The Borderline Folk Music Club today features "Stout" and Mara Levine in concert at the New City Volunteer Ambulance and Rescue Corps in New City.
This is Borderline's last concert before taking its Summer break for the folk festival season.
Borderline organizer Sol Zeller says Stout is a five-piece string band from Staten Island that does all types of historical American and Irish music, but specializes in music of the sea with an emphasis on Sea Shanties.
"There are plenty of choruses for all of you to join in on," Zeller said. "It will be a lively performance of two 45 minute sets."
Mara Levine is the folk songstress from central New Jersey. She is set to open the show with a 40 minute set of traditional as well as contemporary folk songs. Zeller said Levine will be joined on stage by "some very well known mystery artists who have played our venue recently."
The show starts at 2 p.m. at the ambulance corps, just across from Clarkstown North High School at 200 Congers Road, New City. Admission is $20 per person ($15 for Borderline members) and the clubs asks that participants bring a cold pot luck dessert dish to share with four other people.
The Borderline features folk musicians from throughout the metropolitan area and recently has featured nationally-known folk musicians. In addition to hosting events at the New City Ambulance Corps, the group also hosts shows in which folk musicians perform min-concerts in the homes of Borderline members.
