Tim & Chris on Berkeley Green

Join us in Berkeley Green Park 6-8pm to hear this incredible Saratoga Springs Folk duo.

Tim Wechgelaer, a White Plains native, and now a Saratoga Springs local, is a multi-instrumentalist whose musical career began in the early 70’s. He has played his acoustic guitar with the Irish-rock hybrid band of Big Medicine and fiddled with Jim Gaudet and His Railroad Boys. Some of the biggest influences on Tim are artists such as Johnny Cash and Bob Dylan.

Chris Carey, after playing the drums for most of his life, purchased his very first guitar in the summer of 2008. Chris was the drummer for the indie rock group Railbird. At that time Chris began to collaborate with other musicians in the Capital Region, and go out on his own.

Carey, a Ballston Spa native, began to write songs and recorded an album soon after his guitar purchase. His inspiration for songwriting was being around the lead singer for the Railbird’s, Sarah Pedinotti, who Chris felt is an incredible songwriter. Sarah had exposed Chris to other songwriters such as John Prine, Neil Young, Tom Waits, and Bob Dylan.
