Event description

Description

The Heartland Passage Tour is a unique new performance event that will travel on the Erie Canal September 2 – 23 to celebrate the bicentennial of the digging of the canal and demonstrate its cultural and historic impact. At this stop, Jay Ungar and Molly Mason, famous for their fiddle classic “The Lover's Waltz,” will perform at the Waterfront Barge Museum in Brooklyn. This stop also features a performance by Kimball, Canning, Bolt & McClure, presenting the music of traveling troupes along the canal in its heyday, and a screening of Boom and Bust: America’s Journey on the Erie Canal, a short documentary by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Paul Wagner that meditates on the economic cycles along the canal that speak to the fate and promise of the American dream.


About the tour: The tour is funded by the National Endowment for the Arts and a Regional Economic Development Grant through the New York State Council on the Arts. The Tour is sponsored by City Lore, the Erie Canal Museum and Livingston Arts. For more information see www.citylore.org/heartland-passage-tour.

The Erie Canal Museum in Syracuse provides engaging educational experiences that champion an appreciation and understanding of the Erie Canal. The mission of Livingston Arts is to enrich the quality of life in the Livingston County and Western New York by encouraging and promoting the arts and cultural activities.
