Adirondack Legends concert slated
An outdoor concert of traditional and contemporary Adirondack music and stories is set for 1 p.m. Sunday Sept. 15 in Rogers Park in Bolton Landing. This free concert is organized by Lake George native and folksinger Chris Shaw, and includes storytelling as well as music bred in the Adirondacks. Performers in this concert are well-known Adirondack folk musicians Chris Shaw, Dan Berggren and Bill Smith along with newcomer Alex Smith of Long Lake.
The concert features songs from the Marjorie Lansing Porter collection, along with some of the region’s earliest songs, other traditional songbooks and the performers’ own well-known original songs and stories.
Shaw, Berggren and Smith are old friends who have performed together for decades and are well-acquainted with each other’s material. Newcomer Alex Smith is a student at Saint Lawrence University who has released two albums and toured extensively. He played with Chris Shaw at Caffé Lena in Saratoga.
