Alex Smith and Dan Berggren

Saturday, September 29 at 7:30 p.m. 

Adirondack folk & roots

SPONSOR: JANE JACOBS MUSIC FUND  

Veteran folksinger Dan Berggren and emerging singer-songwriter Alex Smith are united in their passion for songs that grow from the mountains. Their similarities far out-number their 40-year age gap: both were raised in small Adirondack towns, studied at St. Lawrence University, keep a keen ear out for local stories, and write songs that reach far beyond the Blue Line.
Alex and Dan are featured in the PBS documentary on Adirondack music, Songs to Keep.
