Hey, wait a minute...That guy playing guitar with violinist Marka Young looks familiar. Is it...? Indeed, it's James Bacon, the New Paltz Town Justice who read me the Riot Act after I drove a bit too fast.
These two will play on January 23 at the Old French Church, taken care of by the association known as Historic Huguenot Street in New Paltz. The Church sits at 81 Huguenot Street: a nice, laid-back night of warm, comforting music in the confines of this homey location. Yes, this is the oldest continuously inhabited street in America, with seven stone houses built by the original French Huguenot settlers beginning in the 1680s. Their descendants continued to occupy the houses for hundreds of years - like getting a reasonable deal on a Manhattan apartment.
Tickets cost $12 general admission, $10 for Friends of Historic Huguenot Street, $5 for students, and are available from www.huguenotstreet.org, email@example.com or (845) 255-1660.
