The Second Annual Franklin Place Music Festival took place on Saturday, July 14th in Woodmere. Top acoustic singer/songwriters were in attendance, including Long Island-born Nashville recording artist Dave Isaacs who rocked the crowd with his amazing guitar work and introspective song lyrics. Nearly 100 people gathered at the home of Toby Tobias, local musician and owner of The Tune Tutors, a Woodmere-based music instruction studio. Guests were asked to bring non-perishable food items to be donated to local food kitchens.
“This is the perfect way for me to give back to my community,” Tobias said. “Woodmere has so much to offer. I want to make Woodmere a place where people from all over the Island can go and enjoy good music, are and culture. We have only just begun.”
Other performers from the afternoon included: Kita P from Brooklyn, Lester The Fierce from Australia, Josh Tobias, String Alley, The Toby Tobias Ensemble, The Welldiggers, Katie Pearlman, Steve Robinson and Roger Silverberg.
