The Music on Main Street concert series returns to Canajoharie again this summer. The free concerts take place at 7pm on Tuesdays, through August 14, anless otherwise noted. The concerts are held on the front lawn of the NBT Bank in Canajoharie. (Rain location for the performances is the Arkell Hall Auditorium at the Canajoharie High School.)

July 9: Harvey Reid
Considered one of the true treasures of American acoustic guitar music, Reid is truly a giant of the steel strings.
Friday, July 12: PermaGrin
Classic rockers witha funky touch.
July 16: The Ameros
A rock, reggae, hip hop and funk powerhouse that combines thought-provoking lyrics, incendiary guitar, party vibes and revolutionary spirit.
July 23: The Maybelles
This all-female band is a beautiful blend of old-timey folk and alt-country.
July 30: Izzy & the Catastrophics
Rockabilly for the 21st century.
August 6: Aztec Two Step
The veteran duo of Rex Fowler and Neal Shulman are in their fifth decade of presenting contemporary folk-pop. Including a trib ute to Simon & Garfunkel.
August 13: Sugar Ray & the Bluetones
It’s all about the blues. Sugar Ray’s voice combines the roadhouse grit of Muddy Waters with a lonesome desperation all his own.
