Band Jam, Thank You Ma'am: It's Monday Night!

Okay -- so we've used that headline before, because we think it's fun -- But not as much fun as the real thing -- that is tonight's Band Jam at the Boat House.

Every Monday night, throughout the summer, be sure to check out this rocking acoustic jam session.

From 7 pm to 10 pm you can hear the sweet sounds of fiddles, guitars, drums, and tambourines – as well as some pretty crackin’ vocals. All are welcome, whether you prefer to sit on stage or the sidelines.

Proudly sponsored by the Schroon Lake Arts Council. Will we see you there this summer? For more info call 518 532-9259.


Bill Zito Back in Schroon

Legendary guitarist Bill Zito returns to Schrod Sunday, with a concert at The Strand Theatre.. Mr Zito has played in Schroon several times since 2014, and has developed a local following.

“His formal debut came in Alice Tully Hall where he received critical acclaim. Soon after, he was chosen by Hi Fidelity Magazine as one of the Young Artists of the year. Mr. Zito was an Artist International Competition prize winner. Called “First rate throughout the entire afternoon” by the N.Y. Times, Mr. Zito has received praise for both his solo and ensemble work. He has toured extensively throughout the United States and Europe. This versatile performer is equally at home on lute as he is on the guitar. On one evening with Philharmonia Virtuoso he performed back-to back concertos on mandolin, lute, and guitar.
