Long Island Museum: Sunday Street Concert Series — Sloan Wainwright, January 21, 2018


Long Island Museum Welcomes

Sloan Wainwright

Sunday Street Series Continues into New Year
January 21, 2018, 3 PM
On Sunday, January 21, 2018 at 3 p.m. the Long Island Museum welcomes Sloan Wainwright, 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.
Sloan Wainwright is at ease in variety of American musical styles — pop, folk, jazz and blues— all held together by the melodious tone of her rich contralto. Her family tree (brother and folk-music luminary Loudon Wainwright, nephew Rufus Wainwright, nieces Martha Wainwright and Lucy Wainwright Roche) reads like a who’s who of contemporary folk music. Sloan’s incredible gift is not only her unique songwriting ability but also her dramatically voiced rendition of original songs. Sloan brings original songs from a new album, Bright Side of a Rainy Day, to this performance, along with her interpretations of songs by Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Paul Simon and others. Sloan will be accompanied by her long-time guitarist and collaborator Stephen Murphy.

Sunday Street Concert 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.
