The Pines Inn Songs at Mirror Lake Music Series presented by Adirondack “By Owner” concluded its eighth annual season with its final performance on Aug. 13 with Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds.
The seven weekly performances, which ran from July 2 through Aug. 13, featured local, regional and national acts in the scenic and historic setting of Mid’s Park on Main Street in Lake Placid.
The music series mission is to provide free concerts that introduce residents and visitors to a diverse range of musical genres and to provide exposure and experience to emerging artists in a scenic and relaxing setting. This year’s series was highly successful, boasting both record attendance and stellar performances by local, regional and national artists.
The 2013 lineup included: Jazz Night with Miranda Di Perno, World Rock Night with Rusted Root Americana Night with Amy Helm, American Rock Night with Lukas Nelson & P.O.T.R, Local Jam Night with Lucid, Reggae Night with Morning Sun & The Essentials, and Funk & Soul Night with Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds.
