The High Falls Business Association has once again teamed up with the Hochstein School of Music & Dance and WXXI to present Hochstein at High Falls, a noontime summer concert series. The series includes ten outdoor concerts Thursday afternoons at 12:10 pm during June, July and August. Weather permitting, they will be held in theGranite Mills Park near the Pont de Rennes Bridge and will feature a diverse mix of musical artists and instructors. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own seating and lunch, or pick up a great lunch at area restaurants (like La Luna and Fina's Cafe). Each performance runs approximately 50 minutes.

The Crooked North is a band inspired by the energy of progressive bluegrass, the gritty soul of Americana, and the Rust Belt ethos of their Western New York home. They hammer out originals and choice selections from the great American songbook in bars, living rooms, barns, and festival stages. Following paths through big cities, bands of all kinds, road gigs, odd jobs, and breaks both good and bad, nationally recognized songwriter Jon Itkin and award-winning instrumentalist Ben Proctor landed in Rochester around the same time. Circumstance had them throwing together a last-minute impromptu gig in January of 2014, with Jon on guitar and Ben on banjo and dobro. Rita Proctor joined on vocals and Jordan Kleiman on bass with almost no rehearsal. It was 3 degrees outside, the sound system didn't work, and they had no band name--but the sparse audience agreed: it was the beginning of something special.
