In the event of unfavorable weather the concert will be moved indoors where seating is limited to 45. No reservations, first come first served.

MacDonald was born in Connecticut and began singing professionally in New York City neighborhood coffeehouses and Greenwich Village clubs in the 1980s, recording 21 songs now in the Smithsonian Folkways collection, such as “American Jerusalem,” “A Sailor’s Prayer,” “Every Living Thing” and “White Buffalo.”

Now living in South Florida, his songs on ecology, natural environment, social changes, romance and family life as a late-blooming parent have landed him on New Times’ “Ten Greatest South Florida Folksingers Of All Time” and The Palm Beach Post’s “Ten Magnificent Musicians of Palm Beach County” lists.
