PeaceSmiths is held at the First United Methodist Church in Amityville.
We call it “The last church on the left.”
Address: 25 Broadway Ave, Amityville, NY (3rd floor)
(Broadway is actually the southernmost end of RT 110
near Merrick Road/Montauk Highway.)

PeaceSmiths Coffeehouse happens the first Friday of the month, from October to June !

More about the performers:

Willow, a women’s interfaith choir whose mission is  to create beautiful music and take it to those who need to hear it, sharing our joy in song: we are women singing together.

Willow is an interfaith women’s choir under the direction of Farah Chandu. They are mothers, grandmothers and great grandmothers, working and retired. They hail from all corners of Queens, Nassau, and Suffolk Counties, and they represent several different faith traditions. They have discovered tremendous common ground in sharing each other’s sacred music. They are professionals and amateurs, and singing together is a labor of love.Willow was founded in October of 1998, when the women’s group of a local UU congregation reached out to the community and sponsored a musical workshop. They knew that they had something worth keeping by the end of that first day, and they have been singing together ever since. In the years since their inception they have found their mission, which is to create something beautiful and life affirming and take it to those who need to hear it. This is their joy. They have carried this joy to concert venues such as hospitals, hospices, nursing homes, schools, churches, synagogues, interfaith gatherings, Brooklyn Federal Court and The United Nations Headquarters. They use their music to actively work for peace and for human rights.

Duane Esposito, local poet and professor of English at Nassau Community College. Duane is a community and academic activist and has recently released a collection of his poems in the book called “Declaration for your Bones”.

Pat Killian, singer songwriter and friends (Greg Galluccio and Maureen Shaiman)- Pat has been playing and singing for decades, but  only discovered a talent for songwriting in the last twelve years.  He recorded his first CD, Salt Water, in Nashville in 2006, comprised entirely of songs written by him.  RadioIndy called Salt Water, “An impressive collection of songs about life.”  Two songs on the CD, The Purpose and Daddy’s Blues, were in RadioIndy’s top 40 for all genres for about 2 months. Pat has performed at the Woodlands Folk Festival in Stony Brook, and has been the headliner at the Grounds & Sounds Café at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in Stony Brook on three occasions. Although Pat enjoys singing solo, he gets a lot of joy when he is part of a bigger experience (performing with others).
