My friend Andy Revkin - a Garrison, N.Y. resident, writer, educator and longtime Guinan's patron - recently released his first CD called "A Very Fine Line." It's a collection of 10 songs recorded with some contributions from extraordinary local musicians, among them Dar Williams, Art Labriola, the Motherlode Trio, Al Hemberger, Bruce Molsky, and Eric Starr, among others.
The video above is a rendition of his song about Guinan's set to photos by the uber-talented Hudson Valley photographer, Christine Ashburn. Many of the photos were shot during the "Irish Night" musical sessions that occurred every Thursday after the full moon.
Andy is a guy of many talents, and he explains his segue into the music world in this write-up here. You can find he entire CD on Amazon and download on iTunes or from Andy (just $7) here.
On Sunday evening (Dec. 22nd), Andy is hosting a CD celebration and musical jam with many of the contributing musicians at the Dogwood Bar & Grill in Beacon, NY.

Is this the next chapter for the old Guinan's building? Here's the latest story. The proposal is a long way from reality (just take a look at the condition of the building!) but at least there are folks willing to give it a shot.
