Don Bikoff And Friends In Concert

Glen Cove’s own acoustic guitar artist, Don Bikoff, who has appeared at Port Washington’s Landmark on Main Street, Manhattan’s The Living Room and Riverhead’s Vail-Leavitt Music Hall, presents a concert at Congregation Tifereth Israel (CTI) in Glen Cove on

Saturday, March 1 at 8 p.m. The concert Don Bikoff and Friends, is also a release party for Bikoff’s latest album, Hallowed Ground. The concert and party are open to the public and will be announced on New York public radio station, WFMU. Appearing with Bikoff are fellow guitarists Mark Fosson and Matt Sowell. The performers will be presented in an elegant cabaret setting featuring a dessert buffet and cash wine and beer bar during intermission.

 

At only 19 years old, Bikoff released his first recording, Celestial Explosion, a collection of finger-picking acoustic guitar solos heavily influenced by Delta blues, American folk and Eastern classical music. Last year this album was reissued as a result of several of its tracks being included in WFMU’s playlist. The re-release of Celestial Explosion launched a major revival of Bikoff’s musical career, one he had almost abandoned 40 years ago. His second album, Hallowed Ground, has just been released.

 

Joining Bikoff for the concert are guitarists Mark Fosson and Matt Sowell. Fosson, a 12-string guitarist who is also a songwriter, was based on the West Coast where he recorded several albums. Fosson’s Jesus On a Greyhound, a solo recording project for Otis Records, has been compared to such American musical legends as Ramblin‘ Jack Elliott, Joe Ely, John Prine and Guy Clark. Some of Fosson’s work from the late 1970s for guitar icon John Fahey’s Takoma Records was released in 2006 in Drag City Records’ The Lost Takoma

Sessions. Fosson’s latest release, Digging in the Dust, is on Tompkins Square Records. Matt Sowell, based in Philadelphia, is an American Primitive guitar player who is deeply influenced by the finger stylings of Jack Rose and John Fahey. He combines American blues with ragtime, adding in hints of Indian raga for a sound that is completely his own. He says of Matt Sowell Rags, his 20-track digital album,“This is strictly an instrumental album. There are no multi-track recordings or looping effects used: one guitar, one player.”

News

Sea Cliff author Margaret Gay Malone is one of 11 authors whose short stories have been selected for publication in the Tuscany Press Anthology in 2015. 

 

The story, Jimmy’s Gift, centers around a boy whose generosity and selflessness put him in danger on a brutally cold and snowy day. Malone says it is based on a true story after reading a blurb in Reader’s Digest a few years ago about a 12-year-old boy who walked through the snow to help deliver food baskets to those in need; and it turned out that his family’s name was also on the list of those in need of help in the community.

Members of the Glen Cove Boys & Girls Club and their families will be treated to a scrumptious Thanksgiving meal on Tuesday, Nov. 25, an event that has become an annual tradition for local families. 

 

This will be the 14th year that Andrea Correale, the president of Elegant Affairs Caterers, has donated this festive dinner, which in the past has served more 250 adults and children with a full turkey with all the trimmings followed by the always-fun ice cream bar. 

 

I can’t even believe it’s been 14 years,” says Correale. “And so many of the same people come back year after year.”
