Putman Porch Music Series - Opening Evening

What a wonderful evening along the Mohawk River last Tuesday, as Schoharie Crossing State Historic Site held the first Putman Porch Music event as part of a month long series where local musicians are invited to play on the porch of the historic canal store.  Located at Yankee Hill Lock #28 of the Enlarged Era Erie Canal, the Putman Canal Store operated from 1855-1916.  The setting is perfect for some great American Roots music and from folk to bluegrass. 

Hal captured some wonderful images of the musicians that came out and we are happy that The Recorder newspaper from Amsterdam covered the fun as well.  What better way to enjoy an evening in June than along the historic old canal with great music too!

It is exciting that such great musicians came out for the first event to play on the porch and below are some links to some of their projects, but the best way to experience their talent is in person. 

We hope to see you at any or all of the remaining Putman Porch Music evenings!



A wonderful evening!
