The river just keeps flowing on and on...
The Sun keeps going round to bring the dawn,
Life just keeps on going til it looks as though it's gone
But it really keeps on flowing on and on...

RiverArts Music Tour
Dear Friends, Announcing the Second Annual RiverArts Music Tour to take place: Saturday June 4th from 12PM to 12 Midnight!  At last year's inaugural event we hosted over 150 musicians playing all styles of music in 80 performances, at 26 locations throughout the Rivertowns. If you'd like to join us this year, registration is now open! MUSICIANS: Please register HERE by April 17th! You can play anywhere you'd like - your front porch, backyard, indoor studio, a public space or business - the only limit is your imagination - if you don't have a place to play, but want to,  check the "please connect me to a space" box and we'll do our best to do just that! HOSTS: If you would like to host music at your home or place of business please let me know and we'll connect you to musicians looking for a place to play! The event is rain or shine so please make sure you have a rain accommodation or we can list your space as "shine only". MUSIC LOVERS:  This year we have already "re-activated" the VFW Plaza in Hastings, with host musicians Tara Linhardt and Kimberley Hawkey, Kinnally Cove in Hastings-on-Hudson hosted by Adam Hart, and new this year will be a Blues & BBQ Stage in Draper Park hosted by Hastings High School Senior Jesse Pohl as his senior school project (if you're a blues musician reach out to me por favor so i can connect you with Jesse!). River Spirit Music has signed up as a host site (thanks Peter and Paula!) and the surprises keep pouring in -  we've already heard from musicians who will be playing Brazilian Jazz, Rock, Folk, Blues, Bluegrass, Swing, Classical, African, and Native American music…and we are pleased to announce that Purpl is our Signature Event Sponsor (thank you Sarah and Adel!) and as such they will be hosting another great night of live band karaoke for our closing party (if you missed it last year, this is your chance - it was so much fun!). Please find more info about the music tour HERE and if you want to play, or host, music please reach out to me directly or fill out the registration form by April 17th and we'll be in touch with you!   Mark your calendars, por favor, and consider inviting your friends to join you - it's a great way to experience our Villages!   Love, Barb (914) 643-0923
