The Lemon Drops will perform at the Musicians Unite for Local Food Pantries will be held at the Adirondack Carousel Feb. 23.

— At the event food will be barbecued and hamburger and hot dogs can be purchased, with all profits going directly to the food pantries. There will also be door prizes, raffles and a guitar signed by all of the artists performing during the day which will be auctioned to aide in raising funds.

“It would be quicker to name who hasn’t donated something because practically every place in Saranac Lake has given something for the fundraiser,” Gorgas said. “From meals to oil changes, we have a lot of items.”

The festivities will begin at 10:45 a.m. with a performance by Adirondack Piper Cameron Anderson. Performance schedules are subject to change but Gorgas said artists will play in this order: Jubal Consort, a recorder ensemble, will follow Piper Cameron Anderson, followed by songwriter Barbara Darring. The Rustic Riders bring their original brand of inspirational folk and traditional music. Oh!Betty a country blues duo from the Plattsburg area. The Lemon Drops play an eclectic blend of melodic music. Adirondack folksinger/songwriter Jamie Savage takes a break from teaching at Wanakena Ranger School to perform a set. The tri-lakes’ favorite “chick” band, The Dust Bunnies, bring their original folk and blues with excellent instrumentation, joined and then followed by Eric Klotzko and maybe other members of Y Not Blue, LeGroove(jazz), SplitRock, Larry Stone & Stoneground Express, Celia Evans, Theresa Hartford, Keith Gorgas & Friends, BarnCats, and the Shamrock Jam Group.

For more information about the event call Gorgas at 637-9205.
