Stepping Out

An evening with Marc Cohn

In Concert

Marc Cohn

The singer-songwriter has left indelible mark on the Americana and classic rock musical landscape, continuing to delight audiences with his soulful sound. After winning a Grammy for his ballad “Walking in Memphis,” Cohn solidified his place as one of his generation’s most compelling songwriters, combining the precision of a brilliant tunesmith with the passion of a great soul man. Rooted in the rich ground of American rhythm and blues, soul and gospel and possessed of a deft storyteller’s pen, he weaves vivid, detailed, often drawn-from-life tales that evoke some of our most universal human feelings: love, hope, faith, joy, heartbreak. The troubadour has spent much of his three-decade career travelling the open road with his considerable catalogue of expertly crafted tunes. Moving forward, he continues to do what he does best: infuse American music with both a fresh perspective and a reverence for its deep roots.

Saturday, Jan. 25, 8 p.m. $58, $52 and $46. Landmark on Main Street, Jeanne Rimsky Theater, 232 Main St., Port Washington. (516 ) 767-6444 or

Art Adventures

Draw In Winterfest

Find creative inspiration at Heckscher Museum’s Draw In winter festival. Explore the museum and celebrate creativity during the family event, featuring an array of winter-themed and exhibition-inspired art activities that will appeal to all ages. View “Locally Sourced,” the museum-wide exhibition that brings together painting, sculpture, photography, and works on paper by dozens of artists. It explores the themes of place, dialogue among artists, and landscape, with particular attention to the achievements of  Long Island’s women artists. Spanning the 19th century to the present, the exhibit invites consideration of varied approaches to Long Island’s land, sea, and sky in works by the artists on view. During the event meet Robyn Cooper and join her as she gets back to basics and explores using wooden building blocks as the subject of her paintings. Challenge yourself to design and build, and then do a collage and paint a personal masterpiece. Also make a digital action painting, among other projects.

Sunday, Jan. 26, 12-4 p.m. Heckscher Museum of Art, 2 Prime Ave., Huntington.
