Talk on 1758 Shipwreck Floor Mural Painting at Fort William Henry Museum
Saturday, August 5, 11 am, free
Maritime archaeologist Joseph W. Zarzynski will present a 20-minute talk on Fort William Henry Museum’s new floor mural, a likeness of a 1758 Lake George bateau shipwreck. The program will provide background about the recently completed 32-ft.-long shipwreck mural painted by volunteers in the museum’s underwater archaeology room.
Zarzynski will also sign copies of his book, Ghost Fleet Awakened–Lake George Sunken Bateaux of 1758. The book reviews the role of British bateaux in the French & Indian War (1755–1763) at Lake George. These 25 to 35 ft. long warships were used by the British and French during that military conflict, and remnants of over 40 sunken bateaux lie in in the lake.
The talk and book signings will be at at the Sutler Shoppe at the museum.

Touba Family Foundation World Music Wednesdays
Wednesday, August 2, 2 pm
The traditional music trio Grosse Isle was born out of the “absolutely magical” collaboration between three exceptional musicians from Quebec and Ireland (The Irish Music Magazine). Together, Sophie Lavoie du Lac-St-Jean (fiddle, piano, vocal), André Marchand the legendary (guitar, vocal), and Fiachra O’Regan, Irish champion (uilleann pipes, whistle, banjo) shine with their rich and enveloping music. These musicians all have a national and international reputation as a duo mainly in the case of Sophie & Fiachra and within several groups for 40 years as far as André Marchand is concerned (La Bottine Souriante, Les Charbonniers de l’Enfer and others).
The band name refers to the story of the mass arrival of the Irish in the 19th century, on Grosse Île in the St. Lawrence River, as they fled the Great Famine. It is a striking encounter between two peoples and two cultures.

Caroga Arts Presents
Laufey with Caroga Arts Ensemble
Wednesday, August 2, 7 pm
Raised between Reykjavík and Washington, DC, Icelandic-Chinese singer-songwriter Laufey (pron. / lay-vay / ) makes music that is the byproduct of rich cultural heritages and mixed musical influences. Inspired in part by her mother, a classical violinist, Laufey took up piano and cello early on. But it wasn’t until deep-diving into her father’s record collection, consisting of jazz artists Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday, that she launched into her musical journey.
“I’m definitely very influenced by composers like Ravel and Chopin,” the 22-year old musician explains, “but when I discovered the Great American Songbook and the music of George Gershwin and Richard Rodgers, it felt like this middle ground between jazz and classical that suited me perfectly.”
