Get Up Tuesday For Get Up Jack

Tuesday, July 10, marks the launch of the  Schroon Lake Arts Council's 2018 Boathouse  Concert  with the world famous Irish band "Get Up Jack"

From The Arts Council:

"Get Up Jack is a joyous, retro-romp by six of the most energetic and charismatic performers in Irish music today.  Their soaring vocals and enthusiastic performances have drawn comparisons to the old- school groups of their youth (like The Dubliners, The Clancy Brothers and The Wolfe Tones), yet it is their own unique instrumentation, style and delivery that makes them a one-of-a-kind experience".  

The tickets are  $20 and can be purchased through Brown Paper tickets or the Schroon Lake Arts Council website, by clicking here.

For many vacationing in greater Schroon Lake area, a stay is not complete without a trip to the world famous summer horses racing at Saratoga Springs.

The 2018 season for the Saratoga Race Course begins with Opening Day on Friday, July 20, 2018 and ends with Closing Day on Monday (Labor Day), September 3, 2018. There are 6 days of racing each week all season long (the Track is dark on Tuesdays). Travers Day will be Saturday, August 25, 2018.

That that means re-publishing our insiders guide to having a great day at the track, written by horse racing fan and Schroon Laker, Joanne Piterniak.

Adirondack Shakespeare Company Chilling for the Summer

 Schroon’s own ADK Shakespeare Company in 2015 added a new element to their children’s programming: Arts & Crafts activities for their young audience members. 

Schroon’s own ADK Shakespeare Company in 2015 added a new element to their children’s programming: Arts & Crafts activities for their young audience members. 

We are saddened to learn that the amazingly talented Adirondack Shakespeare Company, affectionately known as ADK Shakes, has suspended their performances for the 2018 summer.

We pray this is just temporary and the company will be back, bigger and better than ever. In the end it all boils down to finance, as explained in their press release. Which you can red in our Music and Arts Section.
