St. William’s on Long Point offers Outdoor
Thursdays on the Lake Concert Series, 2020
St William’s on Long Point, Raquette Lake is excited to still be able to offer our Thursday Evening Programs this year, but we had to make a few changes due to ongoing global health concerns. Unfortunately, we will not be providing barging this year to our boat accessible only location. If you have a boat on Raquette, we invite you to enjoy the concert from the comfort of your boat while our artists perform on the lawn of the church.
To our loyal supporters who will not be able to make it this year due to lack of transportation and we hope to resume our normal barging next summer.
The concerts will start at 6:30 p.m. and last for about an hour. We are excited to welcome back some familiar favorites who have been with us before and some new artists to share their gifts with us.
Our summer line up is as follows…
Thursday, July 16th Dan Berggren
“Dan Berggren is the sound of the Adirondacks, as much as the water lapping against the granite shore of the lake or the loon echoing in the sunset or the wind tossing the spruce tops.” ~ Bill McKibben, author
Thursday, July 23rd Drank the Gold: Oona Grady and James Gascoyne
Oona’s deep Irish fiddle roots; James’ compositional talents; and their shared passion for digging deep into traditional music and finding something new to say.
Thursday, July 30th Dan Duggan and Peggy Lynne
Peggy Lynne is known for ballads of strong women, children’s songs about nature, and bluesy songs of life and love. Dan Duggan is known nationally for his wizardry on hammered dulcimer and flat-picking guitar.
Thursday, August 6th Shady Rill: Tom MacKenzie and Patti Casey
Patti is an award winning songwriter and her voice will melt your heart. Tom’s banjo and voice are a perfect compliment, as the two of them weave their way through the many styles of traditional based songs and tunes with their Banjo, Guitar, Hammered Dulcimer, Flute, Keyboard, Ukulele, seated clogging, and fine humor.
Thursday, August 13th Brillhart & Smith: Jake Brillhart and Alex Smith
Brillhart and Smith is the duo project of fiddler Jake Brillhart and singer-songwriter Alex Smith. The two have toured extensively for the past five years performing Brillhart’s Cape Breton-influenced fiddle tunes and Smith’s finely-crafted folk ballads, and the result is a show that is both energetic and contemplative, and that has captivated audiences from Iowa to Maine.
These programs are made possible, in part, with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by the Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts.
Whether it’s boating, fishing, camping or hiking, Raquette Lake boasts all of it. Raquette Lake is also the birthplace of the Great Camps Architecture. William West Durant, the developer and entrepreneur, envisioned luxurious rustic estates to rejuvenate in the healthy mountain air. Adirondack Great Camps, Pine Knot, Uncas and Sagamore are three extraordinary places showcasing Durant’s vision. A visit to Raquette Lake is truly stepping back into a traditional way of life, but with elegant dining, great camps and a beautiful lake, Raquette Lake has something for everyone.
