2017 Clearwater Festival

June 17th & 18th

Croton Point Park, Croton-on-the-Hudson, NY

The Clearwater Festival 2015

Celebrated singer-songwriters Lucy Kaplansky, Richard Shindell and Dar Williams will revive their celebrated folk-pop collaboration, Cry Cry Cry, on June 18th at the Clearwater Festival in Croton-on-Hudson, NY for their first performance in nineteen years. The band recorded their eponymous debut in 1998 for Razor & Tie Records followed by a sold-out nationwide tour including New York’s Town Hall.

Keeping Pete and Toshi’s legacy alive, it’s always been a goal for the Festival’s line-up to be diverse. This year, now more than ever, it’s even more important to come together and celebrate diversity!
Four of our favorite bands will return this year – Lake Street Dive, Los Lobos, Alejandro Escovedo and Toshi Reagon and BIGLovely!

They’ll be joined by acts performing at Clearwater for the first time including guitar virtuoso Tommy Emmanuel, modern day songster, minstrel and bluesman, Blind Boy Paxton and The Suitcase Junket, the throat-singing, slide guitar playing one-man-band.

Longtime Clearwater friends returning include Tom Paxton & The DuanJuans, Holly Near, Tom Chapin, Guy Davis, David Amram, Josh White Jr., The Kennedys, Martha Redbone Roots Project and The Vanaver Caravan.

As part of our mission to present artists from around the world, these acts will also be making their Clearwater debut – Ukrainian folk-fusion troupe Dakhabrakha; amazing salsa band Jimmy Bosch Y Su Sexteto del Otro Mundo; A-WA, three Israeli sisters who combine Yemenite folk singing with electronic dance music; and Plena Libre, the great Puerto Rican plena and bomba group.
