Upbeat on the Roof

July 14 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

  • July 14: Carolyn Shaprio (Skidmore College Class of 2015): Shapiro’s sound is rooted in the old songs of Appalachia. Trained in the clawhammer style of banjo, she blends tradition with her own unique sultry flavor to create music that feels both familiar yet entirely new. Her songs are inspired by the world around her with a commanding voice that will stop you in your tracks. Carolyn was the winner of the 2022 Capital Region’s Folk Artist of the Year for the Capital Region Music Awards. She released her debut album Where I’m Supposed To Be in 2021.

The Frances Young Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery at Skidmore College announce the return of its popular summer concert series Upbeat on the Roof, each Thursday from July 7 through August 18.

This year marks Upbeat’s twenty-first season and it remains a premier summer destination for the best music created by the region’s musicians. Gospel, folk, rock, bluegrass, traditional Cuban music, world music, and jazz are all on tap for summer 2022.

New this year, the Tang offers an art-making station for kids at every concert! Children aged 5-12 are invited to arrive at 5:30 pm to get creative and make art with Tang Education Intern Paul Seggev ’23, the Carole Marchand ’57 Endowed Intern. Each week features a different art-making activity and is free, no registration required.

Performances begin at 6 pm and take place on the lawn outside the Tang. Visitors are invited to bring picnic blankets, camping chairs, and their own food and drink to make it a night. In the case of inclement weather, the art-making activities and concerts will be held inside the museum.

Admission is free and open to the public. For the latest guidelines on visiting and other information, please call the Visitors Services Desk at 518-580-8080 or visit https://tang.skidmore.edu/visit.
