In Concert

John Platt’s On Your Radar

WFUV’s John Platt is back with his emerging artists showcase. He’s featuring a pair of interesting and eclectic singer-songwriter duos, both comprised of performers whose talents could make them headliners in their own right. Mike + Ruthy (Mike Merenda and Ruthy Ungar) are hard touring folk musicians from the Hudson Valley. It doesn’t just mean that they play square dances on old, dusty instruments (which they do), it means they write about the times we live in using sturdy roots music as their bedrock. They host their own festival (homeofthehoot.com) and have miles of touring under their belts, supporting an extensive catalog of critically acclaimed original music. Their performances range between whisper-soft intimacy and rafter-raising hoedowns. Also on the bill, Bluebirds of Paradise give the ever-popular guy/girl duet band a new twist. Singer/songwriters Ari Hest and Chrissi Poland created this scintillating duo, an infusion of jazz, indiefolk and pop steeped in Brazilian overtones.

Friday, March 23, 8 p.m. $25. Landmark on Main Street, Jeanne Rimsky Theater, 232 Main St., Port Washington. (516) 767-6444 or www.landmarkonmainstreet.org.
