Kingston Chapter: Marc Von Em

June 1 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

The Kingston Chapter of the Hudson Valley Folk Guild welcomes you to our
2023-2024 Coffeehouse Series
on Saturday, June 1, 2024
at the Unitarian Fellowship, 320 Sawkill Rd., Kingston.

Our featured performer is Marc Von Em.


Marc Von Em’s soulful sound is driven by skilled acoustic guitar playing and a rich, dynamic voice.  His original music is a mix of bluesy rock, folk & funk, and more recently early jazz & swing.  Von Em is an accomplished performer whose live shows never fail to entertain.  He appears mostly solo, showcasing his original music on acoustic guitar with a bit of harmonica and other instrumentation sown in.  Occasionally he invites other talents to join him and has lately been incorporating piano, saxophone and upright bass into his live shows to elevate his sound.

In 2022 Marc released his fifth original recording, “Goodbye, Cloudy Sky”.  This album pays homage to The Great American Songbook and is filled with lyrically strong, melodic tunes influenced by early jazz, swing and a little of funk.  Goodbye, Cloudy Sky is currently being spun on folk radio stations across the U.S. and has ranked in the top 50 on the FAI Folk Chart “Top Albums of the Month”.

In addition to writing and performing as an indy artist, Von Em is currently signed to Pure Pop Music Publishing Inc. as a songwriter for current and up and coming musical acts, VAMNation Entertainment Management as a vocalist on globally broadcast commercials, and HAUS Music NYC, collaborating with musicians, composers, producers, bands & publishers scoring soundtracks for movie and commercial use.

Marc is proud to have shared the stage with Rob Thomas (Matchbox 20) as a backing vocalist and guitarist for 10 years and three world tours.  He has also shared the stage with or opened for: Michael McDonald, Richie Havens, Martin Sexton, Rusted Root, Psychedelic Furs, Kansas, Blue Oyster Cult, Lucy Kaplansky, Glen Tillbrook, Charlie Musselwhite,  Herman’s Hermits and many more.




Open mic performances will be available for all.
Signup begins at 7pm and open mic begins at 7:30pm.
The featured performance is expected to begin at approximately 8:30.

Cost of admission for this event is $7 ($6 for Folk Guild members and seniors)
