Seeger began hosting "folk picnics" in the 1960s to pay for building a boat that would travel on the Hudson to highlight environmental issues. Seeger and his wife, Toshi, who died last July, lived in nearby Beacon, in a home with a spectacular view of a bend in the river.

The informal fundraising concerts became the Clearwater Great Hudson River Revival in 1978. In recent years it has settled in a park jutting into the river in this community 35 miles north of New York City and has modernized beyond its folkie roots. With the strong lineup, Seeger remembrances and sunny skies, organizers were expecting their biggest crowd ever. - [Daily Freeman]

One of the most laid-back music festivals in the NY area, the environmentally themed Clearwater Festival happened over the weekend, the first since this death of founder Pete Seeger. The second day (Sunday, 6/22) featured music across seven stages, including Puss N Boots who pics are posted here. Sunday's lineup also included Lucinda Williams, Bettye LaVette, Arc Iris, Toshi and Bernice Reagan, Martin Sexton, Houndmouth, and more. Pictures from day 2 of Clearwater Fest are in this post.

Pictures from Clearwater day 1 are HERE. More of day 2 below....

No Josh Ritter?! He's always one of the highlights. He played 4 new songs too, which got me excited about the "testing new material" City Winery run coming up.

Interesting to just find out that Toshi Reagan is Pete Seeger's goddaughter, named after his wife Toshi. Learn something new every day.

What was the situation with bringing in beer or herb? Any hassles?

The trashy Houndmouth chick is most slammable.

Beer and wine were allowed in.

Kudos to LaPutt for taking photos of these people for us to ridicule. It's like throwing steak to hungry lions. I am one who loves some troll bait. I will have seconds.

Oh for fuck's sake Lucinda do something with all that, girl. You making Patti Smith look like Brooklyn Decker.

This whole festival looks like it stinks like Pete Seager's rotting ass crack.

'Love the chick smoking a cigarette next to the pool. No doubt she's smoking to keep from getting fat.

How many months is the guy sitting in the lawn chair pregnant?

Stand your ground wasn't practiced? I'm shocked.

I'm not shocked by the complete lack of black people and very little non-white ones in general.

Wait - one black person: a female performer.

Fuck Florida which can secede from the union and take Texas with it.

I'd love for that to happen cuz those two states are the only reason for living for the Republicans most Presidential elections.

Posted by D | June 24, 2014 2:52 PM

^D, can you read? This isn't in Florida.

This is about as exciting as an Outlook Public Folder.

I grow weary of this Fake D and his opinions.

Fake D is having serious mental issues today. Give him a break.

That's the real D. He's always been a gas bag moron.

3:14pm So what? Ĺooks like Florida with all the white and/or fat people. My comments about Florida still stand. 'Thought it was in Clearwater, FL, whatever.

4:00/4:25/5:01pm you need to get a fucking life with your real D/fake D shit.

If I'm a ¨gas bag moron¨ you're a nutrider of one making you even more pathetic.

Posted by D | June 24, 2014 5:09 PM

I am coming off like a ¨gas bag moron." I'm sorry everyone. You would never think you'd find out so much about yourself on a web page but it happens. I am a testament to that. Time to make some changes.

Posted by The Real Real D | June 24, 2014 5:26 PM

^ No-life obsessed moron. Get some new material.

Posted by D | June 24, 2014 5:40 PM

"If I'm a ¨gas bag moron¨ you're a nutrider of one making you even more pathetic."

^lol. Classic fuckin' D, man.

Honestly, I didn't read the article, I just saw the pics and the word ¨Clearwater" and thought it was in Florida since ya know, there is a Clearwater, FL. And again my comments about Florida still stand.

Posted by D | June 25, 2014 8:53 AM

¨Clearwater"
