The final concert of the 2018 Songwriters Share Series will take place on Friday, June 1 at 7:30 p.m. - to benefit Maureen's Haven. Job Potter and four local musicians will perform at Unitarian Universalist Meetinghouse of the South Fork during the conclusion of this unique series that gives back to the community - as local songwriters share the proceeds of the concert with a local charity of their choice.

Concertgoers not only support local musicians and local charities, but they also get an inside look at the songwriting process through these talented musicians who share with the audience what inspired them to write their songs. Job Potter is a singer/songwriter in the Americana genre. He sits in on harmonica with several bands. Potter has been involved in local government and environmental causes for several years. He enjoys organizing events that bring people together.

"The final concert of the season is always a little bitter sweet," said series founder, Nancy Remkus. "It has been another great series and we have so appreciated the support of our musicians and our audiences. I have so enjoyed meeting everyone that comes in the door to support local charities and our musicians."

In addition to Potter, Sarah Azzara, Cynthia Daniels and Sarah Greene, and Klyph Black will be featured.

Azzara is a singer-songwriter, poet, and prose writer. She has played her songs in venues from Barcelona to San Diego, including the Dramatist Guild of America's Songwriter Showcase in Times Square. Sarah has studied with songwriters including Shawn Colvin, Patty Griffin, and Judy Collins and playwrights including Annie Baker, Marsha Norman, and Jason Robert Brown. She has authored a nightclub musical called Tongues Will Wag and she has honed her craft under the tutelage of Billy Collins, Sharon Olds, David Rakoff, Matthew Klam, and Melissa Bank, among many others. Today, she serves as a Lecturer in the Program in Writing and Rhetoric at Stony Brook University.

The rock/alt/blues duo OCDC features the music of lock-step singer-songwriters Cynthia Daniels and Sarah Greene. Daniels is a multi-Grammy winning producer and engineer, and the owner of Monk Music Studios located in East Hampton. She is known for her rock roots and for performing high-energy acoustic rock 'n roll and blues. Greene is a multi-instrumentalist and noted for exceptional blues and jazz inflected electric guitar playing. She has 3 CDs to date and the band is working on their first project with their drummer, James Benard and bassist Michael LeClerc.

Black is a talented instrumentalist and is a veteran of the road playing mostly bass throughout his career with Vendetta, Urgent, Michael Monroe and The Zen Tricksters. Black is the guitarist in Rumor Has It, Black and Sparrow, and The Complete Unknowns. He plays slide, lap steel, acoustic and electric guitar. Additionally, Black has had his songs placed on Felicity and Alias. Black often delves into musical conversations with fellow musicians, whether it is with his bands, or guesting with others.

Beginning in 2002, Maureen's Haven has worked to provide safe, warm temporary shelter to homeless individuals from November through March, utilizing volunteer houses of worship and congregation volunteers. The host facilities and supporting organizations provide much more than a place to sleep and a nutritious meal. They provide support through embracing the values of human dignity, respect, service, compassion, teamwork, diversity, and love.

There will be a complimentary reception that follows the concert - with an opportunity to speak with the artists and fellow concertgoers. General Admission is $20 and $15 for students and senior citizens.

Unitarian Universalist Meetinghouse of the South Fork is located at 977 Sag Harbor/Bridgehampton Turnpike. For more information, visit www.facebook.com.
