Granny D to be feted this saturday at Clearwater Festival

This Saturday, June 19, starting at 3:20 p.m., a forty minute "shout out" will honor Doris "Granny D" Haddock. Folksoul Band (her own "Tattoo") will be the principle performers, hopefully joined by Pete Seeger, a long-time close friend. A tribute will be read by Dan Weeks, President of ACR (Americans for Campaign Reform); Doris spoke there in 2006.

The Clearwater Festival 2010--The Great Hudson River Revival, a music and environmental summer festival is now in its 41st year, and has become the nation's oldest and largest annual festival of its kind. It was first inspired by Pete Seeger and friends, who built the sloop "The Clearwater" and began raising funds and awareness to restore the Hudson River. Sustainability and social responsibility are among its goals.

The festival runs from 10 AM until dusk on Saturday and Sunday, June 19th and 20th. It is sited on the grounds of Croton Point Park, along the river's edge at Croton-on-Hudson, NY. More info at
