A Musical Journey Along the Erie Canal w/ Cosby & Tom
Schoharie Crossing State Historic Site will host musicians Cosby Gibson and Tom Staudle as they take you on a journey along the historic Erie Canal through music. Gibson and Staudle have developed this terrific program to provide the history of the grand old Erie through the music it inspired. The program begins at 6:30pm on Saturday, September 30th at the Schoharie Crossing Visitor Center on Schoharie Street in Fort Hunter.
Learn some interesting facts about the canal, sing along to a few tunes you probably already know, and hear some that you may not. This well researched program about the canal era and its music brings alive the soul of what it was like to travel on, work on, and live alongside the artificial waterway during it’s heyday from the 1820s to the early 20th century. Come enjoy the music and check out some of the amazing historic canal features at Schoharie Crossing.
