Book Reading and Sign by Local Author Lee Seelig “I Love Going To The Butcher”
Huntington Book Revue
313 New York Avenue
HUNTINGTON
5162498200

Local author and owner of Farmingdale Meat Market and Main Street Wholesale Meats, Lee Seelig will speak and sign his new book, I Love Going to the Butcher at a fun, kid-friendly event.

line1line


Lee Seelig, third generation owner of his family’s meat business, brings to life a treasured tradition of journeying to the butcher shop in this fun and heartwarming children’s book. Children tend to look forward to an approaching event — the barbecue with drinks and family and friends and, most importantly, food! But Seelig reminds us that an essential part of the magic comes from the meat market.

Follow a mother and child in an errand-turned-adventure, as they visit the butcher shop on Main Street, full of friendly butchers who share treats and cheerfully show off their slicing and prepping skills of the myriad of meats and cheeses in their shop. They know that the secret to perfect steaks and hamburgers is the artistry of the cut!

Then, it’s on to what we’ve all been waiting for — the grill, where Daddy takes over to create the most amazing smells and tastes. This draws out family and friends who gather in the backyard, eating and laughing and telling stories.
Mr. Seelig’s is a sweet story that reminds us to cherish the little things — like a juicy burger, a yard full of loved ones, and sliding under the bed covers with a full tummy.  Read more at ilovegoingtothebutcher.com.

Moving to Paris in 2001, Rupert developed his skills as a singer and performer, formed his own group and released the first of six solo albums to date. The most recent is The Rank Outsiders Ball (2014).

Since September 2006, he has been based in the USA. His music has found a warm reception in America, as he has performed in all 50 states and earned over 30 songwriting awards. His live shows and recordings continue to garner outstandingly good reviews, and have been played regularly by radio stations in the USA, Canada, France, The Netherlands, Germany, Israel and Australia.
In addition to Rupert Wates’ songwriting, he is also a writer of prose fiction and a published author. His most recent book City Of Lights (2014) is a collection of five of his short stories set in Paris.

THE FOLK GODDESSES
Long Island based singer-songwriters and musicians, The Folk Goddesses bring a wisecracking wisdom to every song they play, moving audiences to tears and laughter! In 2010, three of Long Island’s favorite singer-songwriters - Martha Trachtenberg, Judith Zweiman and Hillary Foxsong - were invited to perform together at a house concert. Being a mutual admiration society, they eagerly accepted, and had a great time learning each other’s songs! The concert presenter entitled the evening “The Folk Goddesses” and the show sold out!  When they were immediately approached by other presenters for repeat performances, it dawned on them that they had become a group. As fate would have it, the name was available… and so, our heroines cheerfully accepted the workings of destiny, and became… The Folk Goddesses! Since then, they have performed throughout the New York, Long Island, and New Jersey metropolitan areas, and spread their goddess-like wings into New England, as well.
They have released seven-song EP, recorded live at The Song Box in Seaford, NY, and are finishing up their first studio album, I Am Oak.

6th Annual Patchogue Folk Festival with Tom Paxton and Janis Ian
Patchogue Theatre for the Performing Arts
71 E. Main St.
Patchogue
631-207-1313

6th Patchogue Folk Festival with Tom Paxton and Janis Ian
March 7 at 8:00 PM
Tickets: $28-$64 +fee
6th Patchogue Folk Festival, Part One: Free Long Island Songwriter Showcase
Saturday, March 7 at 2:00 PM
No Tickets are required for Part One Live in the Lobby.

Two of America’s greatest songwriters will share the stage for an evening of stories and songs. Together, Tom Paxton and Janis Ian are powerful and irresistible. Each with ties of the classic Greenwich Village folk scene, Tom Paxton and Janis Ian are nearly a generation apart yet share a slew of folk influences as well as an affinity for fearlessly tackling controversial issues. At 2:00 PM, in keeping with the Patchogue Folk Festival tradition, there will be a 6th Patchogue Folk Festival, Part One: Free Long Island Songwriter Showcase “Live in the Lobby” featuring nine Long Island Singer-Songwriters showcasing the vibrant Patchogue original music scene.

Paxton emerged in the days of hootenannies and wrote his share of what were then called protest songs, but he also wrote songs about love, humorous, and for kids. Many became off-covered standards, including ‘Bottle of Wine,’ ‘Ramblin’ Boy’ and ‘The Last Thing on My Mind.’ At 15, Ian had a major pop hit with the then-provocative ‘Society’s Child,’ a taboo-busting meditation about an interracial romance. She re-emerged a decade later in the mid-70s with her biggest hit the reflective ‘At Seventeen,’ which won a GRAMMY®. She remains an unflinching topical commentator.

JANIS IAN is an American songwriter, signer, musician, columnist and science fiction author. Ian first entered the folk music scene while still a teenager in the mid-1960s. Most active musically in that decade and the 1970s, she has continued recording into the 21st century. She has won two GRAMMY® Awards, the first in 1975 for her song “At Seventeen,” and the second in 2013 for Best Spoken Word Album, for her autobiography, Society’s Child (nearly 40 years later).
   
TOM PAXTON has become a voice of his generation. In describing Tom Paxton’s influence of his fellow musicians, Pete Seeger has said: “Tom’s songs have a way of sneaking up on you. You find yourself humming them, whistling them, and singing a verse to a friend. Like the songs of Woody Guthrie, they’re becoming part of America.”

Tom received a 2009 Lifetime Achievement Award from the Recording Academy during the 51st Annual GRAMMY® Awards. He was nominated for a GRAMMY® for Comedians and Angels in 2007, and Live in the U.K. in 2006. He has received the Lifetime Achievement Award from ASCAP, and a Lifetime Achievement Award from the BBC in London.

6th Patchogue Folk Festival, Part One: Free Long Island Songwriter Showcase Sat. 3/7 2 PM

In keeping with the Patchogue Folk Festival tradition, there will be a FREE show “Live in the Lobby” featuring nine Long Island Singer-Songwriters showcasing the vibrant Patchogue original music scene. Featuring: Hank Stone Band, He-Bird She Bird, Grand Folk Railroad, Anne Crean, Leah Kay, Bill Shuren, Chris Carlozzo, EVT Band and Sim Urivetzky.
