Guitarist to be featured at inn

GILBERTSVILLE — Guitarist Mike Davis will be at The Major’s Inn in Gilbertsville on Wednesday, July 31, for the third in the “Music at The Major’s” summer concert series.

Davis plays a blend of musical styles, including sounds from Motown, rock ’n’ roll, and other upbeat funky styles. 

Weather permitting, the concert will be held on the side lawn of the inn. It will be moved inside if it rains.

Refreshments will be available, and the gift shop will be open.

Donations will go toward the ongoing restoration of the 55-room inn, built in the 1890s and listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The inn is on state Highway 51 in the village. For more information, call 607-783-2780 or 607-783-2967. 

Workshop to end with performance

FRANKLIN — Music at the Market on July 28 will welcome Skinny Cow, a songwriting workshop directed by Bill Steely, a singer/songwriter who lives part time in Franklin.

Workshop participants come from as far away as Scotland and Seattle, according to a media release.

There are 15 musicians and two instructors who will spend three days writing and performing before coming to the market. Ten of the participants are returnees from last season.

Last year the workshop focused on the Nashville Perspective. This year the keynote speakers, Tracy Grammer and Jim Henry, will emphasize folk music, but not all will perform in the folk genre.

Franklin Farmers’ Market is hosted by Franklin Local and sponsored by the Greater Franklin Chamber of Commerce.

The market is open 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the lawn of Chapel Hall in the village of Franklin with music performances from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. 

Covered outside cafe seating is provided and food and pastries are available from market vendors.

The Franklin Farmers Market presents live music every Sunday through Columbus Day.
