LAKE PLACID, New York ??” Roy Hurd’s music is a breath of fresh mountain air. On Saturday, July 2nd at 8:00 PM Hurd will perform songs new and old in the High Peaks Information Center, located at the end of Adirondack Loj Road. Hurd’s listeners leave with the feeling they have just experienced an evening in the mountains listening to a real backwoods, but well-traveled story-telling songman. Don’t miss this special opportunity to hear this world class performer.

Roy Hurd is a dynamic performer and a world class singer/songwriter. In the years he has been performing, Roy has played his brand of mountain music for enthusiastic audiences nationally and has developed a following unparalleled in the Adirondack Mountains. Roy’s song Adirondack Blue has become a modern-day Adirondack anthem, and his recordings are regional best sellers. Roy’s newest CD, Lady of the Lake, his seventh CD, shines bright with his soul and craft.

Hurd’s program is part of the ADK’s Saturday Evening Lecture Series, funded with support from Stewart’s Shops. The Saturday Evening Lecture Series offers presentations on natural history, backcountry recreation, and Adirondack history, art, and music. All ADK lectures are free and open to the public.
