Beautiful 100 Year Old Lady,...

And what a "lady" she is!...



Two weeks ago I traveled south west from the Adirondacks to Bainbridge, NY, to attend a concert by one of my favorite bluegrass bands, Remington Ryde.





The concert was held in the Bainbridge Town Hall which is 100 years old! The balcony is now fully restored...





Murals line the stairs,...



The community of Bainbridge and the volunteers who have given new life to this beautiful old building are most welcoming. It was a great evening Ryan, Billy, Wally and Danny! I'm sure I'll be going back again.



The next day's drive home included a bit of a side trip to see East Sidney Lake.





I'll be watching to see what the coming schedule is for concerts. It's a bit of a trip, 4 hours drive, but well worth it!

Sometimes the acoustics in those old buildings is better than in the new ones. Wonderful that it was restored.
