Title: Live Music Concert!

Location: Holyoke Public Library, by the Maple Street Doors

at the old Maple St entrance stairs.

MARC Berger has performed at Austin’s SXSW Music Festival, and the Kerrville Folk Festival and has opened shows for Bob Dylan and other national acts. His song "The Last One" was a staple of Richie Havens' concerts. His critically acclaimed current release, RIDE, is a collection of songs all having to do with the romance of the American West.
Marc is also presently in the process of completing FOLK MUSIC, a boundary stretching album of songs based on this Walt Whitman quote: "It is the attitude of the greatest poet to cheer up slaves and horrify despots."
This special concert will include songs from both albums, along with stories about his experiences as an easterner in the mountain and desert West.

**JIMMY RYAN plays mandolin with the old-timey pluck of a bluegrass breakdown, but he also plays it with the ferocity of a rock guitarist. What else would you expect of a left-handed rebel who began his career by playing both in a bluegrass combo (Pine Island) and a punk band (Decentz). That melding of styles made Ryan a pioneer of the so-called 'alt-country” scene in the late ’80s when he founded and fronted the bluegrass-tinged rock band The Blood Oranges.
