Be Here Now: Culture/Corey Harris @ Dale Miller

This one really took me by surprise. When award-winning chef Dale Miller opened his eponymous restaurant in downtown Albany last month, I wasn’t figuring that he’d be presenting world-class concerts as well as first-rate food.

But I’m pleased to say that I’m wrong.
Waaay wrong.

Legendary reggae band Culture shares the bill with acoustic bluesman Corey Harris at the inaugural event of the restaurant’s summer concert series, taking place at 6:30pm Wednesday, June 17. Culture – now led by Kenyatta Hill, the son of founding bandleader Joseph Hill – recorded one of reggae music’s true masterpiece albums, “Two Sevens Clash,” back in 1978.

The concert will take place in the restaurant’s Garden Terrace at the back of restaurant’s bar area at 30 South Pearl St.

And best of all, music fans will appreciate the low admission charge of just $10. When the same double-bill performed at the Bearsville Theater in Woodstock just last week, tickets were $25.

Can’t wait to see what Miller’s got up his sleeve for the rest of his upcoming live music performances…
