Friday, November 15 at 8 PM

Alice Howe and Freebo perform next at the coffeehouse. These two create a memorable evening of music, uniting a folk-rock-blues legend with a young artist becoming well known in the national folk scene.

With her soulful, impeccably tuned voice, Alice Howe is “up there with the very best of Mary Chapin Carpenter, Gretchen Peters and Dar Williams” ( Her song “Homeland Blues” debuted as #1 on the April 2017 Folk-DJ chart, and this past May she released her first full-length album, Visions, produced by Freebo.

From world renowned bassist (Bonnie Raitt, CSN, John Mayall, Maria Muldaur, Ringo Starr, Neil Young, Dr. John, Loudon Wainwright) to award-winning singer/songwriter,  folk-rock Blues icon Freebo‘s music touches your heart with songs of life, love, dogs, and the human condition. He is well-regarded for his high level of musicality coupled with his thoughtful and powerful use of words in song lyrics as well as in prose and narrative. He has also appeared on the classic TV shows Saturday Night Live, Midnight Special, The Tonight Show and in concert with the legendary Spinal Tap.

Our Times Coffeehouse is in the Ethical Humanist Society building, 38 Old Country Road, Garden City, two miles west of Meadowbrook Parkway next to the blue water tower. For more information, call 516-741-7304.
