Here’s the complete schedule of music at the 2017 September in the City Art Fair series:

September 7: ZAN STRUMFELD
Everyone knows life has two constants; for singer-songwriter Zan Strumfeld it’s love and heartache. And while she loves to love, her losses expose a creativity that only resurfaces in the depths of sorrow. What transpires? Lullabies for the lonely, anthems for the revivalists, ballads for the hopeful. With a soulful and seductive vulnerability, she carefully reveals snippets of her deepest secrets that leave you craving more.

September 14: ALEX SMITH
Alex Smith grew up in Long Lake in the heart of the Adirondacks, the mountains heavily informing his music – steeped in tradition but always looking ahead to the future. Smith began touring while in college at St. Lawrence University, and there released his first two albums, Sawdust and Live with Dylan Rice. Now, he tours and records extensively both solo and with his band the Mountain Sound, and signed with Wepecket Island Records for his third record, Hamilton County.

September 21: RYAN LEDDICK
Having shared the stage with many people in numerous settings Ryan Leddick has taken his own road, from theater to live sound, creating his own genre by blending tasteful reggae beats with soulful melodies. He has shared the stage with such notable musicians as Damien Rice and Patti Larkin, as well as Broadway stars.

September 28: RAGLIACCI
Ragliacci is a vaudevillesque revival pied and piping as your local folk clown. Oft improvising with guitar, harmonica, kazoo and a parade of percussion, he serves up old folk songs, early jazz, a cappella classical, contemporary favorites and original material from off the beaten path and around the world. Audience participation is always encouraged.
