Folk musician Dan Berggren performs Tuesday

Posted

OLD FORGE — On Tuesday, Aug. 16, at 4 p.m., the Old Forge Library’s Music in the Gazebo series will feature Adirondack musician and songwriter,  Dan Berggren, performing traditional and original folk music. 

A tradition-based songsmith, Berggren writes with honesty, humor and a strong sense of place. His songs explore the many dimensions of home, hard-working folks, taking care of our planet and each other. 

While his roots are firmly in the Adirondacks where he was raised, Berggren’s music has branched out across many borders. The award-winning educator and musician has entertained audiences from Kentucky to Michigan, Belgium to Bulgaria, and Zimbabwe to Transylvania. 

The large lawn area surrounding the library gazebo offers the opportunity to spread out and enjoy this free, family-friendly entertainment. Listeners are asked to bring their own blanket or folding chair. In case of inclement weather, the audience is invited to sit under the big tent on the lawn. 

The Friends of the Old Forge Library will offer a used “book mart” during each Tuesday concert if weather permits. Listeners are invited to stop by their booth and load up on used books, dvds, puzzles and more. Donations are appreciated.

The concert is free to attend.
