The 40-year-plus annual Great Hudson River Revival Music and Environmental Festival was held this weekend, raising funds for a slew of environmental protection organizations. It featured live music from Pete Seeger, Dan Zanes & Elizabeth Mitchell, Billy Bragg, Janis Ian David Bromberg, Martin Sexton, Arlo Guthrie and the Clearwater Generations, and many others.

More than 50 groups and singers performed on seven stages in Croton Point Park, which sits on the shores of the Hudson River. Attendance was said to be close to 10,000. There was music, food and crafts, but they main draw was environmentalism, and people wanted to show they care about global climate change, and keeping the environment clean and healthy.
