They’re at the Otesaga Resort Hotel in Cooperstown at 7:30pm on Saturday as part of the Cooperstown Concert Series ($20; $15 seniors & college students; $8 students age 13-18; FREE children age 12 and under). And they’ll be making a tour stop at Caffe Lena in Saratoga Springs at 7pm on Sunday ($16 in advance; $18 at the door).
