TUXEDO Musical headliners and local musicians are joining together for a full day of music to benefit Suzy Allman's MyHarriman on Saturday, Sept. 12, from 1 to 7 p.m. at Power House Park in Tuxedo.

Allman is the energy behind MyHarriman, a site devoted to the vast resources and adventure opportunities provided by New York State's second largest park. The Tuxedo Chamber of Commerce and MyHarriman.com have joined together to re-introduce residents and fellow adventurers to the possibilities that the surrounding parks of Harriman and Sterling Forest hold for the town.

The merging of trail culture with the local community and economy is the prime motive for Allman's vision.

Currently the shuttle busses that take hikers from the Tuxedo train station, now called "Tuxedo Base Camp," to the most popular trail heads in the area are solely financed by Allman with no other monetary support. The Tuxedo Chamber of Commerce along with the Related Co., which is currently in the first steps of construction of a new housing development in Tuxedo, are also actively working with Allman to assist her with her project.

Tuxedo Town Councilman David McMillen has worked with both the Chamber and Related to put together this benefit concert in order to assist Myharriman.com. Artists include Patrick Stanfield Jones, Charlie Shew and Robbie Dupree, as well as many local artists.

Anyone wishing to support local hiking trails and MyHarriman are invited to attend a enjoy a full day of music, food and drink. Admission is 5.

In case of rain, the event will be moved to Sunday, Sept. 13.
