9/12 Cosy Sheridan. Cosy first appeared on the national folk scene in 1992 winning both songwriting contests at the prestigious Kerrville Folk Festival and Telluride Bluegrass Festival.  The Boston Globe covered her music calling her “one of the best new singer/songwriters”. She has been on the road ever since, playing clubs, concert halls (including Carnegie Hall) and coffeehouses across the country. 

9/26: Les Brers Unplugged is one of several musical identities crafted by the ubiquitous brothers
Sisti, and is their acoustic homage to the music of the Allman Brothers Band.

10/10: Jes Sheldon calls Sherburne, NY home, but her powerful vocals are known throughout the
Upstate area. This woman can sing anything. She is accompanied by Mike Davis on guitar.

10/24: Nationally recognized magician Leon Etienne offers the series a captivating change of pace.
Leon is a Utica success story. He has performed his stage magic all over the world.

11/07: Colin Aberdeen's rousing performance when he opened the May, 2019 concert with Blueprints made us anxious to have him back. We look forward to that night when we can welcome him back to the Unity Hall stage. In the meantime, we thank him for stepping up for Dusty Pas'Cal, who is unable to do his virtual concert. 'Tune-in' at 8pm om Saturday, November 7th to enjoy Colin's premiere.

11/21: The Hot Club of Saratoga is Upstate New York’s premier Gypsy swing ensemble. Their
ageless music reflects the spirit and style of Django Reinhardt.

12/05: John Kelsey is acknowledged by musicians and music fans to be one of Central New York’s
most accomplished guitarists. His stellar playing will be complemented with the impressive vocal
styling of Chad Plantz.

12/31 The Dust Devil Band's New Years Eve Virtual Concert/Party.  Kick 2020 outta here and welcome the New Year with The DDB! One of the most missed 2020 events was our annual Dust Devil Band Unity Hall benefit concert in October. We're delighted to announce that Ed Rosenburgh and the band are doing a special concert that premieres at 11pm on Thursday, December 31 and wraps-up with the arrival of 2021.

Honestly, it won't be the same as being there, but Ed and the Band promise it will be the next best thing... a set from the Unity Hall stage filmed by Juan Junco and Sandy Roe with equally top-notch audio and production by Silver City Studios and George Newton.

As with all of our virtual concerts, this one can be viewed on unityhall.com after the premiere, but staying up late to welcome in the new year with us starting at 11pm on Thursday, December 31 will make it extra special. Please join us!
