The cornerstone was laid on August 27, 1904. Albert Randolph Ross, an architect with the New York firm of McKim, Mead and White, designed this masterpiece of Beaux Arts style, which, since 1976, has been listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
This concert will take place in its temporary location at 34 West Fulton Street in Gloversville, NY.

Sherman’s Revival Series: Sawyer Fredericks

Sawyer Fredericks, the “musical pride” of Glen, New York, who won “The Voice” television singing competition in 2015 when he was 15 years old, will perform at Sherman’s Amusement Park on June 8.

In March, Fredericks, known for his original renditions of well-known folk songs as well as his own songwriting, released his third album, “Hide Your Ghost,” a mostly-analog recording made at Dreamland Recording Studios in Woodstock, New York.

Fredericks’s first-place “The Voice” prize was $100,000 and a recording contract.  Before that, however, he was known as a local musician, playing at local farmers’ markets, open mics, and iconic New York venues like Caffe Lena, the Towne Crier Cafe and The Bitter End.   On reality TV,  he quickly won over broad audiences with his genuine delivery and unique arrangements of classic songs. Fredericks then released his debut album, A Good Storm, with Republic Records, a blend of soulful folk, blues, and rock, entirely written or cowritten by Sawyer. His 2016 A Good Storm tour included 62 shows across the US.
