CCC announces summer "Concerts on the Bluff"

PLATTSBURGH Clinton Community College has announced the Concerts on the Bluff 2008 summer concert series. Each summer, for over 30 years, CCC has hosted a series of concerts held on the campus grounds at 136 Clinton Point Dr. The concerts take place several Wednesday evenings during July and August. One of the Adirondacks favorite sons, singer and songwriter, Roy Hurd and his fiddler friend from Glens Falls, Frank Orsini, will perform on July 9, sponsored by the CCC Alumni Association. Adirondack Life magazine said, Roy Hurd is the best known singer-songwriter in the Adirondacks. His appeal lies as much in his storytelling as it does in his smooth vocal delivery and clear guitar work. The force of his belief is in the gentleness of his delivery. On July 16, the series will present Too Tall String Band. Theres something for every taste as Too Tall shows its versatility and wide musical influences by doing everything from Celtic songs and fiddle tunes to traditional Adirondack tunes and stories to roots country music and even a little bluegrass. On July 30, the series welcomes back South Junction, the powerful melodies of new country, old rock, and original music. The concert series will conclude Aug. 6 with Patrick Fitzsimmons Trio. New Jerseys Daily Record wrote, Poetic lyrics, hauntingly beautiful melodies, while also getting down right funky at times. Mick Skidmore of Relix Magazine wrote, Fitzsimmons heartfelt and often rhythmic songs are the focal point. His delicate vocals make him one of the most captivating, if understated, songwriters around today. Concerts on the Bluff are free and open to the public. They start promptly at 6:30 p.m. and are held rain or shine. Guests are urged to bring a lawn chair or blanket to sit on. No alcoholic beverages are allowed. For your safety, no rollerblades or skateboards. For more information, contact the College Relations Office at 562-4161.
