Sonny Landreth is a slide guitar legend, “probably the most underestimated musician on the planet, and also probably one of the most advanced.” (We didn’t say that; Eric Clapton did!).
Nora Jane Struthers has written “some of the most quietly powerful narratives within the new wave of Americana artists,” says Ann Powers of NPR Music. In one moment, she joyfully leads the audience in a dance party … in the next, she lays her soul bare for the world to hear.
September 14, 2021 Cooperstown Concert Series announces their 52nd Season with two November concerts confirmed at the Otesaga Resort Hotel Ballroom: Roanoke, November 6 at 8pm and The Brit Pack, November 27 at 7:30pm. Keep an eye out for additional details of our full season – coming soon!
After years spent rising through the ranks of the independent music scene, Roanoke has grown into a seasoned, road-tested rock outfit, retaining an affinity for storytelling and rich vocal harmony that has won over audiences time and again. A 5 piece band fronted by Taylor Dupuis and Joey Beesley, Roanoke’s robust touring schedule has sharpened the skills with which this quintet crafts their songs, a sound at once timeless and youthful, seamlessly blending a 70’s aesthetic with modern sensibility and mysticism.
The most authentic British Invasion experience this side of the Atlantic!
Formed in 2011 by British session musicians based in NYC, The Brit Pack take their audience on a
journey through a dynamic blend of British classics known and loved by all, including The Beatles,
Rolling Stones, Queen, David Bowie, Elton John, The Who, Oasis, Radiohead, The Police, Amy
Winehouse and many more.

Most performances in the 2020-21 concert season were canceled due to COVID-19.
However, as restrictions loosened up in the late spring of 2021 we were able to present one show. On May 22, 2021 The Oshima Brothers played to a COVID restricted full house of 140 guests! Great time had by all, so good to hear live music again!
August 27, 2020
Cooperstown Concert Series had four concerts planned, on our way to a full six season season in 2020-21. Then COVID happened.
As of today, our 2020-21 season is cancelled. We do hope that we can begin planning 2021-22, when that becomes viable for our audience, artists and volunteers.
March 3, 2020
Due to COVID-19 and the increasing amount of precautionary cancellations happening in our area, Concert Series is cancelling the March 21 Black Feathers show.
Not the way we intended to end our 50th season, but we want our audience, and our artists, to be safe for year 51.
All individual ticket purchases will be refunded in the coming days.
The John Jorgenson Quintet played before an audience that seemed to be on its feet from the first notes.
It was a triumphant return for the Grammy-winning guitarist, who first appeared for Concert Series 10 years ago.

As they did almost 12 years ago (to the day!), the Alexis P Suter Band played to a packed house at the Otesaga Hotel. Another amazing show, powerful, emotional, aggressive and fun!
