WOLFEBORO — Top Long Island, NY-based folk-rock group, Gathering Time, will offers its fourth concert of the 2014-15 season on Sunday, January 11 at 2 p.m. at Anderson Hall, Brewster Academy in Wolfeboro.
From its formation through chance encounters in the summer of 2006, Gathering Time has been energetically embraced by the folk community and continues to capture the ears and hearts of all who hear them. Their appeal is grounded in an eclectic folk, folk-rock sound and vivacious persona, aptly described by the artists themselves. "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 mixed in!"
The trio of Stuart Markus, Hillary Foxsong, and Gerry McKeveny has sparked accolades close to home and farther afield. Wolfeboro Friends of Music board members Carl Crosley and Elizabeth McCrae have heard the ensemble in concert. Crosley, WFOM President, writes "They bring to the stage a special combination of talents. Markus' voice is an incredibly rich vehicle that amplifies any song from the classic ballads such as "Kisses Sweeter Than Wine" to the beautiful original pieces performed by the group and most often written by McGivney. Vocal solos by Foxsong are a guaranteed pleasure, filling the hall with an acoustic experience that for any audience will be a wow moment."
Gathering Time's Long Island based beginnings have expanded to international airplay of their first release, a 2007 remake of Peter Yarrow's "Light One Candle," to Tricentric showcases at NERFA 2009 and 2010 and a Formal showcase in 2011 to an Emerging Artist showcase at Falcon Ridge 2012 at which they were voted "Most Wanted" to return in 2013. Their third CD "When One Door Closes" reached #3 on the Folk DJ charts in January 2014.
Famed New York City folk DJ John Platt is a fan. "I consider them among the finest performers in the New York metropolitan area," Platt wrote. "Whatever the size of the venue, from a house concert to an outdoor festival, Gathering Time has harmonies that can charm the birds out of the trees, strong original songs, and a savvy repertoire of cover songs, ranging from traditional folk to classic rock. They appeal to audiences of all ages."
This is the fourth of eight programs presented by Wolfeboro Friends of Music to people of the greater Lakes Region during its season, which runs from September through May. Tickets are available for $20 at the door; at Black's Paper Store and Avery Insurance in Wolfeboro; or at Innisfree Bookshop in Meredith; by calling 569-2151; or by visiting the website: www.wfriendsofmusic.org. Please note WFOM's special policy: High school students with ID will be admitted free of charge. A child accompanied by an adult ticket purchaser will be admitted free of charge.
