Did you see and hear Dave on CBS Sunday Morning’s special feature on the Erie Canal?
Or PBS’s “Erie: The Canal That Made America?”
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.
This interactive program entertains and enlightens, combining uncommon musical instruments from canal days with great songs, fascinating regional history, liberal doses of humor and audience participation for all ages.
Available with optional multimedia PowerPoint presentation.
