23Arts Music Festival Returns to Tannersville This Month

Tannersville is a cute, little mountaintop village with a handful of charming shops and eateries and some truly amazing views of the surrounding Hudson Valley. But it’s not particularly known as a center of cool music happenings. For the past five years, however, Green County’s 23Arts Initiative has been working to change that by presenting its annual 23Arts Summer Music Festival, which runs from July 13 to August 5.

“A series of pop-up style performances at a host of various venues…ranging from the traditional theater-style setting of Catskill Mountain Foundation’s Orpheum Film & Performing Arts Center, to an outdoor performance at Scribner’s Catskill Lodge with Hunter Mountain views, to lesser-expected venues such as the local Mountain Top Library and several village churches,” organizers say. “Each festival weekend highlights a different genre of jazz, classical, and indie and blues music and features a host of top young artists from New York City and New Orleans to South Africa and Chile.”

Weekend number one, July 13-15, is jazz-centric, with performances by singer Brianna Thomas and Newburgh saxophonist Camille Thurman. July 20-22 brings a presentation of Mahler’s full 10th symphony by the Argento New Music Project directed by Michael Galante. July 27-29 features Brooklyn punk blues diva Shilpa Ray; New Orleans prog rockers Hildegard; and the duo of Chilean guitarist and vocalist Camila Meza performing alongside Cape Town-based guitarist Derek Grippe. The series closes on August 5 with an outdoor set by pianist Damien Sneed and soprano vocalist Audrey DuBois Harris at Twilight Park, which overlooks the stunning Kaaterskill Falls. Several other artists are appearing throughout the four-weekend festival as well.

To light your fuse for this exciting fest, here’s Shilpa Ray and her band with the propulsive “Johnny Thunders Fantasy Space Camp”:

  • A Little Touch of Stardust: Where to Celebrate 50 Years of Woodstock in the Hudson Valley

    Here in the Hudson Valley and Catskills there’s a coziness about the Woodstock '69 50th anniversary. While tie dye and tolerance have never really gone out of style around here, those who’d like to mark the anniversary in some way have a number of local goings-on to slake their thirst for nostalgia, peace, love and music. Hey now, we still know how to brew that stuff from scratch.
