COMING SOON - Wayside Cider Hiking Club. Join us this spring for weekly outings to explore the trails of the Western Catskills. Some weeks we’ll hit the local Delaware County trails, some weeks we’ll venture a little farther afield, but we'll always end up back at the taproom. Stayed tuned for more information when the snow melts.
FIRST and THIRD THURSDAY of the MONTH
The Godforsaken String Band plays Old Time/Appalachian music in its most elemental forms... Playing songs that have echoed through American musical history: Soldiers Joy, Cripple Creek, Old Dan Tucker, Little Brown Jug. The Band plays a set starting at 7:30 and then WELCOMES local musicians to add folk and pop acoustic flavors to the mix and play till the house closes. The Godforsakens are fiddle, clawhammer banjo, guitar, mandolin and pure American singing. Their music is infectious and just makes you feel good. Dancing imminent and encouraged.

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED AND WILL BE RE SCHEDULED - WATCH THIS SPACE...
Jonathan Kane is a downtown NYC legend, as co-founder of the no-wave behemoth Swans, and the rhythmic thunder behind the massed-guitar armies of Rhys Chatham and the rock excursions of La Monte Young -- and as one of the hardest-hitting drummers on the planet. His critically acclaimed releases 'February', 'I Looked At The Sun' ‘The Little Drummer Boy’ and ‘Jet Ear Party’, power guitar-driven minimalism into the blues, and the blues into guitar-driven harmonic maximalism. Kane currently performs internationally with his group Jonathan Kane’s February, and with Dave Soldier in their duo project Soldier Kane.
A scoville is a unit of measure that gauges the scorch of a chili pepper. Now, with the arrival of Zonder Kennedy and the Scoville Junkies, the term also plays a role in establishing a new bar for incendiary modern blues — music that echoes the genre’s deep past, but reverberates into the future with daring arrangements, high energy and a keen, lean ’n’ dirty sound.
FRI 7/28 @8PM [MUSIC] GREEK JUDAS (at Wayside Tap Room)
Wayside and Bushel are psyched to present Greek Judas—Rebetika AF or as you’ve never heard it before.
** This show takes place at the Wayside Tap Room in Andes: 55 Redden Lane, Andes, NY
From the horses’ mouths:
‘Greek Judas plays rock versions of songs from the Greek Rebetika tradition. Rebetika is the Greek equivalent of early American blues. They are songs of the Greek underworld and of the refugees fleeing Turkey who filled the Athens slums in the 1920s. It’s the music of knife fights, hash dens, prison life & heartbreak. Why I Smoke Cocaine, I’m A Junkie, Two Mangas In Jail, The Smugglers… We play them loud, on guitars, bass & drums.’
Greek Judas is Quince Marcum, vocals, Wade Ripka, guitar and lap steel guitar, Adam Good, guitar, Nick Cudahy, bass, Chris Stromquist, drums (except they might have a different drummer for this event and also a back up Bollywood string section)
Rebetika meets metal in Greek Judas, “New York’s Best New Psychedelic Band.” It’s true: we’ve seen them. So should you.
Erik Longabardi from Ancestral Flora will talk about making ciders on Long Island and demonstrate the basics of making honey wines using native plants that highlight the unique biodiversity of Long Island. By foraging in historic parks, researching old estate grounds, coastal shorelines, looking for important fruit trees on Long Island, NY, Erik has uncovered a significant historical past that he is using to create a terroir based solely on specific Long Island sites. With wine being so prevalent on Long Island, Ancestral Flora intends to use Long Island as a platform for the cider it was once so famous for.
This talk will feature tastes of ciders and honey wines from specific sites attributed to the terroir of Long Island. $15 for talk and taste + learning the basics of natural wine making. CLICK HERE FOR TICKETS
