      DEC. 2011 & JAN. 2012  

>>>>>>>>>>> NEW VENUE !!!  <<<<<<<<<<<<<

Concerts are Sunday afternoons beginning at 3 PM sharp at historic JOHN STREET METHODIST CHURCH, 44 John Street in Lower Manhattan.

See below for details and directions.

NOTE: The date for this concert is the second Sunday in Dec. – the 11th

Sunday DEC. 11, 2011 – THE NEW YORK PACKET with special guest SUSAN MCKEOWN – We will be presenting Susan McKeown, who won a Grammy award singing with The Klezmatics on their Woody Guthrie tribute album a few years back. A Dublin native, Susan is a world-class singer who draws extensively from her own Irish roots and explores others. She is one of the strongest, most expressive voices to have come out of Ireland – ever. Put this one on your holiday list as a gift to yourself and, even better, bring someone with you to hear this extraordinary singer.

JAN. 7, 2012 – No concert in New York City, but be sure to support the Mystic Sea Music Festival Fundraiser by going to their Chantey Blast Pub Sing from 1-5pm at the Frohsinn Hall German Club –  54 Greenmanville Ave., Mystic, CT (across the street from the main entrance to Mystic Seaport Museum). Suggested donation: $15

JOHN STREET METHODIST CHURCHis at 44 John Street, one block south of Fulton Street and 1-1/2 blocks east of Broadway – very close to all Fulton Street subway train stations (A/C/J/M/Z/2/3/4/5)

Admission is still a very affordable $5 adults / $2 children (more if you can).  The New York Packet will perform an opening set at each concert, singing songs that made the tall shipssail on time.

The New York Packet’s Maritime Music Concert Series is co-sponsored by The Folk Music Society of New York
