A Special Emerging Artist Co-Bill Featuring:
The Levins and Frank Lombardi
Sat Nov 8 @ 8pm
The progeny of a long line of musicians, Frank Lombardi grew up surrounded by music. With music in his DNA, it’s no surprise that this South Jersey native is making a name for himself as an emerging talent on the folk/acoustic scene. While Frank’s early influences – folk heroes such as Bob Dylan, Neil Young and Arlo Guthrie, are clearly channeled in his troubadour style, his synthesis of a newer genre of folk-inspired writers – Ryan Adams, David Gray, Wilco, and My Morning Jacket, to name a few — make for a unique hybrid that bridges that gap between generations. Frank finds his songwriting inspiration most often within the scope of imperfection and human failure, perceived within the self or society at large.
Frank is getting noticed: “Power and Virtue” named Song of the Year at Jersey Acoustic Music Awards!
Recently nominated for four (4) Jersey Acoustic Music (JAM) Awards: Top Male Performer, Top Male Vocalist, Top New Male Act, Top Single/EP Release for “Power and Virtue“
His debut album, Whiskey and the Mourning After, is due to be released the day before our show — we will be making a party and You are Invited!

The music of The Levins (pronounced The L’Vins) has both oﬀered a journey and been on one. Their albums recorded with their west coast world folk ensemble have garnered invitations to perform in both Amsterdam and England and their ﬁrst release was distributed by Transcontinental Publications, Spring 2011. They have received songwriting awards for their folk, pop, jewish and children’s music, their EP,-Barely Contained, paved the way to the east coast and they are currently in the midst of creating their ﬁrst full length recording as The Levins folk duo.
New to New York, The Levins have been performing in the Hudson Valley, Catskills, Manhattan, Long Island areas of NY in addition to venturing into CT, NJ, and PA. They are aﬃliated with Tribes Hill, NJ Folk Project, and have been gaining momentum at songwriter showcases at Falcon Ridge, Huntington Folk Festival and area venues. “Catchy original tunes and a truly unique sound for two..but it’s their harmonies that put it over the top…not to mention, they are truly having fun. It’s infectious.”…Paul Siegel, Bozarts.com
The Levins are dedicated to making the world a happier place through music.
