PeaceSmiths Topical, A-Typical, Folk Music, Poetry and Whatever Coffeehouse

This month features..

Music by Sonny Meadows. Sonny takes the stage solo, with his passionate and compassionate presentation as a singer/songwriter. Sonny’s new solo CD is “Tolerance.” Sonny also performs with the Defibrillators and Blacklisted and the Banned. Sonny wrote “Last Church on the Left”, the theme song for the “PeaceSmiths Get Involved!” Public Access TV show, which is a tribute to Susan June Blake and her work for peace and justice.

Maxwell Wheat and Alan Semerdjian (each rock star poets in their own right!) collaborate to share their own poetry, and poems by young people. Alan’s new book of poems is “In the Architecture of Bone.” You can find it: here. Max’s new project is getting the word out that children can write poetry that is literature. Max will read from the book, “Young Voices, An Anthology of Poetry by Nassau County Students” (the book is presented by Nassau County Poet Laureate, emeritus, Maxwell Corydon Wheat, Jr. and edited by Judy Turek.) You can find the book: here.

Bob Westcott is a Folk Legend. He is also a Long Island Music Award nominee.During the 60’s, Bob played in the basket houses of Greenwich Village, then moved to Manchester, England to explore the British Folk Scene. During the 70’s, Westcott traveled throughout Canada and the US. His astonishing finger style guitar work and universally resonant songwriting have made him a perennial favorite on the Long Island scene.  You can find out more about Bob at Not sure if the PeaceSmiths crowd will get a glimpse of Bob Westcott’s alter ego– Bob is also “Pops” of the rockin’ blues band The Defibrillators.
