Led by ferociously charismatic founder Ravid Kahalani, Yemen Blues wrapped up another stellar, globe-trotting season at Central Park’s Music Haven in Schenectady last month. Opening the show was oud master Ahmed Alshaiba.

Next summer, the Music Haven concert series promises to be an even better experience – if that’s possible – as major renovations to the stage and the seating are currently underway.

And if you love the wide-ranging international music of the Music Haven series, you don’t have to wait for the summertime. Check out the inaugural season of Music Haven’s Passport Concert Series at Proctors’ GE Theatre in Schenectady. It all kicks off at 7:30pm on Thursday, October 19 with the rich Afro-Venezuelan sounds of Betsayda Machado y La Parranda El Clavo.
