Come join the Borderline Folk Music Club for their annual picnic and free folk festival in a tribute to the late Leonard Cohen in beautiful Germonds Park in Rockland County, NY 

An esteemed cast of musicians have been selected by the club to pay tribute to the influential songwriter Leonard Cohen, who passed away in late 2016. At least 25 of his songs will be presented between noon – 6 pm with professional sound on a mobile stage.
Artists performing a mix of Cohen’s songs and their own material include (in order of appearance); The Whispering Tree, Anne Price, The Palisades, Loretta Hagen, Peter Calo, Ron Renninger, Josh Joffen, Terry Kitchen, Mara Levine, Jerry Korobow, Banjo Nickaru & Western Scooches, Judy Kass, Kate Copeland, Jeremy Aaron, Pat Harper, Tom Cardullo, John Guth and Leo Harmonay, with Cohen’s most famous song “Hallelujah” as a sing-along finale! There will also be a Jam tent all day for those wishing to participate in playing and singing, led by Jerry Korobow.

Bring your own picnic lunch, lawn chairs and blankets.
Craft vendors will be on hand and food will be available at the Park concession stand. 

Weather cancellation will be decided by 9 PM and info will be posted after 10 pm the evening before the event. Check our facebook page at www.facebook.com/groups/borderlinefolkmusicclub or go to www.borderlinefolkmusicclub.org
