The first annual RiverArts Music Tour will take place on Saturday, June 6 throughout Irvington, Ardsley, Dobbs Ferry, and Hastings-on-Hudson beginning at 12 p.m.  This inaugural event is modeled after the RiverArts Artists Studio Tour (now in its 22nd year) which showcases works each spring by local visual artists in the river towns community.

More than 150 musicians will participate in 80 performances at 24 different venues throughout the day for the Music Tour.  Genres represented will include folk, rock, classical, jazz, bluegrass and world music. Each artist or group will perform 40-minute sets.

Music Tour Producer Barbara Prisament said, “We’re excited by the number of musicians who are joining us, the quality of music that we’ll hear, the interesting hands-on workshops, and the diverse settings in which this will take place:  from back yards and front lawns to music venues, cafes, churches, temples and public spaces.   We encourage everyone to check out the brochure, plan your route, and join us in celebrating our exceptional local music community.”
