I’m very happy to be returning to this community for their annual concert memorializing former Port Washington resident (and folk music icon) Jean Ritchie.
In 2015 The Canal Street String Band was the featured act, and we had a ball. This time around, it will be a solo program of traditional songs and tunes with New York State roots – canal songs, maritime music, Adirondack ballads, Catskills dance tunes, and even some rare fiddle music from Long Island.
This is the music of real-life “Yorkers” from the past – important pieces of our heritage – collected through considerable research, and interpreted for all to enjoy.
Come celebrate Jean’s legacy at this wonderful free event.
