The August 17th Summer Saturdays Arts Series celebrates the pleasures of Our Country Market and features the musicianship of Harmonica Vic and Cinde C-Scharp , better known as Dark Road Duo. The free Arts Series is held each Saturday at the Perry Festival Plaza on Main Street in downtown Perry.
Dark Road Duo will liven up the market with their playlist of traditional blues, country and folk music. Harmonica Vic hails from a very musical family - his Mom was his first harmonica teacher. He has performed with the great Harmonica Zeke, country artist Jimmy Kaye, and legendary piano man Stan Szelest.
C-Scharp rounds out the duo, providing warm harmonies, rhythm guitar, and lead vocals. Her singing career began after she was heard singing to a jukebox one night by members of the Strae Katz. That night she became their female vocalist. She has performed as lead vocalist in many regional bands, and has provided backup harmonies for recording artists Nick Angelo and the Killing Floor.
Over 15 farm vendors will present a variety of the best produce and homemade products summer has to offer at the Perry Farmers’ Market. The market runs from 8:30 am until 12:30 pm. Visitors will find pleasant, shaded outdoor seating in a festive downtown atmosphere. Snacks, meals and drinks are available – a great opportunity to take in the sights, sounds and tastes of a Western New York summer!
