The Nellies

The 5th Annual Riverlink Jamboree took place Saturday, August 3, 2013, at Amsterdam’s Riverlink Park. Three bands performed throughout the evening and this blog will present photos from each performance in separate blog entries.

The second band performing at the Riverlink Jamboree are the Nellies an Albany, NY based, rootsy, alt-country, Americana band. The band is driven by core singer-songwriter duo, Karen Ann Gilpin (acoustic guitar/banjo) and Peggy Lecuyer (mandolin/harmonica) who both contribute driving rhythms and beautiful two-part harmonies to their songs. They are joined by Gene Lemme who keeps The Nellies in line on the upright bass.  Joining them for Jamboree is Kevin Maul on Beard guitar and Mark Frederick on fiddle.

  1. Awesome shots Jerry!

    • Thanks Raymond! My Riverlink Concerts photos started as a personal challange to improve my ability to shoot quick, informal portraits. Three years later, I am a board member of the Amsterdam Waterfront Foundation and continue to use my photography to promote Riverlink Concerts, the jewel of the Mohawk-Greater Amsterdam Riverlink Park and the City of Amsterdam.

  2. Hi Jerry – Peggy here from The Nellies – Great shots! Thanks!

    • The Nellies were fantastic! The addition of Mark Frederick on electric fiddle this year really added another dimension to your music.

      Thanks for being such captivating subjects! I still have to get the ultimate Peggy Lecuyer closeup. I think it’s those huge sunglasses or the fact that you rarely stand still. Maybe next year!
