COLTON -- Colton Riverside Concert series presents Jamie Savage (Right) and Dave Ruch (Above) at 6:30 p.m. June 27 at the gazebo behind the Colton Museum.

Jamie Savage, a contemporary Adirondack singer-songwriter, celebrates the beauty, culture and natural history of the Adirondacks through music. He is inspired to write and sing about the places where he lives and works--the mountains, woods, waters, and people of the Adirondacks. In his song ‘Mountain Blood’ he calls the Raquette River a “partner in our lives, player in our dreams.”

Dave Ruch, a specialist in the performance of traditional and historical music and folklore, is proficient in a wide range of musical styles. He shares his research of regional folklore and musical traditions through performing, teaching, and other means.

The series of performances, weather permitting, is being held at the Gazebo behind the Museum at 95 Main Street in the hamlet of Colton overlooking the Raquette River. The rain location is the town’s large covered Pavilion on Sugar Bush Lane in the hamlet of South Colton. Signs will be posted if the performance is moved from the Gazebo to the Pavilion.

Audience participants should bring their own chairs or blankets for sitting on the lawn in front of the Gazebo) Volunteers will be on hand to help people needing assistance.
