BLUE MOUNTAIN LAKE — Join the Adirondack Museum for its next Cabin Fever Sunday program, “Lies Will be Told Today,” with Storyteller & Folk Musician Chris Shaw on Sunday, Feb. 24.
This museum-sponsored program will take place at the Tannery Pond Community Center in North Creek at 1:30 p.m.
Adirondack singer, songwriter, and storyteller Chris Shaw is known for his adventurous and fun-filled reflections on life in the North Country. The Adirondack Museum is proud to present an afternoon filled with his songs, stories, and even a few tall tales. Shaw will perform traditional tunes and original compositions inspired by his native Adirondacks. This entertaining performance features stories and songs that will bring you to logging camps, into the woods, and on the waters— and of course Chris, an avid fly fisherman, will share a few fishy tales.
Shaw has nine recordings to his credit including his 1988 debut, Adirondack, which has been entered into the Library of Congress Folk Archives. Chris' latest solo effort, Adirondack Serenade, is a celebration of the musical styles and traditions of his native Adirondack Mountains. Currently, he is working on an album with multi instrumentalist, and long time collaborator John Kirk, and Adirondack singer songwriter Dan Berggren. Shaw has been featured on a number of public television documentaries and specials.
Cabin Fever Sundays are offered at no charge to museum members or children of elementary school age and younger. The fee for non-members is $5. For additional information, call 352-7311, ext. 128 or visit www.adkmuseum.org.
