Our next concert at The Borderline will take place on Sunday afternoon, February 17th at 2:00 PM. The venue is the New City Volunteer Ambulance Corps located at 200 – Congers Road, New City, NY 10956.
Our featured entertainer will be CRAIG BICKHARDT, singer songwriter to the stars. Marybeth D’Amico will open.
Craig Bickhardt has written songs for many famous entertainers such as Johnny Cash, Kathy Mattea, BB King, Janis Ian, Art Garfunkle, Jonathan Edwards, and Tony Rice. He is a master at his craft. He is also a fabulous entertainer as well as a virtuoso on the Guitar. He was the originator of the format "songwriters in the round" used by many folk clubs today. Craig is a native of Philadelphia who lived in Nashville for many years and then returned to his home area where he now lives. Dreams, heartaches and hard-earned lessons have fed his creativity. Here is what he says about himself.
"What I need in order to begin a good song is some irritant, some experience or feeling that gets lodged inside of me until I can't be rid of it any other way. We need great patience to write great songs. We must trust to the currents and wait for the event that places in us the seed of a genuine pearl. I think of my work as a ‘Please Touch’ museum – I want my songs to be sung until they’re worn out.”
Opening the show will be the lovely Marybeth D'Amico from Jersey City, NJ who spent many years performing in Germany. You will love her original songs and the energy with which she performs them.
As usual admission is $20 per person ($15 for Borderline & Pinewoods members) plus we ask you to bring a cold potluck dessert dish to share with 4 other people. We will provide coffee, tea and soft drinks. Please remember that we are an alcohol free venue.
