Real Good for Free: Central Avenue Farmers Market

Thursday, August 13th, 2009

There’s nothing that goes better with organic food shopping than a little bit of acoustic music.

The Central Avenue Farmers Market is located in the parking lot of The Linda, so that might explain why the quality of musical entertainment is usually a little better there than at many other farmers markets all across Nippertown.

On Saturday mornings, the market opens at 9am and runs through 1pm, while the musicians usually perform from about 10am-12noon.

Here’s the slate of performers for the rest of August:

August 15: Lyl Harper
August 22: Kim and Reggie Harris
August 29: Todd Nelson

LIVE: The Pine Leaf Boys @ the Music Haven, 7/19

Thursday, July 23rd, 2009


The Pine Leaf Boys follow in the footsteps of legendary Cajun music kingpins Beausoleil, but they add more bite to the traditional sound, layering in rock and roll energy, a bit of funk and a lot of youthful exuberance.

The Grammy-nominated quintet rolled into Schenectady’s Central Park for a free concert at the Music Haven on Sunday, July 19, wrapping up their national tour before returning to their southwest Louisiana hometown of Lafayette.
