Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Roger McGuinn will headline the Pete Fornatale Memorial Concert, a fundraiser for Why Hunger, at Port Washington’s Landmark on Main Street on May 2.

McGuinn plans to mix classics from The Byrds like “Eight Miles High” and “Mr. Tambourine Man” with more current folk songs. Rocker Willie Nile will open the show.

The late Fornatale, one of New York’s best-known DJs for nearly half a century, co-hosted the Why Hungerthon fundraiser for many years after Harry Chapin and DJ Bill Ayres founded the charity in 1975.

Tickets are $50-$70 and go on sale Monday through Landmark on Main Street, 516-767-6444, landmarkonmainstreet.org. Friends of Landmark can purchase pre-sale tickets now.
