Here’s a concert featuring a treasure trove of music from Dave’s deep and continuing research into the musical culture surrounding the Erie Canal.

Songs, stories and dance pieces from the workers, captains, passengers and crews of “Clinton’s Ditch,” along with related material from the Great Lakes and the Hudson River.
