*** December 10th:  Alex Smith


Pot luck Dinner 6 PM, Concert at 7 PM    Donation $20


Alex grew up in Long Lake, my home town, in the heart of New York's Adirondack Park!  I'm very excited to have him play for us.  His music strives first and foremost to echo the people of that area. He builds songs from a blend of traditional folk harmony and modern lyrics. 

***January 21, 2016:  Will Woodson and Eric McDonald


Pot luck dinner 6 PM, Concert at 7 PM   Donation $20


Will Woodson and Eric McDonald are two of today’s finest young proponents of traditional Scottish music. They’ve spent countless hours playing music together, developing a meaningful and refined partnership. With an unusual blend of wind and plucked strings, they bring a welcome sensitivity to a tradition that is often known for its high velocity. Still, their music is full of drive and energy. It’s the sum product of two musicians well versed in their tradition, playing honest and at times risky music.
