There’s another huge music season ahead, with two internationally known acts headlining this year’s Schroon Lake Arts Council season.

American roots trio “Red Molly” will be returning again for a third year and the internationally acclaimed “Cherish The Ladies”  --  a Celtic music group of 5 women and a dancer  -- will be making their Schroon Lake debut.

“I am simply thrilled with our season,” Jack Osborne, president of the Schroon Lake Arts Council tells us.

“Harpeth Rising is another group of up and coming three  young talented ladies scheduled to appear during our season.

“I have to say defensively that this season is NOT ‘all about the women’ – there are some men appearing as well”.

The fire is out at Mr. P's Smokehouse. After much thought and deep soul searching, Chefs Shelby Davis and Chris Palmatier, will not re-open for the season.

In a moving missive to Mr. P's Facebook fans, Chefs Shelby and Chris explains how they came to their decision. We, like many of our readers will be, are saddened  -- and a little freaked out -- by this news, but totally understand. You can read all about it in our Food and Drink Section.
