Concerts for kids (with video)
July 29, 2010 - Bill Ackerbauer
In today's print edition, we published an item about Gary Van Slyke, a well-known local musician who is planning to give several free concerts for children and families in the coming months. I've known Gary for five or six years, and I've had the opportunity to jam with him a few times at the Gloversville Farmers Market. He's a good guy, and like me, he recognizes the value of social music — live music that is intended to be heard up-close in the public square. That's a feather in his cap (pardon the pun; see the video below).
Here's the text of the item from the print edition:
GLOVERSVILLE — Local musician Gary Van Slyke has announced he is scheduled to perform a number of free concerts for children throughout the area.
Here's Gary playing "Yankee Doodle," one of the tunes that will be featured in his Aug. 8 penny whistle workshop in Lake Pleasant:

Van Slyke says Sadie is a working dog — a "professional greeter" who comes with him to all his concerts and has made friends from Speculator to Sprakers. (Photo by Bill Ackerbauer/The Leader-Herald)
