Music on the Delaware and Elvanelle Music present the debut of the The Elvanelle Orchestra – a 9-piece show band in the Broadway, Vaudeville, and Jazz traditions. The concert takes place at 7:30 at the Walton Theatre with an open jam session at 6:30 in the theatre “parlor.”
With members from across the Hudson Valley, Catskills and NYC, Founder/Director Kimberly Hawkey and her band revive Catskill legends through folk music, jazz, comedy, rock and American song. The program will cover over a century of music from the Grand Hotel era to the post-Woodstock years, including music by regional composers. Kimberly’s genre-defying vocals meet a shapeshifting band complete with driving rhythm section, dynamic horns, and even traditional folk instruments.
Kimberly Hawkey has received several vocal awards including Gold Medal & Johnny Mercer Award for her multi-genre performances at the American Traditions Vocal Competition in Savannah, GA and the Jazz Forum Arts Vocal Award, Westchester County. She released a jazz vocal album in 2017 titled “Elvanelle & the Escape Act.”
Come join us for an evening of story, sound and song.
Tickets available below and at a variety of Walton, Delhi, and Oneonta locations.

Stephanie and Paolo have appeared all over the world and have produced 5 CDs.
The Louisiana supergroup combines Cajun, country, blues and zydeco into a powerful tonic of roots music that could only come from southwest Louisiana. This is a band that is unafraid of mixing up accordion, fiddles, saxophones and guitars. They play with a sense of empathy and depth that can only be fostered after many years of making music together.
Founding members of the Red Stick Ramblers and The Pine Leaf Boys, their sound will be reminiscent of those groups. They are a perfect example of how everything that comes from Acadiana is dripping with its own unique culture.
They’ve toured the US and the world and now they will be in Walton, NY. Don’t miss this tasty gumbo of a musical evening.
