Emmanuel Friedens Welcomes Folk Singer Don Berggren

The Emmanuel Friedens Church Concert Series continues on Sunday, February 4, at 3 pm with a concert by the noted Adirondack folk singer Dan Berggren. Mountain Songs and Stories, a musical event that will have you exploring the many dimensions of home, hard working folks, taking care of our planet and each other.This tradition-based songsmith writes with honesty, humor and a strong sense of place.

 "Dan is a throwback to the old role of the folk singer  . . . he's articulating things that need to be said right now," writes best-selling author and environmentalist Bill McKibben.  While Dan’s roots are firmly in the Adirondacks where he was raised, his music has branched out across many borders. For over 40 years, the award-winning educator and musician has entertained audiences in many venues throughout New York State, from Kentucky to Michigan, overseas in Europe, the British Isles, and Central Africa. His original music has been featured nationally on public radio and television, earning praise from all over.

Very engaging performances-highly recommended!

The concert is free-we hope you can attend and bring your friends.
