Eight Step presents Cheryl Wheeler with Kenny White
7:30 p.m. Friday, September 30, GE Theater at Proctors
His simple songs have been hits for mainstream stars such as Suzy Bogguss and Dan Seals, recorded by everyone from Bette Midler to Maura O’Connell, Peter Paul & Mary, Juice Newton and Garth Brooks; then Kathy Mattea, Holly Near and Melanie. While not strictly an activist artist, her hit song “If It Were Me” has garnered a lot of attention in this era of school shootings. A long-time audience favourite, his appearances on 8th Step stages have included multiple album release gigs, a sold-out duet with Christine Lavin and as part of the blockbuster “On a Winter’s Night” with Patty Larkin, Cliff Eberhardt and John Gorka.
Getting to Universal Preservation Hall, Saratoga Springs:
Bee Gees Gold: The Tribute
7:30 p.m. on Friday, September 23, Grande Salle at the UPH
Backed by a live band, this Vegas Bee Gees Tribute recreates the look and sound of the Bee Gees from the 60s to the late 70s, with their unique falsetto voices that made them legends. Perform hits such as “Massachusetts”, “I Started a Joke”, to the latest Disco classics, “Stayin’ Alive”, “You Should Be Dancing”, and more.
Caffe Lena presents Darlingside
7:30 p.m. on Friday, September 30, Grande Salle at the UPH
If Darlingside’s debut album Birds Say (2015) focused on the past through nostalgia, and their second, Extralife (2018), envisioned uncertain futures, Fish Pond Fish stands firmly in the present, gazing at what is here, now. Dave Senft (bass), Don Mitchell (guitar, banjo), Auyon Mukharji (violin, mandolin) and Harris Paseltiner (cello, guitar) created a natural story in the song by taking us to gardens, almond trees, rows of orchards, down to the bottom of the ocean and under the stars.
