Summer is coming to an end, all the signs are there. In fact, it’s actually the last weekend of August, so we should be spending it doing something we love to do. I know there are a lot of people here in the Hudson Valley who would put live music at the top of this to-do list. Fortunately, we live in an area where we have great concert halls and a choice of places to go to see a live performance. Here are some concerts taking place this weekend in the Hudson Valley.
Bethel Woods Center for the Arts in Bethel kicks off the weekend with a big show. John Fogerty will take the stage at Bethel Woods tonight from 7:30 p.m. If you love CCR, you’re going to love seeing John Fogerty.
The Dutchess County Fair is taking place this weekend in Rhinebeck, and you can see Bruce in the US in the grandstand tomorrow August 28 from 8pm. Obviously, it’s a Bruce Springsteen tribute show, and a great one too.
The Bearsville Theater in Woodstock has an awesome show tonight. NRBQ will play from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. If you’ve never seen this fun band live, head to Woodstock tonight.
UPAC in Kingston presents Brit Floyd this Sunday August 29 at 8 p.m. It’s not just any Pink Floyd cover band. Brit Floyd is one of the best Pink Floyd tribute groups that has toured on TV and around the world. It’s the best thing to do after seeing Pink Floyd, which will never happen.
The Ashokan Center in Olivebridge is hosting the 2021 Summer Hoot today through Sunday, August 29. The Hoot takes place outside, rain or shine. It’s 3 days of live music with over 20 bands including favorites The Mammals, Jay Ungar and Molly Mason, Uncle Rock and more.
If live music is what you are looking for then this is a great weekend to be in the Hudson Valley. You have a choice of live shows, both indoors and outdoors. Enjoy!
