The Water is Wide

Songs of the Oceans and Rivers
Event detail
 

A favorite of library audiences for his uplifting renditions of popular American folksongs, Tim Holt performs and discusses our heritage of sea chanteys, whaling songs, traditional songs ("Shenandoah" and "The Erie Canal"), and Woody Guthrie’s Columbia River songs promoting public power.  He includes an original song, "Sailing Down My Mountain Stream," adapted from a Pete Seeger song about cleaning up the Hudson River.  Holt’s version focuses on his own vision for restoring wild salmon to the upper reaches of the Sacramento River.  As always, Holt will encourage everyone to sing along.
