“…He is a vivid storyteller, a beautiful guitarist with a voice that grabs you and stays with you in your sleep. He writes and plays about the big stuff. He is deeply sincere. You leave his show enlightened and entranced, and with a sadness that you have on the last page of your favorite novel.”

“Where the Day Goes”

“Every year, we host this super fun and relaxing event at Flushing Town Hall. We practice yoga, listen to great music and hang out and have a picnic. A lovely way to spend Fri evening in the neighborhood. This year is going to be very special because my good friend, Lucas Rotman, bluegrass folk singer-songwriter and an extraordinary educator, will be playing at the event … I can’t wait to hear his banjo and harmonica ring through the town hall garden right in the middle of flushing queens! Free event! Come and hang with us!”

““Gritty, relevant, street-smart performer. Lucas digs deep. His spirited songs pack a wallop, backed by his baritone guitar, banjo and soulful harmonica playing.””

Lucas was inspired to write this song by the award winning book “Enrique’s Journey” by Sonia Nazario Lucas said “It should be required reading for every American.” Whatever your political persuasion this is songwriting at its best. And whatever your political position, we (99.99% of the people on this list) are all immigrants or children of immigrants who longed for freedom. Thanks Lucas for sharing it.

Describe what they are going to get when they listen to Lucas Rotman? Lucas: Seems that people are actually pretty hungry to hear music that comes out of people’s lived experience, since our airwaves are glutted with sounds we have little control over. My songs are personal and introspective, but speak to wider and more universal issues and themes (justice, peace, mortality, love and loss) that we all go through as human beings. People who enjoy lyrical poetry and melodies that take you places will love what I do. My voice is not the kind you’ll hear anywhere else nowadays. ”
