Sadly, Farkas passed away suddenly on Saturday, June 12.
So Thursday’s Jazz on Jay concert will instead be a tribute to Sam Farkas and his musical legacy. Performing Farkas’ music in his honor on Thursday will be guitarist Joe Finn, drummer Cliff Brucker, organist Michael Lamkin and saxophonist Eric Walentowicz.
The free performance will take place at 12noon on Thursday on Jay Street in Schenectady. In case of bad weather, the concert will be moved indoors to Robb Alley at Proctors.
