“From my perspective John is a one of a kind “time traveler”: A great song writer with a sense of humor, singer with range and a wonderful timbre in his voice, great guitar player, great slider-guitar player and the best rack harmonica player I have ever heard – A Band in a Box!. I have always believed that there are obscure and extraordinary America music styles of the past that fully deserve our contemplation. Johnny will take you there! John Long is a National Treasure”. Al Blake
John dedicates his playing to “Homesick James Williamson, Richard Innes, Randy Chortkoff and all the ‘forgotten’ blues artists without whom he and others wouldn’t be playing blues music today”.

It has been quite a year. In March, we were forced to pause classes, productions, and presentations because of COVID-19. But we quickly implemented COVID safety protocols, including health screenings, enhanced circulation, and personal protection equipment. After a successful and healthy fall season, our plan is to launch spring classes in March 2021. We hope to be able to bring performances to you later this spring, depending on the status of the virus and the state’s latest mandates.
In many ways, we are in the fight of our lives. NY State has slashed their funding. Local school districts are not able to renew programming contracts. Families cannot afford as many classes or tickets. Because of safety restrictions, we are able to only host eight students per class and 40 audience members per performance, lowering our ability to earn income.
We want to come back strong this spring. But frankly, we need your support.
We know this is a very challenging time for all of us. But together, we can face our challenges, turn the page, and come back together again. Your support means so much to us.

We celebrated the local legacies of Susan B. Anthony, Mary Hubbard, and the Women’s Suffrage Movement. NY Assemblywoman Carrie Woerner, unveiled a new history marker from the William G. Pomeroy Foundation in front of the Hall denoting the Women’s Suffrage Convention held at Hubbard Hall with Susan B. Anthony in 1894. We toasted with a glass of champagne in celebration of Mary Hubbard and Susan B. Anthony, and then went into the Hall to watch The Susan B. Anthony Project, a new play with original music by Bob Warren about Susan B. Anthony, Mary Hubbard and the legacy of the Suffrage Movement today. This new play was created with over 250 public school students in Cambridge, Greenwich, and Hoosick Falls, who attended in-school workshops with Hubbard Hall teaching artists to learn and write about Susan B. Anthony, the Movement, Sojourner Truth and women’s rights today.
Our new history marker was funded by the William G. Pomeroy Foundation. The Susan B. Anthony Project was funded by the NY State Council on the Arts and sponsored by Anderson Firm PLLC.
