The Bacon Brothers


-

Bound by blood and a mutual love of American roots music, The Bacon Brothers have spent the past quarter-century in a creative whirl, funneling their shared DNA into a genre-bending sound. They call that sound “Forosoco” – a blend of folk, rock, soul and country influences, delivered by two songwriters who were born to collaborate – and it’s taken the siblings across the world, from shows in Japan to performances at American landmarks like Carnagie Hall and the Grand Ole Opry.

The Bacon Brothers turn a new page with their eleventh release, Erato, whose five songs showcase the duo at their diverse peak. It’s an EP of dynamic contrasts: quiet moments and big payoffs, organic instrumentation and electronic textures, self-penned songs and high-profile collaborations. For Michael and Kevin Bacon, it’s also the continuation of a story that began long ago in Philadelphia, where the two siblings were raised on a soundtrack of 1970s singer/songwriters, Philly soul singers and classic rock bands.

1000 Islands—Alexandria Bay, NY (July 1, 2024) — Adventure awaits this summer in the scenic 1000 Islands at the 23rd Annual Paddle for Betterment Poker Run! Join paddlers of all ages and skill levels on Saturday, July 27th for a morning of outdoor excitement and community spirit along the St. Lawrence River.

Hosted by The Foundation for Community Betterment, this event promises a blend of natural beauty and charitable giving. All proceeds from the Paddle Poker Run benefit local organizations, community projects, and individuals in need, making each paddle stroke a meaningful contribution. This year alone the organization supported over 20 local recipients, meeting over $45,000 of immediate needs in Alexandria Bay.
The adventure begins at 9 a.m. sharp at Alexandria Bay’s Village Beach, rain or shine. Participants will embark on a 3.5-mile journey through the picturesque riverside course known affectionately as “paddlers’ paradise.” Kayaks, canoes, skiffs, and stand-up paddleboards will dot the shoreline as paddlers collect cards to build their poker hands.

Following the paddle, an awards and recipient ceremony at Scenic View Park Pavilion will honor participants and beneficiaries, as well as provide breakfast and raffles for all paddlers.
Paddlers can look forward to competing for exciting prizes, including GRAND PRIZES for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in both adult and youth divisions. A $2,500 gift certificate to Sundance Leisure Pool & Spa is available for the lucky individual who pulls off a Royal Flush! A “Joker Card Draw” and “Last Paddler Back to the Beach” add an extra dash of excitement to the competition. All paddlers have the chance to win fantastic door prizes generously donated by local businesses.
New in 2024, adult paddlers can test their luck by purchasing an ADDITIONAL hand for a donation to Betterment. A Crystal Clear Bottom Kayak will be raffled off as well!

PADDLE FOR BETTERMENT isn’t just about the prizes; it’s about coming together as a community to paddle for a purpose and make a real difference. Whether you’re an experienced paddler or a first timer, this is an event everyone can love and enjoy.
Trevor Garlock, a member of the organizing team, shared, “There’s tranquility and camaraderie when you’re out on the water with so many other amazing people. Paddling and experiencing ‘Betterment’ is simply beautiful to be a part of. Our community takes great pride in hosting this special event, offering residents and visitors a chance to experience the beauty of our region while making a direct impact in our community.”

Williams Branch at the Opera House


-

When it comes to music, there’s a closeness among family members that cannot be overstated. Harmonies are sweeter, rhythms are tighter, and emotions are heightened. For Williamson Branch, music and family have been melding for three generations. Despite a varied background that incorporates bluegrass, country, gospel and dance, this family band are traditionalists in every sense, carrying on a sound that springs from the very roots those archival styles imply.
Their polished approach to music helped propel their single, Blue Moon Over Texas to the # 1 spot on the RMR Bluegrass Chart for 7 weeks. They garnered the award for Valley Star Family Vocal Group of the Year while Melody Williamson was recognized as the International Bluegrass Music Association’s Momentum Vocalist of the Year in 2020. Since their formation in 2014 Williamson Branch has appeared on hundreds of stages including, The Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Bluegrass First Class in Asheville, NC, Thomas Point Beach Bluegrass Festival, Brunswick, ME, The Central Canadian Bluegrass Awards, Bill Gaither’s Fall Homecoming, and Guy Penrod’s Gospel Music Showcase.
Williamson Branch’s last 4 recordings for Pinecastle Records have elicited rave reviews while their social media following has grown to over 457,000 bolstered by several videos with tens of millions of views. Individually they’ve been given the honorary titles, Members of the West Virginia Country Music Hall of Fame, Daughters of Bluegrass, Kids on Bluegrass, and Tomorrow’s Bluegrass Stars, but it’s their stage show that inspired Bluegrass Today to write, “put this band on your “must see” list.”
Tickets are $20/$25 (Side Sections/Center Sections)
Students (18 and under) are $10 with ID Checks at the Door.

Tophouse at the Clayton Opera House


-

Tophouse is a Montana-raised Americana/Folk band made up of Jesse Davis, Joe Larson, Will Cook and Andy LaFave. Created in 2015, the band began as a duo when two Music Composition majors at the University of Montana, guitarist/songwriter Jesse Davis and violinist William Cook, realized they loved playing music together and wanted to start – immediately. Lacking both a drummer and a singer, the first iteration of Tophouse was a virtuosity ‘Celtic folk’ instrumental duo with next-to-no connections. Joseph Larson, a singer, songwriter and guitar/banjo player joined the band in 2016. They moved to Nashville in October 2019. In 2022, Andy LaFave the pianist joined the group.

Fran Lebowitz: A State of the Union Conversation


-

In a cultural landscape filled with endless pundits and talking heads, Fran Lebowitz stands out as one of our most insightful social commentators.

Her essays and interviews offer her acerbic views on current events and the media – as well as pet peeves including tourists, baggage-claim areas, after-shave lotion, adults who roller skate, children who speak French, or anyone who is unduly tan. The New York Times Book Review calls Lebowitz an “important humorist in the classic tradition.” Purveyor of urban cool, Lebowitz is a cultural satirist whom many call the heir to Dorothy Parker.

She can also be seen in various documentary films including the American Experience series on New York City, as well as Mapplethorpe: Look at the Pictures (2016), Regarding Susan Sontag (2014), and Superstar: The Life and Times of Andy Warhol (1990), among others. In 2010 Martin Scorsese directed a documentary about Lebowitz for HBO titled Public Speaking. A limited documentary series, Pretend It’s a City, also directed by Martin Scorsese, premiered on Netflix in 2021, and was nominated for the 2021 Emmys in the Outstanding Documentary Or Nonfiction Series category. In 2021 she was given the Forte dei Marmi Festival della Satira Lifetime Achievement Award and was a 2021 Foreign Press Honorary Awardee – an award given by the Foreign Press Correspondents Association & Club USA.

Originally conceived in 1995 in St. Catharines, Ont., Canada, The Strictly Hip is now based in Buffalo, performing to sold-out venues across North America. The band provides a nostalgic adventure through The Tragically Hip’s catalog of favorites. The Strictly Hip will bring the soundtrack of a million campfires, road trips and backyard parties to the concert stage.

Clayton Community Band Performs


-

Our band is made up of members that come from all over the North Country. Although many live in Clayton, Watertown or surrounding communities in Jefferson County, some of our musicians travel from St. Lawrence and Lewis Counties. We have a few members from even farther away who spend summers in the Clayton area and we welcome them back to play with us each summer season. We also come from many different walks of life. Some of our performers are life-long musicians either as performers or educators in local schools, some are professionals in other areas, and some have retired from their careers and are just looking for a fun and relaxing way to get involved in the community. Despite our differences we all come together each week to rehearse the music that we love sharing with our dedicated audiences. All members are listed in the programs for each of our concerts.

Tickets are $8 & $6 (Balcony Center & everywhere else)

River Santa Festival – Alexandria Bay


Join us for our Inaugural River Santa Festival!

There will be activities all day long including wagon rides!

Stick around for a special visit from Santa Claus!!

1000 Islands River Santa will take place December 14, 2024, from 10 a.m.- 1 p.m. on Upper James Street in Alexandria Bay!
Every child deserves to believe in Santa and to have a real Christmas. Our goal this year is to reach out to every child along the river and/or every child in need from anywhere in Northern New York. When Santa arrives at the village dock in Alexandria Bay by boat with a United States Coast Guard escort, he will be bringing gifts purchased with your donations and sponsorship. This committee is 100% volunteers and every dollar raised will go directly toward the purchase of gifts and the Backpack Program.
This money fed so many children in need through this wonderful program and the schools were beyond grateful for this additional help. This year with your help, we hope to put gifts in the hands of all the children again and to hopefully continue feeding as many children in need as possible through the Backpack Programs. We are also going to donate to three non-profit organizations in the area with the extra donation.
Take a look at the video of the link listed below and you will get an idea of what we accomplished in just four days the first year. This year will again be a festival with food and drink and music on a closed Upper James Street. Hay wagon rides will be offered as well. Many merchants will be open for shopping and eating.
