TUPPER LAKE - The Tupper Lake Chamber of Commerce and The Wild Center present Roy Hurd in concert Friday at the nature museum.
"Roy Hurd is the best known singer and songwriter in the Adirondacks," Adirondack Life magazine has written. "His appeal lies as much in his storytelling as it does his smooth vocal delivery and clear guitar work. The force of his belief is in the gentleness of his delivery."
Hurd's song "Adirondack Blue" became a Adirondack anthem, and his recordings have long been regional best-sellers. He recently released his 14th CD, "Wayward Son."

From 1990 to 2001, Roy held a staff songwriting position in Nashville, writing for two of the largest publishing companies in the world: Sony Music Publishing and Warner/Chappell Music. Roy has had songs recorded by Paul Brandt, on his gold Warner/Reprise Records release "Calm Before the Storm," as well as by David Kersh, Sonya Isaacs, The Oak Ridge Boys, Duane Steele and the Gibson Brothers; plus Jo Dee Messina recorded Hurd's "Nothing I Can Do" on her platinum Curb Records release, "Burn."
