom Heany is a songwriter and guitarist from the Hudson River Valley in New York. His songs call to mind the traditional music of the United States, the classic songs of the '30s and '40s, and the stories we tell when families get together. His CD Reservoir was released in 2018. It's easy to hear Woody Guthrie, Stan Rogers and Paul Brady in his songs (and a little Chuck Berry, too), and Mississippi John Hurt in his guitar playing. Before turning his hand to songwriting, he spent years studying the songs of Jerome Kern, Rodgers and Hart, George and Ira Gershwin, Irving Berlin, Cole Porter and their contemporaries. He says, “Most of what I know about harmony comes from those great old tunes.” Tom is also the author of First, Learn to Practice and Practicing for Parents.
