High on the Hog Plays at the Jay Green!

Saturday, July 6, 6 pm

Bring your picnic dinners down to the Jay Green on for an outdoor concert with High on the Hog! From the heart of the Adirondacks Mountains, High on the Hog was borne of southern Appalachian Fiddle Tunes, country songs, and homemade Adirondack originals. At home under a festival tent or a living room, High on the Hog draws on the simplicity of strings and voice to bring you an authentic musical tradition. Multi-instrumentalists Bill Chamberlain, Tyler Dezago, and Marion Hoelzel bring forth strong driving melodies on fiddle, mandolin, and guitar, swapping instruments and sharing harmonies. Rain location: The Amos and Julia Ward Theater, 15 Parkside Road, Jay, right behind the Jay Green and Gazebo!
