Work Songs to Hollers

At the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill

    The Lounge, a new music series featuring singers and instrumentalists, will open tomorrow at 6 p.m. at the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill with Edith and Bennett. Edith Gawler and Bennett Konesni are musicians and scholars of work songs who play old-time fiddle and banjo music, Swedish dance tunes, and farmers ballads and hollers. Ms. Gawler and Mr. Konesni divide their time between Shelter Island and Belfast, Me.

    The museum’s Lichtenstein Theater has been transformed into an informal club setting for the series. Future programs will spotlight Sophia Bastian, a singer-songwriter, on Feb. 14 and the Richie Siegler All-Star Quartet on March 14. Tickets cost $10 but are free for members, students, and children, and include museum admission. Reservations have been recommended and can be made at
