Pete Seeger’s dream child, Hudson River Sloop Clearwater has been advocating for the Hudson River, as well as educating and celebrating from the Adirondacks to New York City for more than 50 years now. We have been active members
of that beloved community for more than thirty years now, and were happy to join in the June 20th, 2020 virtual version of Clearwater’s "Great Hudson River Revival” aka, the Clearwater Festival, on-line with a host of friends and colleagues.
Old Songsis our neighborhood folk festival, and this year is their 42nd anniversary. Altamont, NY, where the festival is held, is about a twenty-minute drive from our house through, the beautiful Helderbergs in the northern Catskills. We love the way Old Songs has always featured the best of the best, both traditional and truly “old” music as well as the best of the current creators of new songs, the best songwriters in the folk circuit. This year, because of the cancellations, we’re singing a few songs on-line for them.
Check out this tune and then check out the virtual Old Songs Festival on Ron Olesko’s Folk Music Notebook, the evenings of June 23-25, 2023. LISTEN HERE
Here are some videos we recently put together around the house here. Favorite songs and thoughts sent out into this crazy world.
“Cry Carolina”, in solidarity with current protests, yet another instance in the long history of atrocities. This also leads the viewer to the rest of our Kent State 50th Anniversary videos. LISTEN HERE
Join Terry & Greg from Brooky Hollow singing songs to celebrate the vernal equinox, the return of spring! After the long, unprecedented and difficult year so many of us have had, now we can look ahead to a new day, a new dawn.
“Songs that portray the impact of the Great Depression (1929-1941) on people in various walks of life throughout the United States. Terry & Greg cover a lot of musical ground including blues, country, unaccompanied, swing, jazz, and popular. These are a few of the stories of the people, the troubles they endured, and the hope that kept them going.
