CRY CRY CRY REUNITES AT THE CLEARWATER FESTIVAL!!!

 

LUCY KAPLANSKY, RICHARD SHINDELL & DAR WILLIAMS PERFORM TOGETHER FOR THE FIRST TIME IN NINETEEN YEARS!!!  

 

New York, NY– Celebrated singer-songwriters Lucy Kaplansky, Richard Shindell and Dar Williams will revive their celebrated folk-pop collaboration, Cry Cry Cry, on June 18th at the Clearwater Festival in Croton-on-Hudson, NY for their first performance in nineteen years. The band recorded their eponymous debut in 1998 for Razor & Tie Records followed by a sold-out nationwide tour including New York’s Town Hall.

The collection of twelve mostly cover songs was really a tribute to fellow singer-songwriters. A mainstay on radio during the late 1990s and early 2000s, the album ranked fourth among AAA radio station’s most played records in 1999 and continued in high rotation well into the 2000s.  

The record was consistently praised by the press: The Washington Post raved, “Cry Cry Cry illustrates the advantages of taking the best works of contemporary folk musicians and fleshing them out with lovely, three-part harmonies” and the New York Times cheered for the trio’s “gorgeous harmonies.” Entertainment Weekly wrote “Cry Cry Cry’s purity of heart and sound is spirit renewing.”

Cry Cry Cry will perform selections from their debut as well as favorites from each of their individual discographies.

While each of the band members has previously performed at the Clearwater Festival, Cry Cry Cry are enthusiastic about returning to the stage together. Shindell said, “we were called back into existence by Clearwater. They floated the idea of a reunion for several years and we finally thought, if not now then when?”

Each member of Cry Cry Cry has spoken about their belief in the power of songs and the power of singing in harmony. Pete Seeger dedicated his life to teaching the world to sing together so it’s fitting that the reunion will take place at Clearwater.

“We certainly did not expect to be reuniting at this unique moment in time, when people are coming together giving voice, partly through music, to what matters and to our collective values.” Kaplansky stated.

Williams added, “When you have a musical bond, it’s like siblings. You are always returning to that unspoken language and understanding. I love Richard’s and Lucy’s voices more than ever.”

Social Stream

At the Clearwater Festival, we are proud to offer festival-goers not only the chance to come aboard dockside for free tours, but the opportunity to sail with us on either of these historic Tall Ships. Sails are two hours and leave from the barge at the Working Waterfront. The licensed captain and professional crew will take you and your family for a peaceful sail around Haverstraw Bay and you are welcome to help raise the sail and take the helm, or just kick back and enjoy the view. You are welcome to bring a picnic and you won’t even miss out on the music as we staff each vessel with hardy, sea-going musicians to belt out a shanty or two.
