Clearwater's Great Hudson River Revival is about as idyllic as a folk music festival can get. Situated along the banks of the Hudson River in Westchester County, at Croton Point Park, it consistently draws an impressive array of songwriters and performers, always anchored by the now 94-year-old Pete Seeger who still performs. This years headliners include Mavis Staples, Kris Kristofferson, Son Volt, Hot Tuna and Judy Collins, to name a few.
Also on the bill is Levon Helm's Dirt Farmer Band, featuring guitarist Larry Campbell, his wife, singer Teresa Williams, basist Byron Isaacs, drummer Justin Guip and Levon's daughter Amy Helm. Levon himself, of course, passed away last year.
