We welcome back the bassist, Mary Ann McSweeney! Audiences were delighted by her Urban Fado Quartet a few seasons ago at the Studio Around the Corner. This duo will feature her husband, Mike Fahn. The couple will have celebrated 24 years of marriage and music together on August 3rd, 2020. They met in the jazz scene while living in Los Angeles and both decided to move to New York in the early 1990’s. They both played in Jack Sheldon’s Big Band in L.A. and each had their own bands and gigs before coming to NYC. Mike plays valve trombone and is known for his improvisations. He has played with Michael Brecker, Andrew Hill and Kenny Wheeler along with leading his own groups performing at Jazz clubs throughout New York and beyond.
McSweeney has performed with Dizzy Gillespie, Jane Monheit and Lee Konitz to name a few. She is a composer and leads her own groups while performing Broadway shows. She is currently writing her second Fado album. The couple will be presenting a tribute to Bob Brookmeyer and Jimmy Giuffre. This music is considered chamber jazz and was created in the late 1950’s. The couple is adding their own story to these great tunes and will be releasing an album in the next few months. 
The Garden Around the Corner is a partnership with the Cultural Arts Coalition, the Master Gardeners of Putnam County, Cornell Cooperative Extension and the Putnam Community Action Partnership to bring gardening programs and a community garden to the Village of Brewster.

About The Town of Southeast Cultural Arts Coalition
The Town of Southeast Cultural Arts Coalition is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to creating and sustaining cultural arts within the Town of Southeast and its surrounding region. TOSCAC was established as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation in August 2010 with the purpose, as detailed in the incorporation papers, “... to promote and raise funds for the development and effective management of affordable, accessible performance space that will provide citizens of the Town of Southeast opportunities to participate in and appreciate cultural arts, including lectures, theater, dance, film, music, visual arts, and inclusive community events.” 

Our current focus is the renovation of the Southeast Old Town Hall, a historic landmark within the Village of Brewster and a perfect venue to serve as a cultural hub. The Old Town Hall has been described as a “Jewel in the Center of Brewster” and its renovation will help foster the revitalization of downtown Brewster.
