  Singer/songwriter Barry Oreck, based in Brooklyn and Indian Lake, returns with his stellar band to the Arts Center on August 13! The quartet – Oreck (guitar/vocals), Rima Fand (violin/vocals), Jesse Miller (guitar/vocals), Adam Armstrong (bass) -- bring beautiful harmonies and virtuosic playing to original tunes as well as traditional selections. Oreck’s thought-provoking, personal and topical songs are at once catchy and quirky, and touch on a wide range of folk styles, from blues to bluegrass.
  This concert serves as the CD Release Party That Never Was for We Fit Together (released in the midst of the pandemic and making it to #9 on the folk charts in May 2020) and a preview of an upcoming record featuring new songs written during the tumultuous last year and a half. The band is thrilled to celebrate their first concert back and to do it here in the North Country.
