"Singer/Songwriters in the Side room" Presents Bonnie Abrams and Allen Hopkins


This blog started out giving you posts of the songwriter’s notes, lyrics, and music for my original songs. As with many things, it has gone in new directions. So, if you just started reading my post and are interested in my original material, here is a link to my Songwriter’s Notes, Lyrics, and Music.

On Thursday, 6/19, Bonnie Abrams and Allen Hopkins will be our performers in the “Side room” at Buffalo Bill’s. Bonnie writes and performs her own songs AND she sings everything from choral music to Broadway show tunes. As "Voice of the Second Generation", Bonnie has performed programs of song and narration from the European Jewish experience at multi-cultural celebrations and Holocaust Commemorations. With Allen Hopkins, who has played bluegrass, blues, Celtic music, and even Stephen Foster ballads on his three dozen acoustic instruments, Bonnie’s versatility is complete. Time spent with Bonnie and Allen is a musical gift. The audience will laugh, clap, sing along, and maybe Even shed a tear.

The concert is free, but we do ask for donations to support our performers. Siobhan has created two CDs, one for each of our two seasons. Each CD contains songs of the performers who appeared during that season. The requested donation for each CD is $10, and the proceeds go to the performers who are playing on the night of the donation. The CDs have gotten good reviews, and we hope they get passed around to let others know about the great talent we have appearing at this venue.

The concert takes place on the third Thursday of every month in the side room of Buffalo Bill’s Family Restaurant and Taproom, 19 Main Street, Shortsville, NY. The show runs from 7 to 9 PM. To learn more about Buffalo Bill’s, check out their site right here:

Connie Deming was our guest in May. To give you a feel of the setting of these concerts, here is a video of Connie doing one of her songs, "Sweet Dancers of the Little Cafe."
