On July 18, a special Friday evening concert will be held in conjunction with the Erie Canal Bike Tour. Hey Jude, the Tribute will perform. This will be a dialogue-based performance, taking the audience on a trip that visits the many phases of John and Paul's songwriting during their time in the Beatles.

On July 22, Lucky Tubb will perform. A musical heir of Ernest Tubb, Lucky's music is straight-up honky tonk, rendered in classic five piece hillbilly style.

On July 29, The McKrells will perform. Celtic-inspired songwriter Kevin McKrell was a founding member of the Celtic band Donnybrook Fair. He and his hot picking band have performed in theaters, clubs and festival stages across the United States, Canada, Ireland and Scotland.

Murali Coryell, son of guitar legend Larry Coryell, is a powerhouse blues guitarist. Put together, they have a sound that is all their own.

The series will conclude on August 12 with a performance by Funk Evolution, the official party band of the Capital District. They play a high energy mix of classic funk, R&B and soul, mixing hits that span 40 years.

Each concert, except the July 18 show, will take place on Tuesday evening from 7-9 p.m. on the lawn of NBT Bank, corner of Mohawk and Church streets. Bring lawn chairs and blankets. The rain location will be the Arkell Auditorium at the Canajoharie High School.
