LIVE MUSIC from
‘The Wickers Creek Band’ 1.00pm – 3.00pm
The Wickers Creek Band performs an eclectic mix of traditional American music, primarily in the Bluegrass tradition. The four-person group sings in close, blended harmonies backed up by varying combinations of fiddle, banjo, mandolin, guitar and bass. The band’s repertoire includes classic and contemporary Bluegrass, country and Appalachian music, with a dollop of French Canadian, Celtic and New England dance tunes thrown in for good measure.
The group originally hails from the hills of lower Westchester County where Wickers Creek flows into the mighty Hudson River, but band members have recently been spotted migrating up the Hudson to Columbia County. Featured are lead singer Peter Paden on banjo and mandolin, Charlene Paden on fiddle, Rob Bradley on guitar, Andy Bing on mandolin and dobro, and Vivian Walsh on upright bass. The band has performed at the Lincoln Center Out-of-Doors Festival, the annual Willow Creek Bluegrass Festival in Montgomery NY, the Columbia Land Conservancy’s annual Shad Bake, Manhattan’s Parkside Lounge and Millerton’s Manna Dew Café, as well as many public and private events around the Hudson Valley and Long Island.
‘Hudson Crossing ‘ 3.00pm – 5.00pm
Hudson Crossing is comprised of musicians from all corners of the Hudson Valley. Made up of traditional Bluegrass instruments, we play heart-wrenching laments as well as foot-stomping breakdowns with equal enthusiasm, and our four part harmonies will leave you wanting more. Our repertoire includes traditional tunes, pop tunes done bluegrass style, and a healthy helping of original music. So come clap your hands, tap your feet, and get up and dance to the eclectic sounds of Hudson Crossing!
