The Rosendale Recreation Center (another hopping venue in the little town that could) plays tribute to Pete Seeger with an afternoon of music to benefit the restoration of the Hudson River’s iconic sloop Clearwater on Sunday, January 24 from 2 to 6 p.m. Radio Woodstock eminence Jimmy Buff will emcee the event. The lineup of musical performers is well-curated with a local focus, including headliner Guy Davis, songwriter/poet Decora, the great singer/songwriter Kelleigh McKenzie, the close harmonies of Betty & the Baby Boomers, the irreverent and literate musical subversions of Mikhail Horowitz and Gilles Malkine and more.
The event will feature a silent auction, including a weeklong stay at an Italian villa, artwork and many other items and services. The event will include a potluck and the sharing of “Stone Soup”: a soup made on the spot with ingredients brought by participants. Concertgoers are encouraged to bring a dish to share and a vegetable for the soup.
Ticket prices range from $20 for children (12 and under), $30 or $50 for adults and $100, $250 or $500 for premium tickets. The event is presented by the Hudson River Sloop Clearwater organization. The Rosendale Recreation Center is located at 1055 Route 32 in Rosendale. For more information and a complete lineup, visit www.clearwater.org/petetribute or call (845) 265-8080, extension 7113.
