A live musical performance from New York-based folk group Hudson Valley Sally. This is the group’s 7th annual concert at OSH, and they are proud to be joined by Mario Cancel-Bigay , singer/songwriter/cuatro player extraordinaire from Puerto Rico, and Ruben Gonzalez, singer/songwriter/guitarist extraordinaire from Argentina. It will be a spirited evening in English and Spanish.
While harmonic patterns and rhyme styles have evolved over the decades, we are not afraid to experiment with tradition. Our goal is to make the oldest songs sound fresh and to make the newest feel like you’ve always known them.
Most remarkable of all is how little many of the themes have changed – peace, poverty, and justice were the heart of the movements then, and still are today. Sadly, these songs are needed now more than ever. But hope is stronger than ever, and activist songs continue to make a difference. Our unique combination of musical sensibilities produces a new voice that adds one more link in the chain.
