BLUE MOUNTAIN LAKE, NY: The Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts will present the duo Alex Smith & Dan Berggren performing Adirondack folk and roots music on Saturday, Sept. 29, at 7:30 p.m. at the Arts Center. Tickets are $15 for Arts Center members, $20 non-members, and $10 student and youth 17 and under and are available at the Arts Center’s website, adirondackarts.org.
Veteran folksinger Dan Berggren and emerging singer-songwriter Alex Smith are united in their passion for songs that grow from the mountains. Their similarities far outnumber their 40-year age gap: both were raised in small Adirondack towns, studied at St. Lawrence University, keep a keen ear out for local stories, and write songs that reach far beyond the Blue Line. Alex and Dan are featured in the PBS documentary on Adirondack music, Songs to Keep. For more on their music, go to www.alexsmithlonglakemusic.com and www.berggrenfolk.com
Beer, wine, and other refreshments will be available. The Arts Center is located at 3446 State Route 28, Blue Mountain Lake. This concert is sponsored by the Jane Jacobs Music Fund.
