Gathering Time with Mara Levin at Garden Stage

sponsored by The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Central Nassau
223 Stewart Ave, Garden City NY
 
June 5, 2015 - 8:30 pm
open mic - 7:30 pm
 
Gathering Time is like a high-energy Peter, Paul & Mary or a co-ed Crosby, Stills & Nash, with various parts of The Byrds, Joni Mitchell, the Eagles and America; a head-turning folk-rock harmony trio described as "getting a whole beehive-full of buzz" on the northeast regional folk scene.
 
Stuart Markus, Hillary Foxsong, and Gerry McKeveny are known for "harmonies that can charm the birds out of the trees" and "having a ball on stage!“
 
Gathering Time's 2007 remake of Peter Yarrow's "Light One Candle" has been spun on stations ranging from NYC's top-rated WCBS-FM to Israel's Galilee plains; their 2008 CD "Songs of Hope and Freedom" won wide acceptance on folk stations nationwide. In 2012 the trio's second CD "Red Apples and Gold" rose to #5 on the Folk DJ charts in September and to #12 on the national Roots Music Report radio charts in October, charting at #76 in the year-end Top 100 Albums. Their third CD "When One Door Closes..." reached #3 on the Folk DJ charts in January 2014.

Mara Levine - Called "one of the best singers of her generation" by Christine Lavin, Mara Levine creates beautiful interpretations of folk songs. Nominated by Ron Olesko in 2009 for the Suzi Wollenberg Folk DJ Showcase at the Northeast Regional Folk Alliance (NERFA) Conference, her debut CD, Mara's Gems, ranked #52 on the Folk DJ chart that year. Her second CD Jewels and Harmony reached #1 on the Folk chart January 2013 and finished #3 overall for 2013. Since then, Mara has had two #1 songs on the monthly chart -- her version of Bob Franke's 'Straw Against the Chill,' with Joe Jencks, and her arrangement of Paul Simon's 'Leaves That Are Green,' with Gathering Time.
