CFCU Summer Concert Series Presents August First
June 27 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
August First is a New England based project creating their own unique take on stringed music through their originals and covers, while celebrating the many musical incarnations of Jerry Garcia.
The band is made up of frontwoman Nicole D’Amico’s powerful vocals and banjo, guitarist Rick Schiffman and outstanding multi-instrumentalist, Brian Young. This band describes their unique style they have coined as “Blues-Grassicana.”
August First makes its first impression with its eclectic instrumental lineup of banjolele, ukulele, banjo, guitar, mandolin, harmonica, and bass, however, the soulful vocal performance and delivery of August First is what truly leaves audiences wanting more.
All concerts in this series are free, all ages, and family friendly. Concerts take place on the Bernie Milton Pavilion on the Commons. In case of severe weather, shows may move inside to The Range.
Thank you to our 2019 series sponsors CFCU Community Credit Union, Seneca Beverage Corporation, Ithaca Marriott Downtown on the Commons, City Centre Apartments, Wagner Vineyards, Maguire Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Fiat of Ithaca, Cayuga Radio Group, and The Range.
The official afterparty will be held at Monks On The Commons from 8-10 pm.
