Community Folk Music in the Hudson Valley

This evening we drove from our home in New Jersey to a town in the Hudson Valley of New York – Rock Tavern.

It was part of the musical journey that my wife has been on for many years, and which I have joined for the last seven or eight or so. She was playing a set at the Hudson Valley Folk Guild. And I was there to:

  • Drive
  • Carry stuff
  • Meet fun people
  • Listen to groovy music
  • Eat nice home-cooked soup and cakes
  • Applaud my good fortune

Then, the long ride back home, kinda late. I never was a “kinda late” kind of guy.

The Hudson Valley Folk Guild has chapters (and events monthly) in Rock Tavern, Poughkeepsie, and Kingston. If you are in the area, you might want to check them out, for a good dose of what happens when a community comes together to keep the folk music scene alive and clapping! 🙂
