About The Festival
The 2020 Virtual Revival will take place on Saturday, June 20 here at http://www.clearwaterfestival.org, http://www.clearwater.org, Youtube and Facebook. The revival video stream begins at 11am Eastern time, and continues until 11pm. In case you miss it, or want to see parts of it again, there will be plenty of time to view the recorded version at the same web sites.
Clearwater Festival (aka “The Great Hudson River Revival” or “Revival”) features powerful statements by life-long activists and organizations such as Clearwater itself, the Sierra Club, Food and Water Watch and Leonard Peltier, along with performances by Grammy-winning musicians like Tom Chapin, Peter Yarrow and Bill Harley, Revival veterans like David Amram andMel & Vinnie, and newcomers like Kyle Tigges and the Judith Tulloch Band. Consistent with Clearwater’s longstanding commitment to accessibility, the Revival programming is staffed with American Sign Language interpreters.
Inspired by Pete Seeger’s desire to clean up the river over forty years ago, The Great Hudson River Revival initially helped raise the funds to build the sloop Clearwater, which has since become a world-renowned floating classroom and a symbol of effective grassroots action. Today, Hudson River Sloop Clearwater, Inc. is a non-profit organization that sails at the forefront of the nation’s environmental challenges. The revenue raised by the Revival goes to support Clearwater’s numerous educational programs and its work toward environmental and social justice—as well as keeping the sloop Clearwater afloat.
