If song-driven acoustic music is your thing, you’ll want to get to know Folknet, the local nonprofit organization which brings together musicians and listeners who play and enjoy this type of music.
The group kicks off its spring concert season with a local artist showcase and open mic. First, there’ll be a performance by Cleveland singer/songwriter/educator Kate Kooser, a voice teacher at The Music Settlement who has performed at venues such as Nighttown, G.A.R. Hall, the Barking Spider and Brothers Lounge. Also performing are mandolin/fiddler player John Reynolds and guitarist Jack DiAlesandro, who are mainstays of the local roots music scene, performing folk, jazz, blues and swing.
The open mic follows the performance; it’s a good place to get to meet some of the players in the local acoustic music scene. The free evening takes the Church of the Good Shepherd in Lyndhurst.
