LIM: Sunday Street Series w/ Abbie Gardner & Jesse Terry, May 6

Abbie Gardner Performs Live at LIM 

Jesse Terry Opens Sunday Street Concert

On Sunday, May 6 at 5 p.m. Abbie Gardner and Jesse Terry celebrate new releases at the Long Island Museum as part of the Sunday Street Concert Series, presented by WUSB-FM and The Greater Port Jefferson-Northern Brookhaven Arts Council.
Abbie Gardner is a fiery dobro player who is a founding member of the Americana trio, Red Molly. She is also an acclaimed songwriter whose tales of love and loss, both gritty and sweet, are propelled by her impeccable slide guitar playing.  She rides a wave of praise for a brand new CD, “Wishes on a Neon Sign,” featuring 12 original songs and co-writes with Chris Stapleton and David Olney.  While she channels Lucinda Williams and Bonnie Raitt, she remains pure Abbie. (

Jesse Terry makes his debut in the Sunday Street series as he shares songs from his new stripped-down “Natural” album (with contributions from Dar Williams, Liz Longley and others) as well as his full-band album.  “Stargazer” released in 2017.  A native of Stonington Connecticut, Jesse’s songwriting, with themes of travel and homecoming, and sorrow and redemption, mirrors an amalgam of influences from Abbey Road to Nashville to Laurel Canyon.  “A force to be reckoned with,” says WFUV’s John Platt.

Sunday Street
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.
