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, 9/18, Marc Black will be our performer in the “Side room” at Buffalo Bill’s. Here is a little excerpt from Marc’s biography: “Marc Black is an eclectic folk-rocker who deals with life, and all its social and political challenges…one song at a time. Noted for his “timeless songs, deep grooves and excellent playing”, Marc was inducted into the New York Chapter of the Blues Hall of Fame in June of 2014.
He’s performed and recorded with many luminaries including Art Garfunkel and Rick Danko Richie Havens and Taj Mahal. Levon Helm also invited Marc to play one of the Midnight Rambles. Marc was recently named Folk Artist of the Year on ABC Radio, a winner at the Kerrville Folk Festival and he was chosen to perform with Pete Seeger at the Folk Music Hall of Fame fundraiser last November. As legendary folk artist, Happy Traum, put it, ‘Marc is a master…spreading the joy of music with story and song.’”
Here is a video of Marc doing “I Love You Rachel Maddow.”
Here is a video of Marc doing “Ooh I Love My Coffee.”

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 concerts take place on the first and third Thursdays of each 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:

Steve Piper was our guests in August. To give you a feel of the setting of these concerts, here is a video of Steve doing one of his songs, ”See These Days Unwind.”
