Music in the Park returns this summer with another exciting lineup of artists! This fun and family-friendly series of summer events will be held every Thursday (weather permitting!) during July & August from 6p – 8p. What better way to enjoy this event than with a delicious meal from one of our many restaurants that offer outdoor seating? Many of our shoppes will be open as well! Event programs will be available at the Visitor Center (and on the hammondsport.org homepage) in the coming weeks and include more information about the performing artists, our sponsors, and general area info.
The Town Pants : About the artist
With a decades worth of headlining Roots and Celtic festivals to selling out nights at rock venues, The Town Pants’ own brand of Celtic roots rock rebel spans five albums so far, backed up with a legendary live show that’s garnered them fans internationally from New York to Norway. And while The Pacific Northwest may not be the first place you would expect to hear rollicking Celtic roots music, The Town Pants are determined to change that. The Vancouver, Canada-based band combines aspects of Irish traditional, folk rock, and roots Americana; fusing
their signature dual lead vocals to create their own unique brand of high energy “West Coast Celtic.” That remains in the heart and head long after the music stops. There are lots of Celtic folk rock bands out there, but rarely does a band has this combination of passion, energy, animation, and spirit that makes for some of the most imaginative songwriting you’ll find in the genre. With performances in hundreds of cities and over a dozen countries, The Town Pants have become a consistent audience favorite at Celtic, Folk, World, Irish, and even Rock festivals throughout the United States, Canada, and in Europe. The band’s latest release, titled “Connections”, contains 15 songs and was recorded over a 2 day period in Vancouver in the spring of 2015. It is a collection of the band’s favorite rowdy sing-a-long songs. Summer 2018 Artist Lineup
