Mountain Winery, the festive and picturesque outdoor concert venue in Saratoga, just announced the lineup for its 62nd concert season, following a year without concerts.
The lineup at Mountain Winery often skews older with the crowd it's meant to attract, and for 2021 that is no different — with nostalgia acts and aging rockers outnumbering newer names. Still, it's an eclectic mix of shows with several big names, including Steve Martin and Martin Short — with the comedians doing a show called "The Funniest Show in Town at the Moment," so this isn't Martin's bluegrass and banjo act. Also coming in July are The Indigo Girls, Los Lobos, Roger Daltrey, and Billy Idol. And coming in September we have Ziggy Marley, Rufus Wainwright with Aimee Mann, Rodrigo y Gabriela, and Boyz II Men.
There are also several nostalgia tours making stops at Mountain Winery, including "70s Soul Jam" on July 29, with the Stylistics, the Delfonics, and Harold Melvin's Blue Notes; and "Lost 80s Live" with Flock of Seagulls, Thomas Dolby, Stacy Q, and others. And there's a possibly tragic 90s show called the "Party Mix Tour" with Vanilla Ice, All 4 One, and Color Me Badd.
