Roger & Lenny with Mark Yard and John Lynch
Saturday, July 23 at 6:30 pm at at Taconic State Park-Rudd Pond
Roger Cohn and Lenny Sutton bring a fresh perspective to familiar—and not-so familiar—songs from a golden era of pop music. The duo’s musical strength of tight harmonies and straightforward acoustic arrangements with guitar and harmonica deliver spirited covers of songs made famous by The Everly Brothers, Simon and Garfunkel, The Beatles and others, as well as original tunes. Roger & Lenny released “New & Improved,” their second EP in 2021 with six songs—four covers and two originals—that is available at rogerandlennymusic.bandcamp.com.

Mark Yard has been playing guitar for decades. After playing in bands for many years, he now performs as a solo artist. He also hosts a weekly open mic at the Music Lab in Canaan, CT.
John Lynch has been playing bass for 54 years. He started playing the bass violin in the 4th grade and has stuck with it ever since (among other instruments).
