Hi Friends, On Sunday, January 13th, The Borderline is extremely proud to inaugurate its 2013 concert series with one of one of the all time great singer songwriters of our generation, Bob Franke.
Bob Franke is in an elite class of folk musicians along with the likes of Tom Paxton, John Prine, John McCutcheon, Bill Staines, & Si Kahn. Many of his songs have become classics such as “Thanksgiving Eve”, “Alleluia, The Great Storm Is Over”, “Hard Love”, “Beggars to God”, and “The Acid Polka”. Some of the most famous artists in the folk world have recorded his songs throughout Bob’s 40 year career. Bob Franke has toured throughout the USA, Canada, England, and most recently, Russia. He has recorded 9 albums to date with a 10th to be released in time for our concert.
Bob’s music delivers a message to all of us, one of healing, calm, and serenity with a taste of wit and humor thrown in. As Tom Paxton says of Franke, “It’s his integrity. I always think of Bob as if Emerson and Thoreau had picked up acoustic guitars and gotten into songwriting. There’s touches of Mark Twain and Buddy Holly in there too.” There will be no openers or accompanying musicians for this intimate concert, just Bob and his guitar playing two full sets of his original music for us.
The concert begins at 2:00 PM and will take place at the New City Volunteer Ambulance Corps located at 200 – Congers Road, New City, NY 10956. Admission is $20 per person ($15 for Borderline or Pinewoods members), and we ask that you bring a cold pot luck dessert dish to share with 4 other people. Please remember that we are an alcohol free venue.
Reservations can be made by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (845) 354-4586. You can also visit The Borderline website which is www.borderlinefolkmusicclub.org
See you all on January 13th at 2:00 PM.
