I have always said that summers in New York are so memorable. I live for the warm, sunny days with the bluest skies and greenest grass during this time. In the morning, the birds are chirping and at night we hear the summer chorus of insects and tree frogs.

Along with mother nature in summer, we also have a lot of events taking place more than ever. For the most part, local villages and towns have been putting on live music shows featuring Hudson Valley musicians. It has been so nice to see communities come together for a night out enjoying each other’s company.

Check out these top 6 live music events taking place this month in the Hudson Valley.
