Ives Park concert series gearing up in Potsdam
Wednesday, August 15, 2018 - 11:38 am

The Saratoga Springs-based Fenimore Blues will perform Sept. 8 at 6 p.m. at the 2018 Ives Park Concert Series. The show is free and open to the public. The seven-piece band performs an eclectic mix of blues, R&B, and rock. The powerful vocals of Mary Beth Arcidiacono are backed by two guitarists and fellow musicians on keyboards, saxophone, bass, and drums, with band members doubling on harmonica and accordion. This combination enables the group to perform a range of styles and a varied repertoire, drawing on music notables from Bonnie Raitt to Aretha Franklin, Buddy Guy to Van Morrison, the Neville Brothers to the Allman Brothers, the Rolling Stones to Imelda May, BB King to Nora Jones. The free series will run concerts every Saturday from Aug. 25 through Sept. 29.
