The Norwood Village Green Concert Series is pleased to announce its 49th annual season of “impacting our home communities via inspiring and spirit-uplifting public outdoor performances”. The 2022 season will host 23 musical groups across 19 concerts, all hosted at the Liotta Bandshell on the Village Green.

The theme of the 2022 Series will be “From There to Here”, showcasing beloved local artists alongside talents from across North America and Canada. This season will also add four artists to the list of Grammy award-winning performers to grace the Liotta Bandshell (Alex Cuba, Tom Paxton, Doug Henry, and Jon Vezner), bringing the total to 23 award recipients.

All concerts begin at 7pm unless otherwise noted. Concerts are free to attend, but there is a “pass the bucket” with proceeds going towards the cost of maintaining the series. Below is the full schedule for the 2022 season:

The Norwood Village Green Concert Series is supported by local public funds from the Town of Potsdam and the Village of Norwood. Additionally, the series has received NY State and federal funding from the American Rescue Plan Act, the New York State Council of the Arts, and NYSCA’s ReStart NY program, as well as the contributions of foundations, businesses, generous concertgoers and private donors.

This year’s theme of “From There to Here”, while bringing a wide variety of high caliber acts to the North Country, also brings higher lodging costs to the series. “Pass the bucket” donations will aid in offsetting these costs, in addition to helping the series towards its goal of installing a handicap-accessible ramp entrance to the Liotta Bandshell. The series has committed $20,000 to this project, much of which will be derived from concertgoers’ donations.

The series continues to solicit donations by check. Such donations can be mailed to:
