Every year after the Italian Heritage Festival many people would ask; “Couldn’t the Italian Festival be a little bit, well you know, a little bit more Italian?” Sure there’s always been great performers such as one of my favorites, Lance Diamond with the Hernandez Brothers, but lets face it, where’s the Braciole?
Well guess what? Things are going to be different this year; things are going to be better! The sage elders of the festival discussed it and came to this very wise decision; “Hey, you know what, let’s give the people what they want!” Wow, now that’s Italian.
(Pictured: Western New York favorites, virtuosos Steve Balesteri and Ashlee Amoia, prepare some Italian Classics for this Thursday at the Italian Heritage Festival. The Festival will begin at 4:45 pm with the singing of the National Anthems of the United States and Italy; and immediately followed by the classic duo taking to the festival stage.)
