What do you get when two brilliant musicians with deep Long Island roots come together to create a new concert co-presented by two beloved Long Island arts institutions?  Musical Magic.
Such musical magic will occur on Saturday, Oct. 11 at 8 p.m. as Jimmy Webb and Jane Monheit present their new show created specifically to kick off Landmark on Main Street’s 2014-15 Season, a co-presentation with Usdan Center for Creative and Performing Arts.

Jimmy Webb, who calls Long Island his home, was the youngest man ever inducted into the National Songwriters’ Hall of Fame and is the current Chairman.  Some of the great songs he penned include “MacArthur Park,” “Wichita Lineman,” “Worst That Could Happen,” “Galveston,” and “Up, Up And Away.”
