It’s called the American Music Festival for the Lake, and it’s coming to Lake George for two days in September.
The inaugural fest is being held at Charles R. Wood Park (the former site of Wood’s long defunct Gaslight Village amusement park) beginning at 12noon on Saturday and Sunday, September 20 & 21.
Saturday’s line-up will feature rock acts, while Sunday’s schedule of performers will focus on country music. Only a few acts have been announced so far, but Saturday’s performers will include Robert Randolph & the Family Band, NRBQ and Wild Adriatic, as well as at least four additional bands. Saturday’s fest will be capped off with fireworks.
Meanwhile, the Claire Lynch Band (featuring the International Bluegrass Music Association’s three-time Female Vocalist of the Year) and Rosco Bandana (a seven-piece Mississippi-based country band that’s not afraid to cover a Blur song).
Gates open at 11am on both days. Blankets and lawn chairs are welcome. Ticket prices are TBA, but festival-goers under age 16 will be admitted FREE with parent or guardian. A portion of the festival’s income will go directly to the S.A.V.E Lake George Partnership in its continuing efforts to ensure the water quality of the lake.
