We are fortunate to have some of the best local musicians delighting our audiences at Amberations’ Fall Festivals. Prepare for an afternoon of talent you won’t want to miss…from start to finish Sunday, October 5th from 1 – 6 PM at the Otisco Lake Community Center.
The Salt Potatoes is a quartet led by our musical coordinator and emcee Harvey Nusbaum. They cover jazz, traditional fiddling (Irish and American), rock, contemporary folk, you name it. Somehow it all comes out with the unique Salt Potatoes sound, irreverent and serious at the same time.
Bob Lyna uses the hard edge side of folk-rock to attract a loyal following in his hometown of Auburn and Central New York. His wit puts any audience at ease plus he jams with a wide variety of musicians. For our festival he’ll be with his trio alternatively called Nuclear Ukulele or The West Niles Marching Jug Band.
Casual Plaid is a band well known to classmates and parents at Marcellus High School and is quickly becoming popular throughout Central NY. Their energy is genuine and they expertly apply it to bluegrass and the folkier side of pop. Not to be missed.
The SAMMY Award winning Easy Ramblers will bring their unique blend of “Easygrass” – a mixture of folk, bluegrass and roots oriented originals. This is their first time to Amberations’ Festival and we are excited to have them supporting our cause. You can hear them by going to the ReverbNation website and searching for “theeasyramblers.”
Since 2004 The Kambuyu Marimba Ensemble has played traditional dance music from Zimbabwe on seven marimbas (soprano through bass) and one hosho (aka maracas). Don’t miss them. They have a mellow steel drum sound with different grooves drifting in and out while the melody ties the musical lines together.
In addition to this great musical line up our event offers a great selection of unique foods, games, raffles, animals, our Treasure Hunt, Duck Race, animals and more. Bring your family and friends to enjoy this fun day and support a great cause, this event is fun rain or shine.
