The ACMA is happy to once again be partnering with The Alliance for the Arts to present monthly Americana music concerts at the GreenMarket outdoor stage on the Alliance grounds.
The first concert of the season will be Sunday, Oct. 24 at 4 p.m. with Rod MacDonald.
Rod MacDonald is an American singer-songwriter, novelist, and educator.
He was a big part of the 1980s folk revival in Greenwich Village clubs, performing at the Speakeasy, The Bottom Line, Folk City and the “Songwriter’s Exchange” at the Cornelia Street Cafe. He co-founded the Greenwich Village Folk Festival. He is perhaps best known for his songs “American Jerusalem“, about the “contrast between the rich and the poor in Manhattan” (Sing Out!), “A Sailor’s Prayer,” “Coming of the Snow,” “Every Living Thing,” and “My Neighbors in Delray,” a description of the Sept. 11 hijackers’ last days in Delray Beach, Fla., where MacDonald has lived since 1995.
His songs have been covered by Dave Van Ronk, Shawn Colvin, Four Bitchin’ Babes, Jonathan Edwards, Garnet Rogers, Joe Jencks, and others.
Tickets are $16. Visit for details.
