Join us for a fun evening of jazz, swing, and folk music with Amy Kucharik and Greg Toro!
Amy Kucharik [/kuh-CHAR-ick/] energizes swing dances, festivals and listening rooms alike. Amy performs as a one-woman band with ukulele, tenor guitar, foot percussion, mouth trumpet and harmonica, or with bands featuring top New England musicians.
Combining poignant lyrics and a danceable swing, Amy’s music has drawn comparisons to Maria Muldaur, Lake Street Dive, and Anais Mitchell. She draws from blues and Vaudeville traditions, musical theatre, 80s pop and contemporary folk music with a street-smart stagecraft honed in the subways of Boston. Amy was a winner of the prestigious Kerrville New Folk songwriting competition and a formal showcase artist at SWRFA in 2015, WFMT Folk DJ Rich Warren’s pick for the NERFA DJ showcase in 2016, and a Falcon Ridge Folk Festival Emerging Artist for 2018.
Her second full-length album of original music, "Until the Words Are Gone," was released in 2018. She has headlined, performed and taught at ukulele festivals including Flower City in Rochester, NY and the Gaithersburg Ukefest in MD. She is a Mi-Si Electronics performing artist.
At the Lunenburg Library, Amy will be joined by bassist Greg Toro. a graduate of Berklee College of Music. Visit her website for more information: http://www.amykucharik.com/
