The Eddies are a celebration of the Capital Region’s thriving and diverse music scene.

Over 100 luminaries drawn from the region’s talent pool—including club owners, sound technicians, educators, journalists, and performers—will judge music-related categories, granting Eddies to winners from a list of over 140 nominees (ranging from soloists and group members to teachers, engineers, deejays, photographers and others).

2020 Hall Of Fame Nominees Announced

A member of the Grand Ole Opry, a woman who founded an iconic American coffeehouse and two local connections to MTV are among the six 2020 inductees in the Capital Region Thomas Edison Music Hall of Fame. 

The Accents, Blotto, The Fidelitys, Hal Ketchum, Lena Spencer and John Sykes are to be inducted at the site of the Eddies Hall of Fame, Universal Preservation Hall in Saratoga Springs. 

This group will join the inaugural class from 2019 – Kevin McKrell and Ruth Pelham – in the Hall exhibition, which is being formally unveiled that evening. Local musician and comedian Erin Harkes is emcee. The induction ceremony includes a dinner and live music. 

This event is open to the public. Help us honor an amazing group of individuals from the Capital Region who have had a significant influence on the local music scene and beyond!
