The Downtown Barn in Liberty announced its 2017 season, which opens May 5 and closes out on Oct. 20. The season features many local acts, including Slam Allen, Breakfast for the Boys and Upstate Rubdown.
Liberty’s Downtown Barn, as with every season, kicks off on May 5 with New York Blues Hall of Famer Slam Allen, who also closes out the season on Oct. 20. The 2017 season features 26 affordable shows with most shows priced at $12 in advance and $15 at the door. This season features a number of local and national artists, including Gruppo Mondo, which features Peter Gabriel’s drummer Jerry Marrotta, on May 19 and Sept. 16, Gregg Allman’s music director Scott Sharrard on June 2 and Walter Parks, lead guitarist for Richie Havens, on July 1.
The Downtown Barn opened in the center of the village of Liberty, tucked away in the Catskills, in 2013 as a small event space with a capacity of 120 seats. The stage was built from hardwood tongue and groove boards reclaimed from one of the silos on Max Yasgur’s farm, the location of the original 1969 Woodstock Music and Arts Fair.
Season passes that get you access to all 26 shows are available for $235.
