Sawyer Fredericks opens the season June 21.

The schedule for this summer's series of free concerts at Freedom Park in Scotia is out.

As usual, it's a big lineup with multiple concerts each week from late June through late August. And the lineup includes a bunch of different genres.

Freedom Park is on the Mohawk River, just over the Western Gateway Bridge from Schenectady, next to Jumpin' Jack's.
