COVID-19 What to Expect: There will be no restrooms available for use during outdoor programs. Attendees are required to wear masks at all times. Social distancing guidelines will be enforced.

Join us for our final Thursday afternoon kids & family program on the west lawn with musician and storyteller Johnny Cuomo and his family band.

The art of storytelling comes naturally to musician/author/storyteller Johnny Cuomo. Collecting stories from his travels and interests, Johnny combines these with his musical talents to unfold tales of nature, birds, animals and stories from near and afar.

Starting out as a volunteer teacher on the Barona and Viejas Indian Reservations in California, Johnny developed a special connection with the Native American culture, which has enriched his abilities as a storyteller of Indian tales. While living and attending school in Ireland, Johnny learned first hand about the Irish culture and music, which sent him on a path to forming his own traditional Irish band, Gallowglass, performing all over the US and abroad.

Currently, as a musician, teacher and storyteller, Johnny offers family and musical programs along with his two sons, Johnny and Paul. As the Cuomo Family Band, they play to audiences in festivals, museums, libraries and schools, all over Long Island and the New York area.

Johnny has found new ways to continue reaching his audience, with monthly episodes of his variety shows for kids streaming through Tune Supply. Additionally, his first published children’s book, titled Katy Didn’t, will be released in September.
