Free Concerts Brighten Dark Tuesdays

STILLWATER – The race track in Saratoga Springs may be quiet on Tuesdays, but Saratoga Battlefield will be alive with music.  Friends of Saratoga Battlefield are sponsoring a series of free lunchtime concerts at Saratoga National Historical Park’s visitor center at noon on each of the Tuesdays in August. Bring a lunch and listen to a different program each week. The first was held on August 4 with harpist Elizabeth Huntley, much to the enjoyment of park visitors. The remaining concert schedule is as follows:

August 11 – Rich Bala

Find out how waterways and canals shaped New York’s history from colonial times to the end of the 19th century on a musical tour by acclaimed folk singer Rich Bala.

August 18– Tom Akstens and Neil Rossi

The neighboring Adirondack State Park is the largest wilderness area east of the Mississippi River, and renowned for outdoor recreation. Once it was home to loggers, miners, farmers and hermits.  Learn about their lives and work through songs presented by Tom Akstens and Neil Rossi.

August 25 – Fort Ticonderoga Fife and Drum Corps

Enjoy 18th Century martial music at its best. Hear the songs that heartened armies and gave them direction during the Revolutionary War presented by Fort Ticonderoga’s Fife and Drum Corps.

Saratoga Arts made this program possible with a 2015 Community Arts Grant funded by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.


Saratoga National Historical Park offers a wide variety of programs throughout the year. For further information, contact the park at (518) 670-2985, or visit www.nps.gov/sara.
