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.

The 4th Annual Riverlink Jamboree


Four acts with over six hours of continual entertainment, presented free of charge by the Amsterdam Waterfront Foundation and its corporate sponsors. It was another steamy Saturday afternoon with rain looming on the horizon. Luckily, the rain held off and breezes off the Mohawk River helped move the cloud cover. The clouds were actually shielding us from the scorching sun, now very present with little shade. It was hot and so were some of the groups performing at Amsterdam’s Riverlink Park. The docks were full of boats, the Riverlink Café full of diners and the park, unfortunately was not full of people to hear the wonderful music presented. This was the first concert starting at 3pm this year. I’m sure many were confused because a good number showed up at the usual 7pm starting time.

I have many images to share that took me many hours to process. This week Rebecca Webster of the Recorder beat me to the punch, posting both her story and photos of the concert to the online version of the Recorder last night. She did an outstanding job. Please check out her article.

Here are my photos:
