On Saturday, November 12, the Whallonsburg Grange Hall will present a concert by Adirondack folk singers and storytellers Dan Berggren and Alex Smith.
Dan and Alex are united in their passion of folk traditions and songs that grow from the mountains. Their similarities out-number their 40-year age difference: both were raised in small Adirondack towns, studied at St. Lawrence University, and they continue to keep a keen ear on local stories and write songs that reach far beyond the Blue Line. Both are featured in the PBS documentary on Adirondack music, Songs to Keep.
“Berggren is old-school folk in the best of ways, simple, solid and sure.” – David Malachowski, Times Union Albany
“Alex is a natural storyteller with a rich voice who is creating poignant songs rooted in the heritage of his Adirondack home.” – Sarah Craig, Caffe Lena
The music begins at 7:30pm, and tickets are $12 at the door, with a special price of $5 for those under 18. All ages are welcome.
