Gene Casey, one of the East End’s best known musicians, will appear for a rare free open-to-the-public showcase at the East Hampton Library on Saturday at 6 p.m. Mr. Casey will perform mostly original material, along with some of his usual classic country, rock, and rockabilly covers on acoustic guitar, accompanied by Peter Crugnale on upright bass.

“I’ve always been up for these singer-songwriter type of gigs,” Mr. Casey said. “It’ll be my kind of mix of rocking, bluesy, twangy songs, and I’m really looking forward to it.”

Originally from Jamaica, Queens, Mr. Casey played extensively on the New York City club scene during the 1980s before moving to the North Fork at the end of the decade. Along with his rotating cast of sidekicks, dubbed the Lone Sharks, he was the house band at the Wild Rose Cafe in Bridgehampton in the 1990s and has been a fixture on the Long Island music scene ever since. Gene Casey and the Lone Sharks are booked for regular shows the last Saturday of each month at the Green Hill Kitchen in Greenport and will play a concert at Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor in March.
