Tribes Hill Presents: Kindred Folk, is a monthly concert series featuring some of the best singer/songwriters and musicians that the Hudson Valley (and beyond) has produced, at the EMBARK | Peekskill performance space, every third Sunday afternoon. With performances by acclaimed songwriters from Tribes Hill membership and beyond, the audience support has been enthusiastic.
Bev Grant is a contemporary folk veteran, a topical songwriter with heart and edge, telling life stories that celebrate South African grandmothers on a soccer team, salute a solitary old man who just won’t leave his mountaintop in West Virginia, the trials of living above a crazy neighbor, and the personal feelings about failed relationships.
Joe McKay is a true NJ original. Joe’s music is deeply rooted in the late fifties and early sixties folk revival. The music of the Kingston Trio, the Limelighters, Bob Dylan and singer/songwriter John Stewart contributed to his traditionally based unique, storytelling style.
Bud Coughlin states: "Studied guitar with Emil DeCosmo, a master of the jazz saxophone; Played my first bar at the age of 14. Jersey City. I’ve played for folks from coast to coast, even once in a Dublin pub and always been well received. Once played a show in Santa Barbara where I was paid with a bag of peanuts. REALLY! PEANUTS! I Did tech work for all the big stars through the 1980’s where I discovered the weekly paycheck."
