Hudson.Water.Music. is a free summer-time concert series co-sponsored by the City of Hudson and Hudson’s own fab music store, Musica. The concerts take place from 6-9pm on Wednesdays at the Henry Hudson Riverfront Park.
In addition to the great music with a decidedly international flavor, each evening will feature roving circus unicylers, jugglers, magicians, comedians and clowns from Bindlestiff Family Cirkus. In addition, a great choice of fine summer victuals will be available at the shows.
The series kicks off this evening with Sweet Soubrette, a NYC-based indie rock band led by singer-songwriter Ellis Baker, featuring ukulele, violin and marimba. The band is touring in support of their latest album, “Days and Nights.” Sharing the stage will be the Edna Project – the duo of Liz Queler and Seth Farber performing a song-cycle set to the poetry of Edna St. Vincent Millay.
Here’s the line-up for the summer of 2011:
Today (July 20): Sweet Soubrette. With the Edna Project.
July 27: Hellvar. With the Newborn Trio.
August 3: Mother Fletcher. With Bongo Roots.
August 10: Taina Asili y La Banda Rebelde. With Yukari Roja.
August 17: Arborea. With Szelrozsa.
