A Central New Yorker and iconic 90s rock alternative music star will kick off the Chevorlet Music Series at the Great New York State Fair. Steven Page, former frontman of the Barenaked Ladies, will take the Chevy Court stage at 1 p.m. on Opening Day, Wednesday, August 24.
While Page still plays music from the Barenaked Ladies’ catalog, the award-winning musician, singer, and songwriter has been performing and releasing new, original music – solo, and with the Steven Page Trio – for the last decade. Page lives in Manlius, in Central New York, and the ties to New York State run deep. Page’s sixth solo album, “Excelsior” - which also happens to be the state’s motto – will be released this September.
A fierce advocate for mental health, Page has also been open about his own journey publicly. In April, 2020, Page released “Isolation,” a song about social distancing and anxiety.
When in-person performances paused during the pandemic, Page’s Live from Home virtual concerts became a familiar comfort for fans. Even now, almost every Saturday when he’s not on the road, Page joins a community of followers around the world at 5 p.m. EST via Zoom to play music.
All concerts in the Chevrolet Music Series are free with Fair admission. All concerts at the Fair are sponsored by Chevrolet.
