First Acoustics is a concert series, based in Brooklyn, New York. We feature established and emerging artists from the genres of contemporary and traditional folk music, jazz, blues, world music, and Americana. Some of the performers who have appeared at First Acoustics include Livingston Taylor, Tom Rush, Leon Redbone, Holly Near, Red Molly, Brother Sun, Spirit Ensemble, and many more.
Since 2008 our all-volunteer staff has hosted more than 60 concerts at The First Unitarian Congregational Society In Brooklyn. Though located at the church our program is totally secular in nature. In our sixth season, our first as an independent nonprofit organization, we will continue to present shows at the Unitarian Church, but we also venture out to other locations in Brooklyn.
