The East Greenbush Community Library is once again presenting its annual free summer concert series, and as in years past, this one’s a little different than most of the library concert series around Greater Nippertown. It’s held indoors, rather than outdoors on the lawn, so seating is limited, and registration is recommended to insure admission.

The series kicks off on Wednesday (June 29) with the vintage Americana duo Lost Radio Rounders, and stretches from country to jazz over the course of the summer. All concerts take place at 7pm on Wednesdays.

Here the line-up of free concert for the East Greenbush Community Library’s 2016 Summer Music Series:

Wednesday (June 29), 7pm
Tom Lindsay and Michael Eck kick off the summer concert series with “Carl Sandburg’s American Songbag,” featuring such classics as “Shenandoah,” “Froggie Went a-Courting,” “John B. Sails” and “Turkey in the Straw.”

Wednesday, July 6, 7pm
With “Brazilian Romance,” the piano-and-vocal duo – joined by bassist Bobby Kendall – captures the essence of the sultry romance and the mesmerizing rhythm of bossa nova to help get you in the mood for the Rio Olympics.

Wednesday, July 13, 7pm
Marty Wendell has been a shining light in country and rockabilly music for decades. He and his Tour Band have shared the stage with some of the biggest names in the country music business.

Wednesday, July 20, 7pm
This fine Local 518 band will provide a relaxing program of jazz standards, ballads and blues from the 1920’s to the present.
