Saturday the Great Hudson River Revival occurred for the first time without Pete Seeger, the giant folk singer and activist who called Beacon home, and Toshi Seeger, his wife whose strong shoulder and loving arms gave support to all who craved peace. The festival started early, with thousands descending on the park by 11 a.m., and it didn't miss a beat.The 2014 Clearwater Festival went down in Croton Point Park this past weekend (6/21-22) with tons of folk musicians and multiple tributes to the festival's founder, the legendary Pete Seeger who passed away earlier this year, as well as his wife Toshi who passed in 2013. Day 1 included sets by Nicole Atkins, Rufus Wainwright, Richard Thompson, Spirit Family Reunion and more. Pictures of day 1 are in this post.
Luane Haggerty stood on stage with the Como Mamas. Draped in blue and green, Haggerty sang with the gospel vocalists, projecting her hands with deep heart and fluid grace. An American Sign Language interpreter who learned because her grandmother was deaf, the Newburgh native has been performing at the Revival for nearly two decades. It's one of the few festivals that utilizes regular ASL interpreting.
"I think it's a real statement, a commitment to the deaf community," Haggerty said. "Having the access is a statement to Pete and Toshi and inclusion." [Times Herald-Record]
