TROY – The third Lucky Lemonade Concert will be at 7:30 p.m. July 24 and will feature The WingWalkers Band.
Guitarist Michael Kalter, violinist Doug Hamilton and bassist Noah Cope decided to name their acoustic trio The WingWalkers Band to honor the daring acrobats that would balance on a sailing wing, shifting wind all around them, with no safety gear and nothing but their own instincts to keep the momentum.
Like these daredevils, this string ensemble speaks the language of the great American improvisational traditions. The group blends folk, bluegrass, Americana and swing to create a unique and progressive style, which it lends to original compositions, as well as a diverse pool of covers by artists such as Gnarls Barkley, Sting, The Young Bloods, Chris Issac, Janis Joplin, The Band, Paul Simon and Peter Rowan to name only a few.
The Lucky Lemonade concert series at Hayner is current, regional, original music on Tuesday nights in July. This free series is held in the courtyard and moved inside when the weather turns and always includes a big glass of summertime-recipe iced lemonade. This series, as well as the other events at the Hayner, are funded by the citizens of Troy and donors to the Friends of Hayner.
