Once again the Folklife Center at the Crandall Library in Glens Falls is hosting a free autumn concert series. The concerts take place at 7pm on Thursdays during the next month at the library’s Community Room.

Here’s what’s on tap for fall 2011:

Thursday, October 27
Cinder Conk: Matthew Schreiber’s frenzied accordion riffs lock in with Xar Adelberg’s warm double bass counterpoint for some energetic, winsome and haunting traditional Balkan and original music drawn from the Black Sea.
