A lecture by Linda Russell
The Hudson River has been the backdrop for a wealth of human history: In the 17th and 18th centuries, pirates hid in the coves and soldiers built forts on its banks. In the mid- 19th century, it was inspiration for artists, poets and inventors. In the 20th century, it was a neglected, dirty stream transformed by Pete Seeger and others into an environmental success story. This program traces life along the Hudson as seen in folk ballads, Erie Canal ditties and dance tunes accompanied by guitar, pennywhistle and hammered and mountain dulcimers.
This program, which is free and open to the public, is made possible through the support of the New York Council for the Humanities’ Speakers in the Humanities program.
