We’ve got some great musical acts scheduled to perform at various libraries over the next couple of weeks. All concerts are free and open to the public.
June 15 (Saturday) — Jazz Guitarist Mark Capon
2 pm — Pine Hills Branch
Capon has been on the Capital Region jazz scene for more than 15 years and regularly plays with other musicians in New York City clubs. He’s also released a CD of his solo work.
June 19 (Wednesday) — The Twobadours
6 pm — Arbor Hill/West Hill Branch
Singers/songwriters Marty McDermott and Tom Holland (founding members of the Reverberators) perform a stripped down acoustic set that’s a mix of Americana, roots rock, blues, and folk.
June 21 (Friday) — Elizabeth Woodbury Kasius and Heard
5 pm — Delaware Branch
Heard plays upbeat world music drawing from West Africa, Brazil, and beyond. The group, fronted by pianist/composer Kasius, may even get you dancing in your seat.
June 21 (Friday) — Garage Bands in the Garage with The Hearing Aides and Mod Fiction
6 pm — Main Library
The popular Garage Bands concert series returns this summer with a kickoff concert featuring The Hearing Aides and Mod Fiction. The Hearing Aides are a power trio that likes to play loud music that’s also kind of pretty…sometimes. Mod Fiction is an alternative rock band with a sound that merges early ’90s alt-rock with ’60s pop-garaga rock and ’70s punk rock. The concert is a free all-ages show that takes place in the garage off the Elk Street parking lot at the Main Library. We’ll also have some gently used CDs and DVDs for sale for just $1 each.
