ASTORIA — Join Astoria Makers for an evening of original music and social gathering at our new space in the renovated Van Dusen Building (372 10th St.) Friday, Jan. 26. Doors open at 5 p.m. for a reception hour with the artists; music starts at 6 p.m. The show is suitable for all ages.
The event will be held on the second floor, which will house artist studios and The Commons, a communal space for events and gatherings.
The ticket price includes light hors d’oeuvres, beer/wine/refreshments and a chance to mingle with the artists before the show. Musical guests Hollis Peach, from Ashland, and Lucy Barna, from Astoria, will share the stage with their original tunes and storytelling. While the makerspace is not yet open to the public, this will be the first event hosted in the new space and all are invited to enjoy this special evening of music and socializing.
Hollis Peach weaves evocative, mischievous and deeply personal stories in the American vernacular of song and story. This unassuming yet highly original duo is touring on their debut release, “Sometimes We Feel the Same.”
For Lucy Barna, an artist by nature, music was self-taught and songs began as stories of her journey, often written inside a van, tent or roadside motel room. This story continues through her seasoned songs, creating a palpable experience of the human heart. “It’s a Rose” is her latest collection of original songs.
Tickets are available at eventbrite.com.
