FREE: Live! Folklife Concerts Return to Glens Falls
Up in Glens Falls, the Live! Folklife Concerts are back for another season featuring a half dozen free concerts at the Folklife Center at Crandall Public Library. The concerts take place at 7pm on Thursdays.
Here’s the fall 2018 schedule of concerts:
Thursday (September 6): Ryanhood
The acoustic duo of Cameron Hood and Ryan Green began as humble street-performers at Boston’s Quincy Market, and more than 800 shows in 42 states later, they have developed a reputation around the country as one of the most entertaining and engaging twosomes around. They have since relocated to Arizona, where they have won more than a dozen Tucson Music Awards including “Best Folk Band” and “Best Rock Band.”

Since 1988, Greater Nippertown’s own John Kirk and Trish Miller have toured as a duo throughout the world, from the Grand Canyon to Barbados, from Carnegie Hall in New York to St. Petersburg, Russia, playing music and singing in concerts, festivals, and schools, and calling contra and square dances. Tonight they will be joined by Ed Lowman and other special guests.

Based in Glasgow, band members (Adam Brown/bodhrán, Adam Rhodes/bouzouki, Mohsen Amini/concertina, Ryan Murphy/uilleann pipes, Tomás Callister/fiddle) hail from Ireland, the Isle of Man, Scotland and England.
