The music for our April First Friday event will be provided by Fiddlestyx, a nine-piece ensemble made up of members of the Skaneateles High School orchestra, led by Karen Veverka. The group specializes in string versions of music by rock bands such as Led Zepplin and the Rolling Stones. The students are currently raising money to finance their upcoming trip to Los Angeles, where they have been invited to compete in the Heritage Festival of Gold, during which they will get the opportunity to work with renowned guest conductors and perform in the prestigious Segerstrom Concert Hall.

The Skaneateles Artisans gallery offers off-street parking and accepts major credit cards. Visit their website at For more information, call 315-685-8580. Exhibit runs through April 30th.
