Long Island Museum: Songwriter Tom Russell, April 29, 5 PM

Tom Russell Performs Live at LIM

On Sunday, April 29 at 5 p.m.



Tom Russell, one of America’s great songwriters, returns to Stony Brook with a wealth of new songs from “Folk Hotel,” an album cited by many radio programmers as one of 2016’s best releases. Tom performs as part of the Sunday Street Concert Series presented by WUSB-FM and The Greater Port Jefferson-Northern Brookhaven Arts Council.

The Boston Globe has called Tom “the most powerful voice on the contemporary folk circuit.” Mike Regenstreif of the Montreal Gazette says Tom is “the best songwriter of my generation,” who “raises and sets the bar for contemporary singer-songwriters.” David Letterman featured him many times on Late Night, and Tom’s album releases have been regarded as “one masterpiece after another.”
Tom will perform new songs as well as fan favorites from his previous releases, “Play One More,” an homage to the songs of Ian and Sylvia, and from his epic folk opera, “The Rose of Roscrae.” Advance tickets on sale through Friday, March April 13 at sundaystreet.org. If available, regular-priced tickets may be purchased at the door. Please call the museum at (631) 751-0066 the day of the show to confirm ticket availability. Museum exhibitions close at 5 p.m. and are not included with concert ticket.
Sunday Street 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.
