August 1
will bring The Buskers. The Buskers are described as “folk impurists with a smart, distinctive voice and a kitchen sink repertoire of influences and instruments from jug band to jazz to roots rock.” Check them out at www.thebuskers.com.


Performing August 8 and new to Concerts on the Bluff is Runaway Home, a duo on tour from Nashville, TN. Runaway Home is described as “easy on the ears and gentle on the soul.” They bring a sound of “raw rhythm guitar with a hint of bluesy mandolin wrapped in the soothing strains of a mountain fiddle. The group has blended their vocals into carefully crafted and soulful harmonies that invite listeners to sit back and connect with the music.” Learn more about this remarkable group at https://www.runawayhomemusic.com/home.

Don’t miss Plattsburgh favorite, The Duo Plus One, featuring John Seiden, Neil Wright, and a new “plus one” vocalist on August 15. Audiences love their music, featuring classic tunes from folk, country and a little bit of jazz.


The concert series will wrap up this year on August 22 with Pink Magnolia, Plattsburgh High School Jazz Combo. Directed by Patrick Towey, Pink Magnolia features a very talented group of PHS student musicians. Don’t miss your chance to hear them perform!
