Greenfield, MA. April 9, 2014. – Well-known musicians Robin and Linda Williams and Their Fine Group will play three shows throughout the Connecticut River valley to benefit the Connecticut River Watershed Council’s (CRWC) annual Source to Sea Cleanup.

They have also appeared on “The Grand Old Opry” and “Austin City Limits.” Pat and Tex LaMountain, of Greenfield, MA who led CRWC’s popular Living Along the River concerts, will open the shows.

Limited VIP tickets are available, which include refreshments with the artists before the show and premium seats.

The 18th annual Source to Sea Cleanup is scheduled for September 26 & 27, 2014. Each fall, CRWC members and volunteers clean up shorelines in in all four states (NH, VT, MA, CT) of the Connecticut River watershed. Thousands of volunteers of all ages and abilities work on foot or by boat to remove trash from the Connecticut River and its tributaries. To date, volunteers have prevented more than 851 tons of trash from flowing downstream. You can help protect our water resources and be a part of this fun and positive event by registering a cleanup group, joining an existing group, or reporting trash sites in need of cleaning. Visit www.ctriver.org to learn more about the event. Cleanup group registration will open in late spring.

CRWC advocates for the entire, four-state Connecticut River watershed, working to protect water—the river, its tributaries, lakes, fish—and the land, plants, and creatures connected to that water to keep them safe now and for future generations. To learn more about CRWC, or to make a contribution to help protect the Connecticut River, visit www.ctriver.org or call 413-772-2020 x201.
