During the long summer days, locals and visitors alike flock to bars, restaurants, and concert venues to enjoy an eclectic array of musical offerings that includes rock, bluegrass, blues, and concerto. The musicians are as diverse as the music they play, and it's not uncommon to see a local, national, and international act in the same weekend in Lake Placid.
