Music in Mattydale
Not many people realize it, but in the first half of the 20th century Upstate New York was a hotbed of old-time tunes and country music. From the Catskills to the Adirondacks, we made mountain music as good as that heard in the hollers of West Virginia.
Now the CNY Bluegrass Association is meeting and making music monthly (September through May) at the Mattydale Veterans of Foreign Wars lodge at 2000 Le Moyne Ave., just west of the Hollywood Theater. The guitars and banjos ring out at 10 a.m. Sunday, March 11, followed by a brief meeting at 2 p.m. and then more jamming.
