One of the greatest things about life in the Hudson Valley is all the great music festivals that happen all summer long! We have always been known for a music scene because of Woodstock and Bethel Woods. Woodstock these days doesn't have the strong music scene it once did and the weekend crowd that goes to Woodstock, all seems to be there to just SHOP! People who come to buy property in Woodstock all seem to ask me where the best places to go for music are. Depending on what shows are around or who is playing, sometimes things in Woodstock can really give people a let down impression, (good thing the homes there are still so GREAT)!
The Clearwater Festival is a really cool weekend music event that came from Pete Seiger's mission of cleaning up the Hudson River. As a home owner on the Hudson, I am always grateful for all the years of work put in, (to this day) by Pete. Pete Seiger is to the Hudson Valley what Bruce Springstein is to New Jersey! The music festival is always full of amazing bands and also just alongside the Hudson River! Read more about it all here...http://www.clearwater.org/festival

Woodstock radio station WDST www.wdst.com puts on "Mountain Jam" this weekend! It's always such a popular event and has a vibe similar to a smaller version of THE Woodstock concert years ago. You can get a one day pass or a camping pass and enjoy four days of music! This year will probably be extra special because of the passing of Levon Helm and all the incredible tributes expected!
