Greenfield, MA – The Connecticut River Watershed Council’s (CRC) fall concert series brings well-known artists Robin & Linda Williams and Their Fine Band to three shows throughout the Connecticut River watershed to benefit CRC’s 17th annual Source to Sea Cleanup. Robin & Linda’s blend of bluegrass, folk, old-time and acoustic country music is known from NPR’s Prairie Home Companion. They have also appeared on “The Grand Old Opry” and “Austin City Limits.” Pat and Tex LaMountain, who led CRC’s popular Living Along the River concerts, will open for Robin and Linda.
Join CRC to see Robin and Linda Williams perform live on Friday, September 20, 7:30pm at the Pentangle Town Hall Theater in Woodstock, VT; Saturday, September 21, 7:30pm at Memorial Hall in Shelburne Falls, MA; or Sunday, September 22, 3pm at The Kate in Old Saybrook, CT. Tickets can be purchased online at www.ctriver.org/news-events/concert/ or by calling 1-800-838-3006 (CT call 877-503-1286). Starting August 15, Memorial Hall tickets can also be purchased at World Eye Bookshop in Greenfield, MA, Mocha Maya’s and Boswell’s Books in Shelburne Falls, MA.
Registration for the 17th annual Source to Sea Cleanup on October 4 &5 is underway. CRC members and volunteers will clean up shorelines in in all four states (NH, VT, MA, CT) of the Connecticut River watershed. Volunteers of all ages and abilities head out to locations of their choice to clean the Connecticut River and its tributaries on foot or by boat. To date, volunteers have prevented more than 806 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 up on our new website, www.ctriver.org.
CRC 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.
