Golden Link Members Showcase Concert!



Members Showcase Concert

Whenever there is a 5th Tuesday in a month, Golden Link hosts a Members Showcase Concert instead of the usual sing around.  It will be held at our new concert venue at the Greece Baptist Church, 1230 Long Pond Road.

Rather than in the main sanctuary, this concert will be held in the Parlor, which is the room at the rear of the church.  There is ample parking at the rear. 

$5 Donation suggested at the door, concert starts at 7:30pm.

Joe Lamay & Sherri Reese, With Laurie Leenhouts and John Stevens

Joe LaMay & Sherri Reese met at a Golden Link Singaround in 1998. They were drawn to each other’s music and soon began performing together. It wasn’t long before they gained a reputation for their original songs and old-style harmony, as well as their stage presentation of their favorite traditional and contemporary songs.

It has been said that Joe & Sherri “know a good song and write a good song.” As songwriters, they have had several of their original songs recorded and performed by other folk musicians and bluegrass bands.

LaMay & Reese’s performances are warm, entertaining and enjoyable. They present an eclectic collection of traditional and original songs that are sure to inspire the novice and please the traditionalist. 

Since 2004, LaMay & Reese have been contributing monthly music segments to Bill Knowlton’s Bluegrass Ramble Radio Show. Their twenty-minute segments feature songs and musicians recorded “live” by musicians they meet along the way. The Bluegrass Ramble is aired on NPR throughout the northeast and on the worldwide web.

LaMay & Reese have released nine CDS of their music including a collection of their original songs recorded by various folk and bluegrass miusicians. 

In support of their local music community in the Rochester area, Joe & Sherri host 77 West Main, a new music venue in Macedon, which presents an acoustic music concert series, a songwriters gathering, and more.
