The town of New Lebanon’s “Music in the Park” series takes place this Sunday during the town’s Community Picnic.
Local musician Doug Banker will be performing with The Echoes and with Linda Worster at the August 21st Music in the Park event. Doug, a co-founder of Music in the Park and The Echoes band, has been “retired” from live performance during the pandemic. But he has tuned up his ukulele for this event!
The songs he will perform with Linda are intended as a tribute to David Grover, who passed away in November 2021. Dave played with Linda at Music in the Park events in 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2021. They performed together for many years at the New Lebanon Library as well. As an “honorary citizen” of New Lebanon, he will be missed. Come and sing along with Linda and Doug to show your love for this wonderful musician.
Food and beverages, including wine and craft beers, will be sold during the performances.

The Theater Barn, in New Lebanon, presents this year’s Agatha Christie play, Fiddlers Three, from June 23rd to July 3rd.
In Fiddlers Three, the last play written by Agatha Christie, a prank turns ugly when a group of young people attempt to hide a corpse. Trying to get their hands on more than a little inheritance, a group of young people hide the body of a dead tycoon. But what starts as a lark quickly becomes all too serious when they discover that the body is in fact a murder victim. A comedy about business and finance, with a strong undercurrent of criminal activity, the play combines humour, intricate plotting and a confounding murder.
The Stage described it as, “A different Agatha Christie. The play has deserted the familiar path of the whodunnit type thriller into the realms of black comedy. The action is played for laughs rather than chills, but once the story line has been established, there is plenty of humour and sparkle to carry it along to the usual surprise climax.”
The play was originally performed in Bristol in 1971, titled Fiddler’s Five. Following the performance, Christie revised the scripted, combined two characters and simplified several of the red herrings and Fiddlers Three was completed in 1972.
DATE/TIME: Thursday, June 23 through Sunday, July 3, 2022
