Evaluate what things you are interested in as a person. 2. Research what resources are available to help you find literature that covers those interests. 3. Seek out the people that can help you acquire that material.

James O'Malley is regarded as one of the most respected of contemporary folk artists in this region. An eloquent performer and celebrated songwriter, audiences who've experienced his concerts are embraced by a warm and powerful performance. He has performed for years and has released 3 CDs on his own label. James is a New York native and lives in Center Moriches, N.Y. and enjoys the intimacy of library settings. ...His artistry goes beyond the songs, having seen James perform many times, I am beginning to appreciate how each song is a loving relationship for him, like a child, he never seems to tire of bringing each one to life for the audience. We are always mesmerized. Thank you... Laura Jones - Jones Review

There's a great picture of the Beatles back stage at the Ed Sullivan show in 1964 staring in awe at Peter Paul and Mary. The Beatles knew they were in the company of incredible and important musicians. This trio did more to make American folk music accessible to the masses than anyone else. People all over the world sang along to "Puff the Magic Dragon," "Leaving on a Jet Plane" and "Blowin in the Wind." And audience members can't help but sing along with Spook as he leads them through this heart-opening, educational, and voice-raising program! (Occasionally, Spook is joined by Paul Prestopino who toured with PPM for 15 years as a back up musician.) An excellent program for Libraries, Arts Centers, Churches, Schools and other meeting places.

Her insightful interpretations and compelling stage presence continue to bring rave reviews from audiences and critics alike.
