Lewiston Council on the Arts (LCA)  www.artcouncil.org  and Just Buffalo Literary Center (JBLC)  www.justbuffalo.org will present another program in the second season of the Lewiston Arts Cafe'. Hosted by Perry Nicholas and Maria Sebastian, Arts Cafe' is a series of programs that feature some of the finest poets and musicians in WNY at the historic Lewiston Opera Hall, 732 Center St. 

Poet Livio Farallo is co-founder and co-editor of Slipstream, an international literary magazine in existence for 35 years. He hosted the Just Buffalo Open Reading Series for a number of years and has been published in numerous small press publications since the late 1970s. While at Niagara University, he co-founded Nomad Magazine which then morphed into Slipstream once he graduated.

Singer, songwriter, and award-winning musician  Darryl Tonemah, is Kiowa, Comanche, and Tuscarora. His songs are filled with thought-provoking metaphors, sharp with emotion and humor that makes his music easy to relate to while it speaks to the soul. His music has been recognized by the prestigious Native American Music Awards, Aboriginal Peoples Choice Awards, and Indian Summer Music Awards. He has appeared in several movies and stage productions and recently authored a book entitled Spray Your Swamp Cooler.
