KIDS OUTDOOR CONCERT: Johnny Cuomo – Songs & Stories

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. Cuomo is also a folk-flavored acoustic roots artist, with influences in rock and traditional Irish music. His “Dylanesque” voice follows the tradition of Roger McGuinn and Tom Petty in capturing the essential emotion of the American musical spirit from its core beginnings to present.
