Thread Name: Arrogant Worms & Second Fiddles in New Jersey
The Hurdy Gurdy Folk Music Club will open our new season, in our new home, on Saturday September 15th at 8:00pm when we present "Canada's Clowned Princes of Comedy" - The Arrogant Worms and an exciting old-time string band from NYC - The Second Fiddles.   The concert will take place at the Fair Lawn Community Center, 10-10 20th Street in Fair Lawn, NJ.

We are very excited about our move to the new Fair Lawn Community Center. We will present our concerts in the Center's 171 seat auditorium with comfortable theater-style seats, state of the art digital sound and lighting, and a large stage that is very close to the audience creating a cozy environment. Pictures of the site, plus descriptions and music samples, can be found at our new "blog" -

The move was made possible by our new partnership with the Borough of Fair Lawn. We are happy to offer quality entertainment to Bergen County residents at reasonable costs.   Fair Lawn is about 20 minutes from NYC and can also be reached by train! (The FLCC is about 1/2 mile from the train stop). Plenty of free parking is available.

Having the Arrogant Worms as our first headliners is an event that I have been looking forward to for a long time. If you have not heard the Worms, you are in for a treat. Think Marx Brothers with guitars. Their songs poke fun at a variety of "issues" - the plight of shipwreck balladeers, the brutal acts of vegetarianism, Celine Dion, and the culture of their Canadian homeland. They have been entertaining audiences across North America, and we are proud to bring them to Bergen County.

Our opening act is the Second Fiddles, an exciting group of musicians who have been at the front of a traditional music renaissance that is taking place in the NYC area.   The group performs a blend of pre-war blues, old-style country and swing music. They are fun to watch - huddled around a single mic singing in an old-timey style.   

It should be a memorable evening! For more information, please visit our website - . YOu can order your tickets online with a major credit card or Paypal account (you do not need a Paypal account to order.)   With 171 seats, we encourage advance sales. Tickets will be available at the door, and they are also available through mail order.

For more information, you can call our "hotline" -(201)384-1325.
