Celebrate fall, carve a pumpkin and enjoy the music of Allen Hopkins from 10 a.m. to noon at Perry’s final Summer Saturdays Arts Series of the season at the Farmers’ Market.

The market, located on the Perry Festival Plaza on Main Street, is open from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Sept. 30. This free performance is part of the Summer Saturdays Arts Series, held on the Perry Festival Plaza in downtown Perry.

Hopkins’ musical selections range from American traditional to contemporary, with some Celtic reels, a bit of Klezmer music, and some bluegrass thrown in for good measure. His music is known throughout Western New York and has performed at the New England Folk Festival, the Pinewoods Folk Music Club in New York City. Additionally, he teaches workshops at Hochstein School of Music & Dance in Rochester.

At 10:30 a.m. get in the spirit of the season by carving a pumpkin. Purchase a pumpkin and the market will supply the markers, patterns and safety knives needed to make a vegetable masterpiece.

The Summer Saturdays Arts Series was made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature; administered in Wyoming County by the Arts Council for Wyoming County. We are also thankful to Friends of the Summer Saturdays Arts Series and for the generous donation of time from Arts Series demonstrators.

Press release, photo from CJ Country's website.

CJ Country (WCJW) Radio morning show host Jimi Jamm has a new side-kick on the CJ Country Morning Show. Warsaw resident Meghan Lawton will be sitting alongside Jamm from 6 to 9 a.m. weekdays.

A native of Adams Center, Lawton has served the past five years as the vice president of Tourism for the Wyoming County Chamber & Tourism in Warsaw. Currently, she is the marketing and communications director for Campground Owners of New York (CONY) where she markets the entire state of New York to tourists, specifically to those camping or RVing. In addition to her duties with CONY, she will spend her first hours of the day hosting the radio show with Jamm.

"I've always enjoyed the times I've been able to come on CJ and talk about all the events happening in Wyoming County in my past role as VP of Tourism," Lawton said. "When (station owner) Lloyd (Lane) and Jimi suggested coming on the morning show full time it seemed like a natural progression and I jumped at the chance. I'm looking forward to working with the entire CJ team and all of CJ Country."

"Meghan has raw talent for radio despite her limited background in it. She's brings energy and fun to the studio and we enjoy working together,” Jamm said. “Together, we're going to make our mission on CJ Country every morning to serve the community and create an entertaining show.”

Lawton lives in Warsaw with her husband, Tim, a social media marketing manager at Genesee Community College.

CJ Country is heard in the Warsaw area best at 103.7 FM but can also be heard on four other FM frequencies, a station at 1140 am that can be heard in 13 Western NY counties, plus online at wcjw.com and via the CJ Country or TuneIn smartphone apps.

Singer-songwriter Natalia Zukerman returned to Silver Lake on the night (Friday) of the only blue moon since 2012. Zukerman grew up in New York City, studied art at Oberlin College, worked in mural arts in San Francisco, began her songwriting career in Boston, and now resides, writes, plays and paints in Brooklyn. The daughter of classical musicians Eugenia and Pinchas Zukerman, she found her sound in other strings – those on slide guitar, lap steel and dobro. She found kinship in the earthiness and honesty of folk, bluegrass, jazz and blues music.

Zukerman’s first concert in this part of the state was at the Silver Lake Institute and called the Once in a Blue Moon concert. The Institute had teased her about returning every time there was a blue moon – and she took them up on it, playing at Epworth Hall in front of a crowd of approximately 125 people. This year’s concert was called Twice in a Blue Moon.

The storefront only shows a portion of the story. Instruments, e-cigarettes and music gear adorn the shop. A tall man with an easy smile stands behind the counter. As a child, he was influenced by the band Kiss.

JAMS Music and Attica Vapor’s owner Bob Caplick does more than just run the Main Street shop. For the fourth year, JAMS has sponsored a local music venue to benefit charitable organizations throughout the county. This year, the JAMS Fest was also a celebratory occasion. It marks the 10 year anniversary of Caplick’s ownership.

“It’s a celebration, but we are also trying to give back to the community,” Caplick said. “It’s rare for a music shop to remain open nowadays. People just don’t pick it up like they use to.”

While foot traffic in the shop is oftentimes low, JAMS also offers lessons, rents their PA system for Attica Winterfest as well as other local events, and offers concert venues to benefit local charities. Well over 100 people attended this year's 10 Years of Jams at the QWL in Attica. The proceeds benefit the Veterans One Stop of WNY and the Semper Fi Fund.
