Swing by the Erie Canal Museum in downtown Syracuse and enjoy live music on unique, hand-made instruments by the very talented Zeke Leonard during Week 7 of our 2019 HISTORY HAPPY HOUR series! All events happen rain or shine on select Wednesdays from 4:30 p.m.- 7:00 p.m. in either the outdoor Locktender’s Garden or the Museum’s second floor stage. The unique Weighlock Building, part of the Museum, is located at 318 Erie Boulevard East.
We’ll have a cash bar and lots of family-friendly activities, and some History Happy Hour events feature a food truck. The music begins at 5:00 p.m. and goes until 7:00 p.m. Beverages are available from 4:30 p.m.-7:00 p.m. Starting at 5:00 p.m., free parking is available in the lot across from the Museum under routes 81 and 690.
Zeke Leonard is an assistant professor in the School of Design at Syracuse University’s College of Visual and Performing Arts. His Salt City Found-Object Instrument Works project mobilizes community-based sustainability efforts through interactive musical objects and installations. This project has run the gamut from client-based instrument building to playing a cigar-box guitar on stage at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
