Clearwater Festival

We are hereby declaring this to be Festival Fever week here at Nippertown.com, and each day this week we’ll be giving you the details of an upcoming local festival of music, art, dance and/or literature. So stay tuned. (We jumped the gun a bit with the announcement of the complete line-up – with links to each of the musicians and photos by Andrzej Pilarczyk – for the Freihofer’s Jazz Festival at SPAC, which we posted yesterday. If you missed it, just go here.)

The initial line-up for the 2010 Clearwater Great Hudson River Revival is chockful of great performers – from Steve Earle to Railroad Earth, from the subdudes to Shawn Colvin, from Joan Osborne to Buckwheat Zydeco. And, it probably doesn’t come as too big a surprise, but the legendary Pete Seeger will also be singing on both days – Saturday and Sunday, June 19-20 – in Croton Point Park in Croton-On-Hudson.

In addition to all of the great music, the Clearwater fest also features superb storytellers and family-oriented entertainers, as well juried crafts, a Green Living Expo, a working riverfront and environmental education sites.
