Led by Karen Ann Gilpin and Peggy Lecuyer, Nippertown’s own Nellies were once again on hand to host the sixth annual Riverlink Jamboree at the Beechnut Bandshell at Riverlink Park on the banks of the Mohawk River on a beautiful Saturday in Amsterdam.

Joining in the afternoon acoustic Americana hoedown was Dark Don’t Catch Me Here, a Alston, Mass.-based rowdy, roots-rockin’ duo featuring Evan Gavry and Laura Jean Dargus.

Meanwhile, straight outta Asheville, North Carolina, the Locust Honey String Band – featuring Chloe Edmonstone (fiddle, guitar, vocals), Grace Van Hof (banjo) and Meredith Watson (guitar, vocals) – captured hearts and tore ‘em asunder with their old-timey fiddle tunes and aching country harmonies, as they showcased selections from their latest album, Never Let Me Cross Your Mind.
