The Mudflats Live in Concert
Friday, September 25, 5 p.m.

The Mudflats band—comprising twin fiddles, banjo, mandolin, guitar, upright bass and drums—has become synonymous with the North Fork music scene. Inspired by the creative melting pot of music that grew out of the southern Appalachian region, where the Celtic fiddle met the rhythms of the African banjo, the Mudflats have created an original sound by adding innovative harmonies and vocals to the pulsing groove of foot-stomping fiddle tunes and songs that touch the heart. The concert is free but limited to 50 guests. The rain date is Saturday, October 3, 4 p.m. Old Point Schoolhouse, 1555 Village Lane, Orient. oysterpondshistoricalsociety.org

Indigenous Perspective Canoe Series

Songwriting Circle Livestream
Sunday, September 27, 8 p.m.

Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center (WHBPAC) presents the first-ever Songwriting Circle Livestream this Sunday. In February 2020, WHBPAC began the Songwriting Circle under veteran musician Fred Raimondo’s expert musical guidance as a way for aspiring songwriters and musicians to take a deep dive into the art of songcraft while meeting likeminded artists in a world-class performing arts setting. Gathering on the WHBPAC Mainstage and having the chance to perform is a once in a lifetime opportunity for any artist. The talented class of singers and musicians have been dedicated to their craft and are excited to showcase their musical prowess in this exclusive performance. Join Fred Raimondo, Greta Quezada, Jeff LeBlanc, Jack Licitra of Jack’s Waterfall and Black & Sparrow for an unforgettable livestream! The free livestream will air on whbpac.org and Vimeo.
