MEMBER SPOTLIGHT Sing Around - Sandra Condry Leading



Member Spotlight Sing Around!

In any month that has more than 4 Tuesdays, we use the 5th Tuesday to highlight some of our talented members.  This is one of those special nights!  We'll be starting the evening with a short performance of several songs from each of 2 performers.  After that, the sing around will continue as usual.

This evening's SPOTLIGHT PERFORMERS are:
Sam Asher

Asher Sam 500sqThough classically trained at Eastman School of Music, Sam is a contemporary folk singer/songwriter at heart. From lullabies to edgy rock, his songs are original, sometimes edgy, and always engaging.

Sam was honored to be chosen in 2008 as the inaugural Artist in Residence for the Rochester-Modiin partnership with Israel, and to be named Artist in Residence for 2010 National Havurah Committee Annual Institute.

 

A longstanding member of Golden Link Folksinging Society in Rochester, NY, Sam has performed with guitar & song (and fiddle) at hundreds of venues, from large concerts to intimate events, and numerous genres, including R&B, country, jazz, latin, Middle Eastern, world beat, and original music.

Sue Hengelsberg

Hengelsberg SueSue has been a member of Golden Link since 1972, when an article about GL appeared in Upstate Sunday magazine. Due to distance from Rochester, and time constraints, she was not able to be very active in the club until her retirement from teaching in 2003, when she served GL as secretary and newsletter editor.  She has attended almost every GL festival. 

Like many GL members, Sue learned guitar from Laura Weber's TV lessons, bought folk records, songbooks and magazines, and later branched out into mountain dulcimer, banjo, bowed psaltery and hammered dulcimer. She began occasional performing when her son was in nursery school (early '70s), and continues to this day. Sue has written many songs about local history, notably the Silver Lake Sea Serpent, and the bridges in Letchworth State Park, and many other topics.

She is a founding member of Wyoming County Bicentennial Singers, who sponsor the group Folk o' the Road, which Sue helped start in 2001. She is also active in the Genesee Valley Mountain Dulcimer Club, and other musical/arts organizations. As a part of Striking Strings Hammered Dulcimer Ensemble of the Eastman Community Music School, Sue performed all over Western New York, on Cape Cod and in parts of Europe. Throughout the Pandemic, she has visited folk music gatherings all over the world, met people she would never have in "real life.
