Of Time and the River: Songs of the Historic Hudson
Wednesday, June 12 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM
The Hudson River has been the backdrop for a wealth of human history. In the 17th and 18th centuries, pirates hid in the coves and soldiers built forts on its banks. In the mid-19th century, it was inspiration for artists, poets and inventors. In the 20th century, it was a neglected, dirty stream transformed by Pete Seeger and others into an environmental success story. This program traces life along the Hudson as seen in folk ballads, Erie Canal ditties and dance tunes accompanied by guitar, pennywhistle and hammered and mountain dulcimers. For 30 years, Linda Russell has explored America's past through song. She served as 18th century balladeer at Federal Hall National Memorial in NYC. She has recorded eight albums of traditional and historical music, including: Stephen Foster Songs on Albany Records, The Good Old Colony Days on Prairie Smoke Records and Christmas Past, on Helicon Records. This program, which is free and open to the public, is made possible through the support of the New York Council for the Humanities’ Speakers in the Humanities program.
