Sunday Street Music Series
The Long Island Museum Welcomes
Antje Duvekot & Natalia Zukerman
Sunday, April 2 @ 5 PM
Carriage Museum’s Gillespie Room
On Sunday, April 2 at 5 p.m. the Long Island Museum welcomes Antje Duvekot and Natalia Zukerman, performing live in the Carriage Museum’s Gillespie Room as part of the Sunday Street Music Series presented by WUSB-FM radio and the Greater Port Jefferson – Northern Brookhaven Arts Council.
Recognized with awards from the Boston music scene and the Kerrville Folk Festival in Texas, Antje Duvekot has appeared at the Newport and Philadelphia Folk Festivals, and has headlined concerts at the Celtic Connections Festival in Scotland and the Tonder Festival in Denmark.
Her latest album, Toward the Thunder, “stands proudly with her three previous releases and draws upon the talent of folk luminaries like Richard Shindell and Anais Mitchell to showcase her unforgettable voice and beautifully-crafted songs. (www.antjeduvekot.com)
Of Natalia Zukerman, The New Yorker says that “Natalia’s voice could send an orchid into bloom while her guitar playing can open a beer bottle with its teeth.” The daughter of classical musicians Eugenia and Pinchas Zukerman, Natalia’s folk, jazz and blues influences, and her songwriting expertise are apparent in her performances on guitar, lap steel and dobro.

SUNDAY STREET MUSIC SERIES
The Sunday Street Series began in 2004 at The University Cafe at Stony Brook University, when Charlie Backfish, host of the long-running weekly radio program Sunday Street on WUSB-FM, began presenting concerts with many of the singer/songwriters featured on the program. In its first decade, the series presented 172 concerts with musicians from all over the world performing in an intimate venue. In 2015 the series moved from the University Café to the nearby Long Island Museum, where musicians may take advantage of the museum’s Steinway Boston Grand piano.
