Not since the Sixties have Jim Kweskin and Geoff Muldaur made music together on the Vineyard — but they will be back on Saturday at the Katharine Cornell Theatre on Spring street in Vineyard Haven.
Patrons of the old Mooncusser Coffee House in Oak Bluffs may recall the pair jamming as part of the Kweskin Jug Band there on several occasions. Carly and Lucy Simon opened for them there.
Geoff is a lifelong resident and visitor to Martha’s Vineyard. As a young summer boy in Edgartown in the early fifties, he would wander into the Gazette from time to time, say hello to family friend Henry Beetle Hough, and sometimes was permitted to set type in the back room. His sister, actress Diana Muldaur, is now a fulltime resident of Edgartown at their family home on Cummings Way.
The concert will be at 8 p.m. Tickets are $22, check or cash only, at the door, or in advance at Alley’s General Store in West Tisbury and Island Entertainment in Vineyard Haven.
