Harmonies on the Hudson Concert Series: Greg Farley, Sep 5

https___cdn.evbuc.com_images_55899090_208586236981_1_original.jpg
Cleremont State Historic Site presents the Harmonies on the Hudson Outdoor Concert Series with recording artist, Greg Farley. Relax on the beautiful lawn adjacent to the mansion and enjoy a FREE outdoor concert. Bring a blanket, chair and a picnic. Children are welcome.

After ten years of playing and recording with the Felice Brothers and Conor Oberst, Greg Farley has just released his debut solo album, Taker Easy. For the album Farley mines his own history for stories of class struggle, nature, love, pain, work, and family, all set against the backdrop of the northeast. At the end of the day, Farley has nothing to lose and something to say, and he’s saying it from the gut.

This project is made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by the Greene County Council on the Arts.

DATE/TIME:
Thursday, September 5, 2019 / 6pm – 7:30pm
