Schedule for 2020
St William’s on Long Point, Raquette Lake is open for the summer in creative ways.
We are excited to say that we will be hosting our Thursday Evening Programs on the Lake. The five Thursdays will literally be on the lake.
Due to the COVID we will not be hosting them in the church, but rather having the audience sit on their own boats to listen to the music. Come, relax, bring your own picnic, anchor your boat and enjoy the concerts.
Concerts will last one hour, starting at 6:30 pm. Some names you will recognize and some artists are new to us, but all have great reputations. Many thanks to the NY State Decentralization Program grant program and our sponsors for making this possible.

LAST CONCERT of the SEASON
Thursday, August 13th, Brillhart & Smith: Jake Brillhart and Alex Smith
Brillhart and Smith is the duo project of fiddler Jake Brillhart and singer-songwriter Alex Smith. The two have toured extensively for the past five years performing Brillhart’s Cape Breton-influenced fiddle tunes and Smith’s finely-crafted folk ballads, and the result is a show that is both energetic and contemplative, and that has captivated audiences from Iowa to Maine.
Past Concerts from our 2020 Season.
Thursday, August 6th, Shady Rill: Tom MacKenzie and Patti Casey
Patti is an award winning songwriter and her voice will melt your heart. Tom’s Banjo and voice are a perfect compliment, as the two of them weave their way through the many styles of traditional based songs and tunes with their Banjo, Guitar, Hammered Dulcimer, Flute, Keyboard, Ukulele, seated clogging, and fine humor.
Thursday, July 30th, Dan Duggan and Peggy Lynne
Peggy Lynn is known for ballads of strong women, children’s songs about nature, and bluesy songs of life and love. Dan Duggan is known nationally for his wizardry on hammered dulcimer and flat-picking guitar
Thursday, July 23rd, Drank The Gold: Oona Grady and James Gascoyne
Oona's deep Irish fiddle roots; James' compositional talents; and their shared passion for digging deep into traditional music and finding something new to say.
Thursday, July 16th, Dan Berggren
“Dan Berggren is the sound of the Adirondacks, as much as the water lapping against the granite shore of the lake or the loon echoing in the sunset or the wind tossing the spruce tops.” ~ Bill McKibben, author

These programs are made possible, in part, with funds from the Decentralization Program, a re-grant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by the Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts.
