Springville Fiddle Fest Host Band THE MERCANTILE MUSICIANS

Mercantile Musicians

Our homegrown HOST BAND welcomes you to historic Springville, New York. In 2011 a few friends began “jamming” together each Tuesday at the newly opened Concord Mercantile, a re-creation of an 1890’s General Store/Museum run by the Concord Historical Society. They are often joined by other musicians from a 50 mile radius, numbering 25 or more musicians. They perform for free at the “Mercantile” on Tuesday and Thursday evenings each week. Since 2014, they have been invited to perform as part of the Thursday Concert-in-the-Park series and they will again be performing at the Erie County Fair.
