Hayner’s Lucky Lemonade concerts upcoming

TROY — The Lucky Lemonade Concerts are a free series in Hayner’s courtyard, four Tuesdays in July at 7:30 p.m. The theme of the series is current, regional, original music featuring local musicians. It is not necessary to bring a chair to these concerts but room is available up front if you want to bring a blanket. What could be better than fresh air, good music and some delicious secret-recipe lemonade to share with friends on a sweet summer evening? Special thanks to the Friends of Hayner for supporting this community concert series.

The 2016 series begins on Tuesday, July 5, with Daniel Dye and the Miller Road Band. Dye is a singer-songwriter who performs traditional American folk music with 3 classically trained string musicians.

Sawgrass will perform Tuesday, July 12. Relentless instrumentals color this high-energy old-time bluegrass sound.

Guitarist Mark Kroos will be here July 19 with his double neck guitar. He characterizes his sound as open harmonies with polyphonic textures and percussive tapping techniques.

The Rachel Brown Duo will close the 2016 series on Tuesday, July 26. Rachel Brown and Bill Watson (cello) will bring classic Americana and country favorites as well as her own original pieces. This immensely gifted musician will weave country with the blues and classic pop, making the music bend to her own ear. As a special feature to this concert, wine will be sold by the glass from our local vineyard, Brandeberry Winery.
