Description:

The Gowanus Dredgers Canoe Club is excited to announce a performance by Steve Suffet and Anne Price at the Creekers Jamboree.
 
Creekers Jamboree will take place May 28th, 5 pm – 8 pm. Band starts at 5:30 pm.

Creekers Jamboree is a music series that celebrates Roots Music on the banks of the Gowanus Canal.

This season, the Gowanus Dredgers are reconnecting Gowanus regulars and visitors with events at our canal. We hope to offer free canoe voyages on Saturdays before shows, south of the active EPA cleanup (location TBD), but stop by our boathouse for some hootin’ good times as the sun sets.

Steve Suffet is best described as an old fashioned folksinger. His repertoire is a mixture of railroad songs, trucker songs, coal miner songs, cowboy songs, union songs, old time ballads, blues, ragtime, gospel, bluegrass, topical-political songs, Woody Guthrie songs and Irish songs, and whatever else tickles his fancy, including a few songs he has written himself. The Gowanus Dredgers Canoe Club is especially excited to welcome Steve Suffet https://stevesuffet.com/ as he wrote one of the best folks songs about the Gowanus Canal which you can listen to here: https://www.soundclick.com/music/songInfo.cfm?songID=3791247
 
New York City native Anne Price has often been compared to Joan Baez. Anne began performing when she was a student at Hunter College in the Bronx in the 1960s, and since then she has appeared at venues as close as the Peoples’ Voice Cafe in New York City and as far away as the 15th century Black Swan Public House in York, England. Her repertoire includes everything from traditional folk ballads to country songs, songs of the sea, cowboy songs, songs about work and the labor movement, and love songs. She sings many songs from folk based songwriters, such as Jean Ritchie, Peggy Seeger, Woody Guthrie, Si Kahn, and many others, and she writes a few fine songs of her own. Her voice is strong, rich, and expressive. http://www.anneprice.com/
