That’s right – Graham Parker! The legendary British rocker turned solo singer-songwriter brings his brilliant tunes and sharp wit to Cooperstown.

The Brigadoons Saturday, December 3, 2011
7:30 PM Sterling Auditorium Cooperstown Central School

The Brigadoons bring to the stage a brand of upbeat Celtic music which has become increasingly popular over the years. Hailing from Glengarry, Ontario, their music ranges from quick tempo reels and jigs to traditional Strathspeys and airs. From original compositions to favorite standards, an evening with The Brigadoons will surely leave you tapping your feet and smiling.

Wiggins & Harris Saturday, January 14, 2012

7:30 PM The Otesaga Resort Hotel

The ultimate acoustic blues duo, Phil Wiggins and Corey Harris will provide lots of smoke for the January show. Their sound, coupling Wiggins’ unique harmonica with Harris’ virtuosity on Delta and Piedmont style guitar, pinpoint the joining of African and European music into that unique American music, the blues. As Phil says, "it’s about the groove."
Nora Jane Struthers Saturday, February 4, 2012
7:30 PM The Otesaga Resort Hotel
Nora Jane Struthers draws on folk, bluegrass, and roots to spin beautiful musical tapestries. Her angelic voice invokes the heart and soul of Appalachia. Come hear for yourself why critics call her the next great Americana performer.
Eilen Jewell Saturday, March 3, 2012
7:30 PM The Otesaga Resort Hotel

She’s back! When Eilen Jewell and her band played Concert Series in November 2008, many in the audience told us that she was the best artist we’d ever had. Eilen’s mastery of different genres, from the countrified gospel of The Sacred Shakers to the Loretta Lynn tribute of Butcher Holler to her own originals immersed in traditional folk music, Chicago blues and 1960’s garage rock will have you on your feet – again!
