Songs of Freedom Television with Joel Landy at the Roast N Co open mic / July 2018
Recorded July 12, 2018 aT Roast N Co in Kew Gardens, ny

Songs of Freedom Television was invited to play at the Roast N Co open mic in Kew Gardens, Queens,
on July 12th, 2018.

It was Roast N Co's first musical event at the Kew Gardens space last known as the Expresso Cafe. Prior to that it was known as Odradeks Coffee House, where Songs of Freedom hosted a series of hoots in 2015 and 2016. The musical history of this space goes all the way back to the 1960s when it was known as The Interlude Cafe. Phil Ochs, Dave Van Ronk, Jose Feliciano, Al Kooper and others notable musicians played there.

I want to thank Sam and his crew at Roast N Co for inviting music back into this space in Kew Gardens. I also want to thank Dennis Doyle for organizing and promoting this event giving local artists to practice their craft and share it with their neighborhood community.

Tom Petty Tribute Concert / Fundraiser for MusiCares / December 6, 2017 / Episode 1

Produced by Mike McHugh and Vanessa Lovestone in association with Lori Behrman and Bill Mayer, Wicked Willy's hosted a tribute to the life and music of the late Tom Petty. It was a terrific evening of Rock N'Roll and raised money for MusiCares, a philanthropy that meant a lot to Tom Petty.

Artists who performed included Curtis Becraft and Carla Lyn Hall, Roger Blanc, Paul DeCoster, Heather Eatman, Buddy Grecco, Joel Landy, Michael McHugh, and The Serpentones. This video was the first of two Songs of Freedom Television episodes edited from the event.

More about MusiCares: MusiCares Foundation was established in 1989 and incorporated in 1993[2] by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences. Meant for musicians to have a place to turn in times of financial, personal, or medical crisis, its primary purpose is to focus the resources and attention of the music industry on human service issues which directly impact the health and welfare of the music community. The foundation's programs include emergency financial assistance, addiction recovery, outreach and leadership activities, and senior housing. You can find out more about MusiCares by visiting the following websites: https://www.grammy.com/musicares/prog... - https://www.grammy.com/musicares - https://www.facebook.com/MusiCares

Joel Landy / "Remembering Phil Ochs" at the 2017 New England Folk Festival

Hosting an hour devoted to the life and music of Phil Ochs is something I get to do at the New England Folk Festival. The 2017 NEFFA session was a sweet and memorable one. Thank you to everybody who came to sing and remember Phil Ochs. Special thanks to Steve Suffet for sharing a song and a story about Phil, who left us too soon and whose songs are as relevant today as when he wrote them.

The Third Thursday in February brought Larry Block to the Odradeks Coffee House stage.
