Event description

Description

This family-friendly folk operetta presents the history of the Erie Canal in a performance form popular in the canal’s most productive years. Featured instruments include hammered dulcimer, banjo, fiddle, squeezebox, and hurdy-gurdy.

As Bells and Motley, Sondra and John Bromka have been entertaining and educating audiences of all ages through folk and historical music for more than 30 years.

Canal to Coast: Reuniting the Waters is a program of the Waterfront Alliance made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature. This series of performances will take place aboard Lehigh Valley no. 79, a 104 year old Lehigh Valley Railroad barge moored in Red Hook, Brooklyn. In addition to performances, Canal to Coast will offer boat tours focused on Erie Basin in Red Hook, Brooklyn and its role in helping the Erie Canal make New York City a world capital. Tickets to performances will cost $2 (plus processing fee) each. Boat ride tickets will cost $5 each (plus processing fee).
