The Lantern Sound Recording Rig's First Post-Covid House Concert!

GEORGE MANN returns for a twin bill of musical performance by Miller Place High School Alumni, with Mick Hargreaves performing an opening set.

Saturday June 3rd In the SWAGS garden cocktail lounge at the Lantern Sound Recording Rig

6pm happy hour - 7pm show
$10 - $20 suggested donation // Rain Or Shine
Refreshments and snacks, BYOB and food AOK.

A former union organizer and activist based in Ithaca, New York, GEORGE MANN sings songs from the last century of the labor and social justice movements, and his own songs are powerful and funny takes on the state of the nation. His concerts are part sing-along, part history lesson, and he can make you shout for joy, send chills down your spine or bring tears to your eyes in the same set.


MICK HARGREAVES is the owner and proprietor of the Lantern Sound Recording Rig (LSRR), a sprawling hundred-year-old farmhouse recording studio located in the pine barrens of Long Island NY, where he records both his own records and that of a lengthy list of area artists. His single "See What You Can Make With This" was released on all streaming platforms in April 2023, and the 22-song "Hank Williams Uncovered" compilation on Paradiddle Records released May 12 2023 features Mick's take on the song "Half as Much".
