The Kody Norris Show

6/4 Sunday, 4pm

Outdoor concert

Deeply rooted in North American folk music, Norris has crafted a performance that harkens back and tips a hat to the traditions created by Bill Monroe, Jimmy Martin’s showmanship, the Stanley Brothers’ harmonies, performances of the Grand Ole Opry and a bit of Vaudeville. Top notch picking is center stage, but humor and visual flash are part of the entertaining package. Always clad in colorful, tailored suits adorned with rhinestones, ties, classic hats and ornate boots, the band earns its moniker as a“show”. The brand is traditional, clean cut, acoustic and always entertaining. The Kody Norris Show was honored with seven SPBGMA nominations in 2018 and four nominations in 2022. In addition to winning Fiddler performer of the year, The Kody Norris Show was also named the 2022 Entertainer of the Year!

We are serving barbecue and drinks starting at 3pm!

Happy Sad Music — Emerging Voices

Pride Fest

6/18 Sunday, 4pm


Come celebrate the talents of local LGBTQIA+ artists here at WKC!

We have three indie music performances lined up featuring Awksymoron, Chris Riffle, and Moppy.

Food and drinks available starting at 3pm!


Over a period of nearly 10 years, Brooklyn native and musical polymath Athena Matsil has maintained a presence as Awksymoron across New York City’s DIY scene. With a steady flow of new music that has grown as Matsil has, the indie band presently features Jane Lai on keys, D.j. O’Loane on guitar, Phil Joy on drums, and Sam Zagnit/Griffin Jennings on bass. Matsil handles everything else: she sings with gorgeously rich tone and unparalleled range, can whistle better than anyone in New York DIY, plays violin, and writes guitar parts that are as wistful as they are vibrant. Together, the quintet plays songs written in earnest about the stuff of life. Awksymoron is not tethered to a single genre, with moments that evoke sounds of jazz, math rock, latin music and early rock. For fans of the Beach Boys, the Sea and Cake, Helado Negro, and Rebecca Sugar.

Chris Riffle's brand of heartfelt folk is a product—and a tale—of two coasts. There’s no mistaking the pastoral, spacious sound of his roots—the picturesque coastal towns of Washington state, where while still in college Riffle began making waves on local radio stations, and landed support gigs for such indie mainstays as Death Cab for Cutie. And yet it’s the other side of the country, on New York’s Lower East Side, where Chris has found a home with residencies at venues like the venerable Living Room and Rockwood Music Hall. Chris' albums have been in rotation at over 150 radio stations & featured on Sirius XM.

Since the release of his last album, Out of Town, Chris has shared the stage with Patti Smith, Blood Orange, Joan As Police Woman; embarked on a national tour supporting Heather Nova; and toured Germany & Belgium. Chris is currently finishing up a new full-length album he recorded with his longtime friend and producer Jimi Zhivago...

Moppy is a non-binary musician and Oneonta local who has been performing for over 10 years and writing their own songs since they were a young teenager. In the late 2010s, they were a part of the NYC anti-folk movement with their band, Sourdoe. Inspired by and following in the footsteps of The Moldy Peaches and Jeffrey Lewis- their music is funny, intense, as well as cheerfully heartwarming. Currently, as a solo artist, their music focuses on self development in a more serious, honest, and loving light. Moppy is also an alum of WKC's Shakespeare program and performed on our stage as a young teenager as part of our Opening Acts program.

Noura Mint Seymali

8/19 Saturday, 7pm

Indoor concert

Noura Mint Seymali is Mauritania's defining artist on the international stage. Drawing on the timeless repertoire of the Moorish griot, a hereditary class of musical poets / historians, her band conjures "a full blown sandstorm of hypnotic grooves, melding traditional Mauritanian instruments within an electrified psychedelic rock band.” Expanding a sound born of Arab and Sub-Saharan roots, Noura Mint Seymali bends the arc of Moorish musical tradition to fit our contemporary moment, as described by NPR, “the arrival of Mauritanian vocalist Noura Mint Seymali in front of Western audiences feels like the start of a new era. Recognized by the African Union at the first-ever AFRIMA awards, Noura Mint Seymali was named "Best Female Artist from North Africa."
