Clearwater Festival Returns (Photos)

Clearwater’s Great Hudson River Revival, the longstanding annual music and environmental festival that went on hiatus in 2016 as the organization focused on the $850,000 restoration of its namesake sloop, returned to Croton Point Park on June 17 and 18.

The event, which was founded by Pete Seeger in the late 1960s as a fundraiser for the nonprofit, involves 1,000 volunteers. The headliners this year included Lake Street Dive, a reunion of Cry Cry Cry (Lucy Kaplansky, Richard Shindell and Dar Williams), Nick Lowe, Los Lobos, Arlo Guthrie, Joan Osborne, Josh Ritter, Tommy Emmanuel and Alejandro Escovedo.

One thought on “Clearwater Festival Returns (Photos)

  1. Due to terrible weather in the Atlantic Ocean (the sloop is a river vessel), the Clearwater was not able to make it all the way to D.C. to deliver the letters and signed petitions, etc. to Congress. However all the letters and petitions will be delivered nonetheless.
