Skeeter Creek at Riverlink Park


Amsterdam, New York has a beautiful asset on the Mohawk River in the form of Riverlink Park. Called the best boat docking site on the Mohawk River, it offers such amenities as a restaurant, electric hook ups, pump out station, laundry and showers for boaters. One of the best features is the Riverlink Park Concert Series organized by the Amsterdam Waterfront Foundation. The free concerts originally scheduled for Saturday evenings during the months of July and August, have expanded to June and September adding more concerts and events down by the riverside. For a schedule of activities please visit the Riverlink Concerts website. While you’re there, please donate to help the Amsterdam Waterfront Foundation to continue to present these wonderful concerts for the public to enjoy.

Spring Fling 2016


Amsterdam, New York celebrates Spring with a street festival! Time to get outside, enjoy the weather and your neighbors. This year’s event was bigger than ever thanks to Mayor Mike Villa and the Recreation Department’s Director Rob Spagnola and his assistant Samantha Bonnano.  With rain forecast for the afternoon, most people visited in the morning. What a great event to bring Amsterdam’s community together.

A Spark Ignites in Downtown Amsterdam


 

IMG_0093

A creative spark ignites downtown Amsterdam at Sharpshooters on Main Street.  Every Tuesday night from 8-11pm, local musicians get together to hone their craft. What a great idea that is bringing much needed life back to the downtown area. Where else can you go to enjoy free live music on a Tuesday night?

I first learned about the music venue from Tim Becker’s excellent article in the Mohawk Valley Compass.

Sharpshooters is not just an excellent billiards hall, they have many local brews on tap, pub food and a friendly atmosphere that is very welcoming. The owners have really struck a chord with open mic night. The local musicians are hungry to perform. Newcomers to the scene are anxious to share the spotlight and the more seasoned musicians just light up on stage as they rock out to some classic tunes. The music is loud and unapologetic. I was especially impressed by a young woman named Emily Shuttleworth who sang solo and also performed with a young man who went by the acronym Q oNe A. They told a story onstage with a creative fusion of rap and country music that was very well done.

Roosevelt Dime at Amsterdam’s Riverlink Park


On Saturday, August 8, 2015, the Riverlink Park Summer Concert Series presented Roosevelt Dime.

Brooklyn-based Roosevelt Dime takes listeners on a journey through the whole of American roots music…from Americana and Memphis soul to “Mardi-Gras”—a bedrock of New Orleans rhythms that brings driving, melodic banjo, fat-back blues guitar, pure honky-tonk harmonies, and deliciously dirty vocals along for the ride. It makes for a groove so inspired The New York Times has called Roosevelt Dime “a perpetual crowd pleaser.”

Triskele at Amsterdam’s Riverlink Park


Triskele, an all female Celtic band from Albany NY. They are known for their stunning harmonies, singing the Gaelic language and for their Irish wit. These ladies perform traditional, original and some modern Celtic/Irish music. Triskele not only revitalizes the Gaelic language, but weaves history and traditions about growing up in Ireland lending a deeper appreciation of aural history. Most importantly, they’re fun!

Hot Club of Saratoga


Riverlink Park in Amsterdam came alive Saturday night with the sound of gypsy swing. Hot Club of Saratoga, upstate New York’s premiere gypsy swing quintet, played a repertoire reflecting the spirit and style originated by Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli most prominent in the 1930’s. The band consists of Chad Tallman on solo guitar, Chuck Kish on rhythm guitar, Tucker Callander on violin, Jonathan Greene on clarinet and Dylan Perillo on string bass.

Thanks to the efforts of the Amsterdam Waterfront Foundation, the Riverlink Concert Series presents free concerts every Saturday night at 7pm.
