Dynamic duo of Caroline Doctorow and Russ Seeger in a very special show
Singer-songwriter Caroline Doctorow has been called a great champion of American folk music. Her most recent album, Dreaming in Vinyl, reached #2 on the national folk radio airplay charts. She received The Alexander Award from the Long Island Arts Council in 2018, and an official New York State Proclamation honoring her many years of work as a folk singer. In addition to eleven solo albums, Caroline released the first retrospective of the work of ’60s folk icons Richard and Mimi Fariña titled Another Country, which received critical acclaim. She has opened for The Band, Alison Krauss, and Tim O’Brien, among others. Her songs and her voice have been heard on soundtracks on the large and small screen. Caroline is the daughter of the late world-renowned author, E.L. Doctorow.
Russ Seeger is truly a living legend on the Long Island music scene. For a remarkable four-plus decades, Russ, a singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist, has performed at virtually every venue in Nassau and Suffolk Counties, playing acoustic and electric guitars, fiddle and more, singing his songs and uniquely interpreting the tunes of those who’ve influenced him along the way. Russ has two CDs out, Live in Peace and Tracks. He’s made music with such greats as Peter Rowan, Vassar Clements, Paul Siebel, Peter Stampfel, Rick Danko, John Hartford and—the one he’s most proud of—the late, great Levon Helm, who anchored a band with Seeger called the Last Hombres, which released an album, Redemption, in 2003. In Russ Seeger’s world, the melodic pop and social commentary of Ray Davies coexists perfectly with the roots-drenched deep Americana of The Band.
