Warwick NY-based folk/pop duo THE LEVINS are dedicated to making the world a happier place employing uplifting music with exquisite vocal harmonies and lyrics that celebrate our interconnectedness with a lighthearted depth inclusive to all. They're not just accomplished musicians but entertainers with a palpable connection between them which really lifts the material above the norm.
After meeting ten years ago at a Freight & Salvage Coffeehouse open mic in Berkeley CA, Julia and Ira have performed as a duo for audiences large and small, singing for festivals, coffeehouses, clubs and events from California to Amsterdam.
Your musical host JAMES DURST will introduce the evening with a short opening set. James has quietly traversed the planet since 1965, performing for rapt audiences of all ages in all 50 states and 45 countries throughout the Americas, Europe, Scandinavia, the Middle East, Southeast Asia, in Russia, Azerbaijan, Japan, Korea and most recently, several times in India and Israel. He draws from a rich and ever-evolving repertoire of distinctive original and gathered songs in more than two dozen languages that reflect a global perspective and underscore the interconnectedness we share with all of life. With more than a dozen recordings to his credit, he engages each disparate audience in a participatory journey distilled from his travels, bringing us closer to our world and each other.
