The East Greenbush Community Library in East Greenbush is once again hosting its summer Music Series throughout the upcoming month of July. The concert series takes place on Wednesdays at 7pm, and although admission is free reservations are recommended because the EG Library concerts are one of the very few summertime concert series around Nippertown that are held indoors where seating is limited.

Here’s the 2014 schedule of free concerts at the East Greenbush Community Library:

July 2: Katsura Band
July 9: Peaceful Country
July 16: The Mark Capon Trio
July 30: Marty Wendell & His Tour Band
