Ira Perlman - Folk and Roots Music
LI based Folk Singer and a Past President of the Folk Music Society of Huntington.
Unlike the modern “singer/songwriter” the focus is on traditional folk music and popular singer/songwriters of the 60s and 70s.
Using six or twelve string guitar and occasionally a long neck banjo set lists will pull from Broadside or Child ballads through songs recorded by Pete Seeger, the Weavers, PPM, the Kingston Trio, Ian and Sylvia, Gordon LIghtfoot, etc.
Ira performs locally on Long Island at open mikes and the occasional individual show as well as with Denise Romas in "Lonesome Traveler" a tribute concert to Lee Hays, the Almanacs and the Weavers.
