Phineas and the Lonely Leaves

Based out of Peekskill, Phineas and the Lonely Leaves have a driving rock
force coupled with Americana-indie-folk-swing. Currently gigging in N.Y.C. and throughout Westchester,
Phineas and the Lonely Leaves is a band you do not want to miss.  This is their debut performance at WDFH!

Tim Feeney – lead vocals, guitar

Mike Spinelli – electric guitar, vocals

Tim Cavanagh – bass

Paul Slater – keyboards, vocals

Larry Ohlmann – drums


Giant Cicada

Giant Cicada began
as an extension of the partnership of the upright bass/vocal duo Jon Burr and
Lynn Stein, playing the essence of song and minimalist arrangements. With the addition of violin, guitar, cajon drum, and bowed upright bass, the duo ventured farther
down the paths of pop, dance, world, and jazz and
developed a vibrant new sound.  Some of these fine people have
already performed at WDFH as the Jon Burr Trio and the Lynn
Stein Trio

Jon Burr – upright bass

Jonathan Russell – violin

John Hart – guitar

Carlos “Go-Go” Gomez – percussion

Nick Russo – guitars

Lynn Stein – vocals



Born at a 2003 Woody Guthrie hootenanny, Hope Machine is named after a Woody quote: “About
all a human being is, anyway, is a hoping machine.”
Their music is ever-evolving but always carries a
message of hope, peace, and freedom. Hope Machine is an “official Program” of the Woody Guthrie
Foundation, and returns to WDFH after a performance earlier
this year

Fred Gillen, Jr. –
vocals, harmonica

Steve Kirkman – guitar

… and one never knows who might be joining

Hope Machine are appearing as part of their yearlong tribute to
Woody. Join us for the Westchester show of their “Woody
Guthrie 100th Birthday Tour!”
