The Hudson Valley Folk Guild will present a concert of music entitled “Beyond a Simple Folk Song”, Sunday, September 23, 2pm, at the Cunneen-Hackett Arts Center, 12 Vassar Street in Poughkeepsie, NY.
“Beyond a Simple Folk Song” was conceived to be an annual concert of newly created or arranged music that challenges acoustic singer/songwriters to venture out of their comfort zone and stretch their craft beyond the constructs of a song.
This year, a new dimension has been introduced to the annual concert by challenging the composer/arranger to work with a specific theme. For 2018, creative women is the theme each composer and musician will tailor their craft to. To that end, guitar virtuoso, Helen Avakian, will headline this year’s concert. Also featured will be “The Herstonians”, a duo comprised of singer-songwriters Pat Lamanna and Sharleen Leahey and composers Neil Okeson and Kevin Becker.
