Summer concerts lineup is announced

Organizers of the 2012 Whitehall Summer Concert Series have announced this year’s lineup of performers and the list includes a number of acts that have made the series so popular.

The series gets off to a similar start as it did last year, with the Willie Playmore Band performing live from Harbor Park during the annual Canal Festival.

The performance will be held in the picnic shelter in the park on Skenesborough Drive beginning at 7 p.m. on Friday, July 14.

Although technically not part of the summer concert series, Children at Play will perform in the Skenesborough amphitheater from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 14.

The series picks up the following week with the Hartford Community Band on July 20 and the Adirondack Fiddlers close out the month on July 27.

The month of August will feature five concerts, beginning with the Moonlighters on Aug. 3, Enerjazz on Aug. 10, the Rutland City Band on Aug. 17. The Talegatorz will perform on Aug. 24, and Airtight will bring the series to an end from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Aug. 31

All concerts are held from 7 to 9 p.m. on Friday nights in the 1892 Bandstand in Riverside Park, unless otherwise noted. Admission is free, but attendees are encouraged to bring their own seating.

The series is provided in part by assistance from the Lower Adirondack Regional Arts Council.
