 Rain location Fern Park Pavilion

 July 4, 2015 - Jamie Notarthomas 7:30-10 pm

Jamie is a very sincere and inspired artist. His previous three original CD’s have progressively developed a mix of musical styles, influenced by what he refers to the twelve apostoles of rock and roll, such as John Lennon, Van Morrison, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Costello, James Taylor, Bob Marley, Leonard Cohen, Peter Gabriel, and Luis Jordan.

July 11, 2015 - Karen Savoca & Pete Heitzman 7-9 pm

Years of leading their all-original, dance-driven group imbued this duo with the power to sound like a full band, whether it’s pulsing funk or haunting ballad.  Electrifying, unique, and always uplifting, these improvisational performers possess “the fearlessness of a high wire act working without a net.”  Karen’s website:

July 25, 2015 - Shrinking Violets 7-9 pm

Playing together as Shrinking Violets since 1993, Darryl and Julia Murdock completed their partnership by marrying in 1997. They have wandered throughout the Northeast, gracing such stages as Night Eagle Café and Coffeehouse in Oxford, NY and Caffe Lena’s in Saratoga Springs, NY. They have an instantly recognizable, yet undefinable singer/songwriter style that can best be described as ‘jazzy acoustic folk pop’. Both Darryl and Julia are classically trained and experienced in performing for many types of audiences.

Gwen Tracy is back on stage as The Gwen Tracy Band, with husband Chris Deuss on percussion/harmonica/mandolin, mom Bonnie Tracy on the bass, and dad Jim Tracy on vocals/guitar.

She’s performed with the band Delia, musicians John Kribs and Orion Kribs, and most recently in duo’s with her dad, Jim Tracy, in father-daughter blues and folk-rock sessions. Facebook Page

August 8, 2015 – Jonny Hirsch Band 6-8 pm

Jonny Hirsch is one of New York City’s most intriguing solo artists. The singer/saxophonist is often compared to the likes of Steely Dan and Karl Denson.  Fusing elements of rock, funk, jazz, and skat singing with a powerful voice and a dynamic saxophone, Jonny’s music has an original sound of its own, while staying true to its roots in new age blues and funk. This versatile composer and lyricist pays tribute to the great traditions of American rock and blues in his song writing, while the live show incorporates more improvisation. His website:

Dan Berggren has been collecting, writing and singing folk music of the Adirondacks for the past 30 years. Growing up in the mountains on the land farmed by his mother’s family, he’s worked in the woods on a forest ranger’s crew and a survey crew. Hearing stories and songs from local friends and neighbors, Dan has developed a style that captures the spirit of the mountains.  His website:

August 22, 2015 - Bill Staines 6-8 pm

“Any new song that can live comfortably beside the well-worn songs of folk tradition has a good chance of surviving the test of time. Such, we believe, are the songs of Bill Staines” — Charles “Sandy” Paton, Folk Legacy Records.  His website: Bill Staines

August 29, 2015The Jam Bones 6-8 pm

The Jam Bones, a band that began as a brainchild of Rich Walikis in 2003, are an energetic retro-styled trio that performs music from a number of styles including Oldies, Blues, R&B, Rock and Roll, Reggae, Country and more. They recreate covers from a wide range of artists and also perform original music from their two all original CD’s, “Shake and Bake” and “New Recipe”.

September 5, 2015 - Fritz Henry 6-8 pm

The music of Fritz Henry is a unique blend of folk, pop, country and rock that truly captures the “return to basics” style attracting audiences of the New Millennium. With vocals rich and varied, Fritz accompanies himself with 12-string guitar and harmonica delighting his listeners with rhythm, repertoire and range. His CD’s “The Survivor” and “Faces and Places” are a full measure of his creativity. Actively entertaining for more than 20 years, he has been enthusiastically received across the USA as well as in England, Scotland, Wales and Austria. In his words, “Actually meeting and sharing music with people from different places and countries, helps define your perspective of the world and will trigger creative insights which need to be expressed.” The sights and experiences of these people and places, both beautiful and tragic, can be found woven throughout Fritz’s songs and poems.
