The Norwood Village Green Concert Series has spent the past four decades providing free music to the North Country community.
Norwood, which is approximately ten miles north of Potsdam, is truly Upstate and well beyond the reaches of Interstates 87 and 90. Nonetheless, the concert series organizers are quick to boast that since 1974, they have entertained a half a million music revelers with a collection of music talent that includes Grammy, Juno and Emmy award winders, as well as two National Medal of Arts recipients, and several international, national, regional and local artists.
Concerts are free of charge, but donations are encouraged by means of a “pass the bucket” approach.
Each concert listed below starts at 7 p.m.
