Grand Folk Railroad brings on the fun with a quirky, eclectic/eccentric mix of forgotten favorites, 60s and 70s pop gems, one-hit wonders, old-school country, contemporary folk, and the inspiring songwriting of lead singer Susan Schwartz-Christian. With a make-every-note-count approach to performing, a vast eclectic repertoire, and questionable regard for musical traditions, Grand Folk Railroad blurs the lines between pop, rock, folk and singer/songwriter genres.

Along with four other great acts, GFR will be performing a set of mostly original music in a welcoming room at the Moriches Community Center. Proceeds go to support the Center, so come on out and enjoy a musical afternoon. Starts at 2PM.

May 20-22   MONTAUK MUSIC FESTIVAL, Montauk, NY 

GFR will be heading out to the Montauk Music Festival after a 2-year layoff due to... well, we all know what happened. Now it's time to get back into the swing of things. And we mean to have everyone dancing and singing along for three wonderful, perfect Montauk days! If you've never been to the festival, we highly recommend you book yourselves a place to stay and join GFR and the other 100-or-so acts that perform all weekend long, in the bars, coffee shops, restaurants, outdoor stages, sidewalks... just about everywhere. It's a blast!

July 30   PORT PALOOZA, Port Jefferson, NY 

This is the second annual Port Palooza, a day-long music celebration in Harborfront Park, Port Jefferson, NY. The view of the harbor is spectacular, the park is beautiful, and GFR is so happy to be part of the fun again. The festivities begin at noon and go on until dusk.
