More about the performers:

Frune (Frank Celenza) – Singer/Songwriter – Unique and eclectic musician and blending of musical styles

Steven Schmidt – Local Poet             

“Friends on the Journey” – (Lora Kendall, Vinny Crici, & Suzanne Ernst) – Trio Songwriters

Friends on the Journey is a trio of three friends, singers and songwriters and accomplished instrumentalists, who have known each other for years. Lora and Vincent performed for many years as half of the great Americana band, “Tornado Alley,” and each has performed with various other bands, in the studio, and as solo performers. Suzanne has performed primarily in a solo capacity at various venues on Long Island. All three are members of the ISS, Island Songwriters Showcase.

Friends on the Journey is a band of striking harmonies and intricate musical arrangements of original songs with a few covers sprinkled in the mix.  These three are no ordinary composers…Their lyrics are thoughtful, their melodies are memorable.

The only thing you need do to join these friends on their journey, is   …..listen and enjoy.
