Abby Payne like one of her biggest creative influences (Bjork), seems to make her own little world with every song, every album, and every music video.


Payne grew up in a musical family on a dairy farm in upstate New York.  She studied jazz singing at SUNY Purchase College, where she also began performing her original music (her very first performance of an original song was at a "Women Out Loud" event), and working with a band comprised of rock and jazz musicians.  Her background, education, and experiences have informed her musical perspective: rural and cosmopolitan, country and jazz, pop and rock, Patsy Cline meets Billy Holiday, Tori Amos meets Adele. 


Again this year the show will go on rain or shine.  In the event of rain, the concert will be held inside the Eastern Civic Center.  For up-to-the-minute venue changes please request to join Friends of GP Constant Contact at  Please include your first and last name with your email request. 


Be sure to bring chairs or blanket and refreshments.
