Jim Clare John Dady Cathy McGrath Joe Dady
TUNES BY THE TRACKS will be at the library on Wednesday, Jan 8th, with our inaugural show for 2020...and it's gonna be a humdinger.
Your habitually hospitable hosts, Jim Clare, Cathy McGrath, and Allen Hopkins, are pleased as punch to welcome back a dear friend and Tracker favorite as our Feature:
~ JOHN DADY and Friends ~
John Dady is an icon of folk music in Rochester, the Genesee Valley, and beyond.
His brother Joe left us last May, and he left behind a hole in all our hearts, but most of all, the empty place in his brother John's heart will always be there.
After nearly 45 years as half of the magnificent Dady Brothers duo, many artists would have stepped away.
It's our great good fortune that John's courage and his passion for the music made him decide to carry the Dady flame forward on his own.
John will be bringing two wonderful musicians when he comes, and I can already feel the musical energy.
John Michael Ryan, a young and accomplished traditional Irish musician from Rochester who plays the tin whistle and button accordion. Ryan has said he was inspired to learn to play after listening to the Dady Brothers as a child. Ryan was mentored by Marty O’Keefe, long a mainstay in the Irish music community.
Perry Cleaveland, Perry is a keystone friend of us Trackers. A master of his craft, whether he's playing Mandolin, Fiddle, Guitar, or singing beautiful harmony, Perry lifts every song he plays to a higher level.
He's the go-to guy for all the cool music kids in Rochester, the Finger Lakes and Central New York.
...so all you Trackers...start the New Year on the perfect note, and join us at the library on Jan 8th.
~ THE MYSTERY PICKERS ~
Of course, no show would be complete without the antics, tomfoolery, and delightful music of the bold buskers who fearlessly step into
the spotlight to regale us with a favorite song...often it's one that they actually know.
Wanna give it a try?? Just ask Cathy, Allen, or Jim, and faster than a speeding bullet...you too, will be among the anointed.
