James O'Malley is regarded as one of the most respected of contemporary folk artists in this region. An eloquent performer and celebrated songwriter, audiences who've experienced his concerts are embraced by a warm and powerful performance. He has performed for years and has released 3 CDs on his own label. James is a New York native and lives in Center Moriches, N.Y. and enjoys the intimacy of library settings. ...His artistry goes beyond the songs, having seen James perform many times, I am beginning to appreciate how each song is a loving relationship for him, like a child, he never seems to tire of bringing each one to life for the audience. We are always mesmerized. Thank you... Laura Jones - Jones Review

Edgecomb, Diane New Age Gawain and the Green Knight History,
Literature- Other,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
A Mischievous Medieval Romp! Diane Edgecomb accompanied by Margot Chamberlain – Celtic Harp. The stakes are high for Arthur’s men’s group. First, into their midst, comes a bungee-jumping Green Man who delivers an ancient macho challenge. Then a mysterious rider gallops off with his head under his arm, taunting Gawain to follow. But the greatest fun comes when three very different female archetypes use their wiles in an attempt to corrupt Gawain’s new age virtue. Welcome to New Age Gawain and the Green Knight, Edgecomb’s hilarious send up of the men’s movement. Loosely based on the 14th century poem Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, Edgecomb’s comedic adaptation has New Age Arthurian knights running for their therapists faster than you can say Litigation! Tom Megan’s score provides a lush atmosphere of sound as we journey along the ‘road less traveled by’ in this fun loving tale.. This 50-minute performance can be combined with other seasonal tales for a longer wintertime program or stand alone as entertainment for any time of year. Appropriate for audiences ages 12 and up. This unusual New Year's tale is available in December and January. Humorous and entertaining parody - Booklist Magazine
