A Place for Folk

Thursday, October 25th, 2012

For years now, many Capital Region music fans have known the First Unitarian Society of Schenectady’s wonderful Whisperdome as A Place for Jazz, but that’s about to change…

No, A Place for Jazz isn’t moving on to a new venue. It’s staying right there. But now jazz will be sharing the space with folk music, as a new concert series, A Place for Folk, has also moved into the Whisperdome.

A Place for Folk has scheduled a series of six concerts for their inaugural season, which kicks off on Saturday with the Chicago trio, Sons of the Never Wrong.

Tix are $16; students $14. A season ticket – providing one ticket for each of the six concerts – is also available for $84.

Doors open at 7:30pm; music begins at 8pm.

Here’s the line-up for A Place for Folk’s 2012-2013 inaugural season:
