Event description

Description

Thursday evenings this summer are reserved for our Harmonies on the Hudson Outdoor Concert Series! Relax on our beautiful lawn adjacent to the mansion and enjoy a FREE outdoor concert. Bring a blanket, chair and a picnic-children are welcome!

The Nellies are an Albany, NY based, rootsy, alt-country, Americana band. Karen Ann (acoustic guitar/banjo) and Peggy Lecuyer (mandolin/harmonica) are the core singer-songwriter duo who both contribute driving rhythms and beautiful two- part harmonies to their songs. They are joined by Gene Lemme (upright bass) and other stellar lead players. Also joining The Nellies at shows are an assortment of stellar lead players such as Kevin Maul. Peter Bearup, and Mike McMann, as well as others. You will find The Nellies’ energy contagious. Their fun-loving stage presence will put a smile on your face.

Karen Ann and Peggy write a number of the songs that The Nellies perform and combine them with well chosen covers performed by Fred Eaglesmith, Donna the Buffalo, The Grateful Dead, Kasey Chambers, Gram Parsons, Abigail Washburn, Bob Dylan and Gillian Welch as well as the inclusion of some favorite, traditional bluegrass songs.

The Nellies have proudly released their first CD in October of 2011 and are laying the musical groundwork for their next release. You will find The Nellies playing at a variety of events and venues in the greater Albany, NY area – please go to our gigs tab to see where we’ll be playing next and feel free to contact us to play at a venue near you!

This project is made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by the Greene County Council on the Arts.
