In collaboration with Mill Street Loft Arts,Scenic Hudson will conclude the Rhythm on the Riverfront series with a "build a kite" activity. As families arrive to hear the performance on the waterfront, children will be encouraged to create kites that are inspired by the beauty of the birds of the Hudson River. Once the kites are completed, children will run and play with their charming works of art as they take flight while families enjoy the last performance of the series.
The Big Takeover is a high energy sextet, with a refreshingly upbeat, yet groove oriented, party making approach to interpreting the Jamaican tradition of rocksteady, ska and reggae music. Formed in the funky college town of New Paltz, NY in 2007 and named after bassist Rob Kissner and drummer Sam Tritto’s proclivity for commandeering the stereo at campus parties, this band of self-taught musicians has acquired a habit of making audiences look, listen and dance.
The Rivertown Kids is a community group of musically-minded young people, envisioned and supported by Pete Seeger and located in his home town in the Hudson River Valley. Our mission is to gather together young people (ages 9-14 years) who are willing to make a commitment to social and environmental justice by singing, songwriting, recording, and performing to 'get the word out' about living in a more responsible world. Rivertown Kids work hard. We give our time and energy to be part of the solution to building a better world...in our own unique way.
