Nicholas Hill (or Hickory to some) suffered a stroke in the beginning of April and has been traveling the long road to recovery since. His family plans to provide for him the best in rehabilitation services. Please support the effort to help Nick on his journey by coming to A Night for Nicholas Hill.
“I have done his radio show a bunch of times. He’s a real fun guy to be interviewed by because he knows a shit ton about music. He’s the kind of guy that really keeps music alive. Musicians need people like Nick – he makes the local musicians feel like they are doing something worthwhile.”

From Anna Coogans Kickstarter :
My name is Anna Coogan. I am a singer, guitarist, composer, teacher, producer, and teen mentor. I am releasing my first album in four years, The Lonely Cry of Space and Time, on April 28, 2017.
In the last four years, I have taught approximately 2,200 voice lessons, toured Europe three times, scored two silent films, produced three albums, spent hundreds of hours writing and playing with my bandmate Willie, and rediscovered my years of classical voice training. I’ve been a sideman for the first time ever, for Johnny Dowd and Mary Lorson. I’ve built some bridges. I’ve burned a few. This record encompasses all of these things.
Amanda Richards covers First There Was a Funeral by Johnny Dowd:
Just can’t resist-here’s a Johnny version:
Come support the Turkey Drive of the Food Bank of the Southern Tier. Tioga Downs Casino will be matching whatever we can raise for the Turkey Drive. We are looking to raise funds for the drive and will not be collecting food items at the event.
Pleased to have a last minute addition to the show. John Dowd will open the show at 9:00 with a solo set. Glad he’s made the time to be part of this benefit. Please help spread the word and we’ll see how many people we can help get meals to this holiday season.
