Sloan Wainwright will give a concert at the Middleburgh Library on Sept. 16 at 4 p.m.

Defying standard categorization, singer and songwriter Wainwright consistently demonstrates her easy command of a variety of American musical styles — pop, folk, jazz and blues — held together by the melodious tone of her rich contralto, with the end result being a unique and soulful hybrid.       

A $10 donation is suggested. Tickets are available at the door. Please use the back entrance.

This event is made possible in part with public funds from the Decentralization Program and the New York State Council on the Arts, administered by the Community Arts Grant Program by the Greene County Council on the Arts.
