Preview: 10th "Rock for the River" concert in Clayton

A second Rock for the River concert will be held this Sunday night in Clayton featuring Jay Nash and friends. A concert on the St. Lawrence River earlier this summer sold out within days, so Nash agreed to headline this special Labor Day weekend concert. Each year, Nash brings some of the best original song writers and musicians from across the country to the Clayton Opera House for an evening of live music in support of Save The River.

Jay Nash grew up in Syracuse and spent most summers playing guitar in the Thousand Islands, which he still considers home.
