The Upbeat On the Roof concert series is coming back at Skidmore College’s Tang Museum for its 12th summer season with a diverse and impressive line-up of homegrown Nippertown talent… and a few others.

    I miss the rootsy days of Railbird, but I look forward to seeing the red-hot Sarah Pedinotti on stage
