Lenny Solomon's style has been compared to early Dylan, Guy Clark, and Jerry Jeff Walker. In the 1970s Solomon was fixture at the Idler Coffeehouse in Harvard Square, Cambridge, where he performed for over eight years. The Idler was a training ground for such luminaries as Geoff Bartley, Paul Rishell, Spider John Koerner, and Ric Ocasek. He shared bills with performers such as Chris Smither, Carolyn Hester, Bonnie Raitt, and Spider John. From 1980 through the mid-1990s Solomon wrote songs but rarely performed in public, raising a family while working in environmental research at Harvard University. In 1997 Solomon got back into live performing and formed his folk/country band. Band members now include Bill Gibbs on guitars and backup vocals and Don Barry on standup bass and harmony vocals. Solomon has written hundreds of songs.

Gettysburg is a very well written piece!

Hello Nick and thanks for the kind words. I don't really know how Broadjam works. There are too many music sites and too little time to write music. Will this comment be seen by everyone in the free world or does it just go to you? I do have a Facebook account and I'm more familiar with how that one works, at least until the rules change again in another minute or two.

Lenny, A Moose in Brooklyn is a beautiful as if there was a Moose in Brooklyn. Not too many deeply touching songs written about Moose, but Salvation does come from Spirit Nature. Sending you a Friend Request to help you find you way on Broadjam. - Brother Nickolas
