Art & music in the woods with the Hudson River Playback Theatre and more at the Rail Trail Café


There is a natural backdrop and canopy of trees, a small sound system, a few lights, and open ears and hearts at the Rail Trail Café, 310 River Road Extension, Rosendale. Upcoming performances and events include Wild Swan Band with Celtic songs, jogs, reels and waltzes, at 4 p.m. Sunday, June 4; Climate roundtable discussion, 7 p.m. Friday, June 9; Singer, songwriter Steven Michael Pague, 5:30 p.m. Saturday, June 10; devotional music with the Spirit Brothers, Ev Mann, Steve Gorn, Joseph Jastrab, and Ned Leavitt, at 12:30 p.m. and the improvisors of Hudson River Playback Theatre, at 2 p.m. Sunday June 11. Sitting under the tall trees just steps away from the Rail Trail, audience members are invited to share personal stories and see them enacted on the spot, along with improvisational music. Any story is welcome, inspired by nature, or memory, or a reflection. And on Friday, June 16, at 5:30 p.m. is Levanta with Ev Mann, Thomas Workman, Gabriel Dresdale, and Timothy Hill.

A basket is passed at all events, and $10 or pay-what-you-can is suggested.
