On June 7 at the Nanuet Public Library at 149 Church Street, from 1 — 4 p.m., The Borderline Music Club will give the audience the inside story and superb songs of the humorous, self-effacing and prodigiously talented Steve Katz.
Katz won three Grammies and three major Downbeat Awards with “Blood, Sweat and Tears,” “The Blues Project” and “The Even Dozen Jug Band.” He went on to produce records for Lou Reed and then became vice president of Mercury Records. Along with these great accomplishments, he also directed Green Linnet Records, the foremost label for traditional Irish music in America.
Rick Ilowite, described as a premiere fingerstyle folk/blues guitarist without puritanical blinders, will be the opening act. Ilowite plays the blues, ragtime and gospel music of legends Blind Blake and the Reverend Gary Davis. He also plays his own songs. Ilowite has shared stages with Dave Van Ronk, Jorma Kaukonen, Danny Kalo, Rick Danko and Tom Chapin.
