Fran Yardley lives in one of the oldest settlements in the Adirondacks, Bartlett Carry, an historic thoroughfare for canoers traveling between Upper and Middle Saranac Lake. Surrounded by water, she is drawn to the lakes, an explorer at heart, a storyteller in name. This is one of her stories.
Nestled on the eastern slopes of the Adirondack Mountains near the coast of Lake Champlian is an independent, cooperatively produced two-day music event curated based on quality, diversity and spirit with an eye for bands on the rise.
Among the wild forests and towering mountains of the Adirondacks, music becomes the soundtrack to summer, a melody that flows through lazy afternoons on a dock, soars to the summit of the High Peaks, and thrills with the promise of twilight in a meadow surrounded by fireflies.
