Let’s face it; with summer here, we are living for the weekends more than ever. Trying to plan any escape we can from the city and taking a half day Friday to boot. If we fail, there is always day drinking and getting loose with the crazies which can absolutely be a weekend ‘away’.
Well, what if we told you that there’s a way to get ‘away’ from the city without actually getting away. No, this is not us trying to convince you that Jones Beach is the Hamptons. We’re talking about an event! We’re talking about David Crosby, Los Lobos, Neko Case & More at The Clearwater Festival!
Clearwater’s Great Hudson River Revival (aka “the Clearwater Festival” or “Revival”) features seven sustainability powered stages with diverse music, dance, storytelling and family-oriented programming as well as a juried Handcrafters’ Village, the Green Living Expo, the Working Waterfront with small boat exhibits and rides, the Artisanal Food & Farm Market, environmental education displays and exhibits, and the Circle of Song where audience participation is the focus. The best part about the event is that it’s a Metro-North ride away!
A slew of big-name musicians come together at the 2015 Clearwater Festival. Folk-rock legend David Crosby — founding member of The Byrds and Crosby, Stills & Nash — brings a little air of Woodstock to the party. The festival also features multiple Grammy-winning Latin rock legends Los Lobos. Folk rock feminist icon Ani DiFranco will hit the stage, as will Grammy nominated singer-songwriter Neko Case — renowned as much for her solo work as for her lead vocals with The New Pornographers. You’ll also see innovative banjo duo Béla Fleck and Abigail Washburn, country star Shelby Lynne, Motown legend Bettye LaVette, singer-songwriters Citizen Cope and Todd Snider, alternative rockers Guster and many more. There will also be river attractions, jugglers and acrobats, jam tents, family attractions and more at Croton Point Park on Saturday and Sunday, June 20 and 21.
