|June 16, Saturday - June 17, Sunday||LIVE BROADCAST: Clearwater's Great Hudson River Revival (Clearwater Inc.)
11:00 AM at Croton-on-Hudson, NY
Will feature a number of superb storytellers and family-oriented entertainers as well as juried crafts,the Green Living Expo, the Working Waterfront with small boat exhibits and rides, environmental education displays and exhibits, and the Circle of Song where audience participation is the focus. Inspired by Pete Seeger's desire to clean up the river over forty years ago, the Great Hudson River Revival initially helped raise the funds to build the sloop Clearwater, which has since become a world-renowned floating classroom and a symbol of effective grassroots action. Today, Hudson River Sloop Clearwater is a non-profit organization that sails at the forefront of the nation's environmental challenges. The revenue raised by the Revival goes to support Clearwater's numerous educational programs and its work toward environmental and social justice-as well as keeping the Clearwater afloat. Entertainers include: Ani DiFranco, Martin Sexton, Béla Fleck, Dawes Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Arlo Guthrie & The Guthrie Family, Josh Ritter & The Royal City Band, Joan Osborne & The Holmes Brothers, Loudon Wainwright III, Toshi Reagon, Jill Sobule and scores of others.
