We traveled out to Vernon CT to play a show to benefit Christmas in April, a Habitat for Humanity-like organization
which helps elderly and underpriviledged people to fic up their homes. The show at Charlies in Vernon had a great turnout.
Then we headed down to the Clearwater Festival in Croton-On-Hudson, NY.
The Clearwater was great on Saturday. We played twice under beautiful sunshine. We played a workshop with Peggy
Seeger, Pete's sister, called "No strings attached" so we sang a ccapella and with the drum. We got to see the "blessing of the river"
with a big fish with some very suspicious legs, and big puppets. We also saw the Arm of the Sea Theatre, detailing the history
of water use as New York City grew.
Sadly, on Sunday the festival was rained out, with only a few people standing in the rain to hear some wonderful music.
These big outdoor festivals are obviously greatly affected by weather.
