The Yates Concert Series presents Rebecca Colleen and the Chore Lads at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday July 11. The concert will take place on the Yates County Courthouse lawn at Main and Court Streets, Penn Yan. The co-sponsors of this concert are David and Barbara Allardice.

A native of the Finger Lakes, Rebecca Colleen has performed at this concert series in the past. Influenced by gospel, bluegrass,t and country, “Rebecca has a beautiful voice and an intuitive gift for interpretation, along with a kindred heart that permeates all her songs.” (Claire Lynch)

In case of inclement weather, the concert will be held inside the neighboring Baptist Church. PYTCo, The Penn Yan Theater Company, will provide refreshments for sale at the concert during intermission.
