Singer-songwriter Sawyer Fredericks, the 2015 winner of NBC-TV’s “The Voice,” will headline the opening concert of the 2017 free concert series at Freedom Park in Scotia.

Fredericks’ concert on Wednesday, June 21, will be the first of more than 30 evenings of free entertainment at the park, and in terms of sheer numbers, that makes it the biggest free summer concert series of Greater Nippertown.
