On Sunday, Jan. 14 at 4 p.m. join us for "John Flynn" in concert. John Flynn is an American singer-songwriter and activist known for his powerful music and tireless efforts on behalf of "the lost and the lonely, the shackled and scarred". His career has embodied an authentic troubadour odyssey that moved legendary folk DJ Gene Shay to call Flynn "the most quintessential folk singer in my life". John Flynn is worthy of respect as he follows the paths of Woody Guthrie, Phil Ochs, and Kris Kristofferson.

This event is made possible (in part) with public funds from the Decentralization Program and the New York State Council on the Arts, administered through the Community Arts Grants Program by the Greene County Council on the Arts. Tickets are available at the door. A $10 donation is suggested. Please use back entrance.
