Fenimore Blues, based in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., is a seven-piece band that performs an eclectic mix of blues, R&B, and rock. The powerful vocals of Mary Beth Arcidiacono are backed by two guitarists and fellow musicians on keyboards, saxophone, bass, and drums, with band members doubling on harmonica and accordion. This combination enables the group to perform a range of styles and a varied repertoire, drawing on music notables from Bonnie Raitt to Aretha Franklin, Buddy Guy to Van Morrison, the Neville Brothers to the Allman Brothers, Marvin Gaye to Joe Cocker, BB King to Nora Jones.

Whether performing at an outdoor festival or an intimate club, Fenimore Blues strives to have fun on stage and to create a contagious synergy with the audience. With this band, you can always count on a good dose of humor to liven things up.

Fenimore Blues performs regularly at area pubs and restaurants. The band’s summer schedule for 2018 included concerts at the Saratoga Race Course, Congress Park in Saratoga Springs, Niskayuna Town Square, the Tang Museum at Skidmore College, the town of Corinth’s Bicentennial Celebration, and Ives Park in Potsdam. Fenimore Blues also plays at private functions, such as corporate parties, fundraising events, and special occasions.

Bring Your Own Chainsaw to Raquette!

Punxsutawney Phil did NOT see his shadow at Gobbler’s Knob today, Feb. 2, 2016, Groundhog Day, and so Spring is just around the corner, but in Long Lake and Raquette Lake, we like to disagree.

While Mother Nature has been sparing with her precipitation this year, we make sure to plan plenty of activities to help pass the time of the long winter months.

Things to do in February, fan favorites are the Raquette Lake Winter Carnival, recently featured by I Love NY’s Twitter Feed!

I Love NY just featured Raquette Lake Winter Carnival in their Twitter Feed.

Now everyone always asks when the Ice Harvest in Raquette Lake is. Well, it’s again up to mother nature. We are going to be watching the temps and keeping an eye out, but the decision always rests with Raquette Lake Supply. They make the call and sometimes it’s a call that happens at the last minute. We promise to post the information when we get it. Keep an eye on the Facebook fan page for Raquette Lake for updates.

Long Lake kicks off President’s Week with an Ice Fishing Derby on Lake Eaton, a Basket Class and a week of fun-filled kids activities.
