Performing for Winter Walk community event

A video from last year's event.

Join me Saturday December 1st in lovely Hudson, NY for the 16th annual Winter Walk street fest. Warren St is closed to vehicular traffic, shops are open and live music is everywhere.

I'll be performing from 6-8pm at 428 Warren St in Culture + Commerce Project (a Hybrid gallery/showroom showcasing emerging furniture + accessories designers, lighting and fine art from the Hudson Valley to Brooklyn. Many of the craftspeople work utilizing reclaimed materials.)

A comment from owner Sherry Jo Williams: Hello from hudson...! (the downtown of upstate NY) We are thrilled to participate in our 2nd Winter Walk, Dec 1, this Saturday- from 4-8pm and honored to welcome for the 2nd year, NYCsubwayGirl! Thank you wonderful to hear her sing her folked-up blues in our gallery. Looking forward to it- and please join us if you find yourself looking for some big small town charm. Only 2 hours north of NYC by train or car.

cheers and happy holidays, sj williams

and here's a clip I made of my Music Under NY friends Paul and Marc Mueller of Mecca Bodega, performing to excited crowds.

Mecca Bodega Hudson Winter Walk 2011

I was performing in Hudson NY at an annual event called Winter Walk. I was happily surprised to find Paul and Marc Mueller of Mecca Bodega, my Music Under New York buddies, a wonderful duo of hammer dulcimer and percussion performing on a sidewalk to dancing children and enthralled listeners. 

Small world, Hudson is a special town and for a moment between the festively decorated main street USA, known as Warren Street and happy togetherness, there was a glimmer of what we are all capable of. 

You can't help but appreciate as you can see in this clip, that Paul and Marc had to deal with the elements, it was cold + dark, but they were rewarded with enthusiastic people on a fun night.

What inspires Paul "People who love what they do…'s a one shot deal, do it now."
