City Island, New York
Hudson Valley Sally Performs
249 City Island Ave., City Island, New York
This is folk music, gosh darn it, in every sense of the term. Songs about politics, social injustice, societal wrongs (and rights) and songs of war and peace, this four member band serves up originals and familiar folk songs with tight harmonies and accompaniment on guitar, banjo, bodhran (Irish drum) and mandolin. The members, all followers of the Pete Seeger "Ya gotta sing along" philosophy, are great friends and also members of the Walkabout Clearwater Chorus that combines music with activism. You will enjoy their musical variety, left-handed politics and unique approach to make old songs sound fresh and new again.
