Based in Saratoga Springs, NY, Big Medicine has been exciting audiences from Albany to Lake George and beyond for a decade and a half. Performing for local venues, festivals, weddings, television – events of all kinds – public and private. The band is led by Jeff Walton on guitar, harmonica and vocals, and features the beautiful voice of Becky Walton. Tim Wechgelaer plays violin, mandolin and guitar; Rick Bolton is on lead guitar; and Pat Perkinson and Mike Lomaestro hold it down on bass and drums. Strong vocals and harmonies by all members are accompanied by supple R&B and folk-rock grooves with rich acoustic-based textures. A healthy dose of originals, seductive renditions of songs by others, and an unbridled creative energy… great reasons to check out Big Medicine.

Lake George This Week, Aug 5 – Aug 12, 2018TWO WARS. FIVE BATTLES. ONE FORT! Well worth the 45 minute drive!  The heroic corn maze opens for the season on Saturday Aug 10th – kids love it!  Every year at Fort Ticonderoga is a new story! Relive the defining moments in America’s history when nations fought to control a continent. Located within the shadow of the Adirondack Mountains and overlooking Vermont’s picturesque Green Mountains, Fort Ticonderoga guards the historic portage between Lake Champlain and Lake George. The French and their native allies failed to conquer this region during the French & Indian War. And a generation later, the British failed during the Revolutionary War. In the end, Americans controlled Lake Champlain, and therefore controlled the continent. Each day in July and August, the Fife and Drum Corps play songs containing important information, known as “duty tunes.” From reveille in the morning to tattoo at night, or sounding of the alarm and calling to arms, the Fifes and Drums regulate days at the fort today.  Also – don’t miss the Kings Garden tour and the Corn Maze – open now through the Fall season!

Revolution Rail – Rail Bike Tours

What is Railbiking? Railbiking with Revolution Rail Co. is a fun excursion activity that allows riders to ride the railroad tracks under their own power and explore a section of the Adirondacks that has never seen passenger traffic. Once railbikers check in at the historic North Creek Railroad Station, they’ll take a short shuttle ride 5 miles north of town to the tour launch point. After a short safety briefing, the tour guides will lead the railbikers further north on a 6 mile round trip cruise.
