A place to Go for Music! Rock, Folk and More: Music Fills Orange County This Fall

September 17, 2021 at 10:32 am

ORANGE COUNTY, N.Y. (September 16, 2021) – Orange County is the place to be for music this fall, from platinum-selling singer LeAnn Rimes, folk icon Suzanne Vega and true rockers The Spin Doctors to local favorites such as Turnpike Joe and the Traffic Jam.

The acts offer it all, from the classic to the innovative. For something different, Daisy Jopling’s Who’s Who transforms the music of The Who with original violin arrangements. Search the county’s venues for folk, blues, soul and so much more.

“Come to Orange County to rock, relax, sing along or dance – or do it all,” said Orange County Tourism Director Amanda Dana. “With so many bands, musicians and singers, both home-grown and visiting from afar, there’s more than something for everyone – and offered in some very cool places.”

The following are the venues and a sampling of the music they’re offering. Please be sure to check with a venue before going for any COVID-related requests and restrictions. Have fun – and stay safe!


Cornwall-on-Hudson Bandstand Concerts continue Tuesday evenings throughout September. Acts include the acoustic rock of duo Evan Teatum & Alan Battiato and the blues, soul and jazz of the Jeremy Baum Trio.
