presentations to Tanzania, Brazil, Ghana, Costa Rica, The Gambia, South Africa, Russia, Australia, Kenya, and Camaroon, continuing the
tradition of elder folk art stories. Thelma is a founding member of The African Folk Heritage Circle, Inc. and a member of The National

Saturday, January 5, 2018, at 8pm:
Guitarist, percussionist, singer, and songwriter Lonnie Harrington has been strumming, hitting, and singing his way throughout the eastern
U.S. and Canada for more than 45 years, spanning many musical genres, including rock, soul, R&B, worldbeat, and Native American styles.
He has been a member of Grooves of the Hemisphere (with Ruben Gonzalez) and Kandia Crazy Horse's Cactus Rose, and was a guest on Martha
Redbone's album Garden of Love. He also sings regularly with several New York City Native American Drum Groups. His album
Northern Tropicale and Other Romantic Illusions was released in 2017.
De Rosa's style is influenced by classic rock greats, old time blues legends, and unique life experiences, resulting in a deeply
expressive and dynamic Americana sound. Tom grew up in a working class family in Queens and first picked up the guitar in his early
twenties after going blind. He found composing music and lyrics to be a great creative outlet and a significant way to cope with the loss
of his vision. His solo guitar sets are captivating mixes of his own compositions with songs from Dylan and Leonard Cohen.
