The Schroon Lake Arts Council proudly kicks of its 2015 Summer Concert Series with Adirondack Legend, Dan Berggren.

Dan teams up with Ed Lowman, of the Schroon Lake Square Dance, for the concert at The Boat House on Dock Street.

This performance replaces a previously advertised gig featuring End of America, who cancelled last minute, says SLAC President Jack Osborne. That’s when Jack reached out to Dan, who agreed to fill the void, Jack tells Schroon Laker.

“Together, they will be offering a program that Dan has performed here in Schroon Lake several years back which tells the story in song)of the history of folk music in the Adirondacks,” Jack told us.

“While his roots are firmly in the Adirondacks where he was raised, Dan's music has branched out across many borders. He’s an  award-winning educator and musician has entertained audiences from Kentucky to Michigan, Belgium to Bulgaria, and Zimbabwe to Transylvania”.

Tickets are available at 7pm at The Boat House. The concert starts at 8pm. Fore more on the amazing summer season click here.

 

July 4th 2015: From Wonderful To Wet

It was a 4th of July Schroon style to remember – on so many levels. From the traditional Community Church Barbecue, all day kids activities and music at the beach, as Main Street buzzed all day.  The entrée to the main course went off perfectly.

Once again the parade dazzled.  It’s always an amazing experience to be part of a small town tradition, which rolls out a HUGE event. The smiles and cheering from an exuberant crowd, candy galore and seeing so many flags waved is very special.

But then things went south pretty fast, thanks to a nasty weather front, which really messed things up. Read more in our July 4, 2015 section.
