Free concerts Thursdays in August

The Rhythm on the Riverfront summertime concert series presents free concerts in Cold Spring’s Foundry Dock Park, taking place all four Thursdays in August from 6 to 8 p.m.

The first concert will take place Aug. 6 with the Matthew Munisteri Trio. Munisteri’s love of jazz, swing and Dixieland has led him to rediscover many of the all-but-forgotten musicians of the early 20th century.

Other concerts in the series will feature Matuto on Aug. 13, with their Appalachia-gone-Afro-Brazilian sound; Pre-War Ponies on Aug. 20, with their revival of music from the 1920s and ’30s; and the rock quartet Queen Esther and the Wisemens on Aug. 27.

Come early and walk through the newly enhanced West Point Foundry Preserve, just a short walk away. The concerts are presented by Beacon Music Factory in collaboration with Scenic Hudson. Concerts take place rain or shine.

For more information or to RSVP, contact Scenic Hudson Parks Event and Volunteer Coordinator Anthony Coneski at [email protected] or 845-473-4440, ext. 273.
