Co-sponsored with Bellport Village and being held at the Bandshell.

The concert is to be rescheduled for Saturday, September 3rd at 8pm at the Bandshell.

The New Students perform original songs in an eclectic blend of folk, roots, bluegrass and Americana traditions. Tight three-part vocal harmonies, skilled acoustic instrumentation, and thoughtful lyrics make up their signature sound that has been delighting East Coast audiences for over a decade.  Together they have recorded three studio albums of original songs and one “almost live” album recorded remotely while in quarantine in 2020. In coffee houses, concert halls and Broadway stages, the members of The New Students have collaborated with the likes of Peter Yarrow and Noel Paul Stookey (Peter, Paul and Mary), George Grove (The Kingston Trio), and Elvis Costello.

Combining poetry with conscience, humor with integrity, and—most of all—classic with modern, The New Students evoke the pioneering spirit of the 1960s.  Truly, they are new students of an old school.
