The Big Easy Playboys are traveling to New York State from New Orleans on a short summer tour and Long Lake is excited to have them. From Louisiana favorites from Jambalya to the Zydeco Boogaloo, folks will be dancing the evening away. The Big Easy Playboys are based in New Orleans, but draw heavily from the Cajun/Zydeco culture thriving all around Louisiana.

On July 26th at 7pm come out to the Mt. Sabattis Pavilion at 7pm for the ALCA’s production of “Loves Labours Lost.” Love and desire face off against logic and reason as a group of determined high school boys swear off the distraction and temptation of the opposite sex. That is, until they realize that the Princess and her court have just moved into town in this innovative 60-minute adaptation of the classic Shakespearean comedy.
Loves Labours Lost, Free performance, Pavilion, Sunday, June 26thThis performance is free.
Summer 1914. In order to dedicate themselves to a life of study, the King and his friends take an oath to avoid the company of women for three years. No sooner have they made their idealistic pledge than the Princess of France and her ladies-in-waiting arrive, presenting the men with a severe test of their high-minded resolve.
Shakespeare’s sparkling comedy delights in championing and then unravelling an unrealistic vow, and mischievously suggesting that the study of the opposite sex is in fact the highest of all academic endeavours. Only at the end of the play is the merriment c ... Read more
Timothy Seaman, acoustic soloist, will give a concert at the United Methodist Church in Long Lake on Thursday, July 23, at 7:30 p.m. Mr. Seaman is a multi-instrumental player from Williamsburg, Virginia, whose focus is the hammered dulcimer and flute.
An English graduate of the College of William & Mary and veteran of nineteen years teaching school, Mr. Seaman has been involved in music, making it his sole endeavor since 1994. His music is a vibrant, self-styled blend of Appalachian, Classical, Celtic, and contemporary approaches using techniques he has developed to form arrangements with more emotional impact, narrative effect, and variety. He brings together an eclectic blend of music styles unlike any other. Sometimes the deep voice of his four-octave extended-range hammered dulcimer takes on the heart of a Chopin ballade, and at other times the festivity of an old-time mountain dance, or a glistening contemporary interpretation of a white-water canoe ride, or a highland hike among fir trees.
At a Seaman concert expect to be exhilarated, amused, awed, surprised, personally involved, and enriched by r ... Read more
