Wednesday, June 21- Erie Canal Debate, Buffalo Historical Museum

Re-enactors portraying early political leaders debated whether the planned Erie Canal should have its western terminus in the village of Buffalo or Black Rock.  We played Erie Canal songs in the gorgeous lobby before the program, and were asked to play a few from the stage area before the program began.

Thanks to our friends at the Black Rock Historical Society who hosted this event and posted many of these pictures.

Saturday, July 22- Hodfest.

Hodfest seemed dead for a couple of years, but like the giant Fingal, it was only sleeping until it was needed again.  We were proud to be the opening band for this year's revival of the traditions of the Rockalllian Hodtoters,  "Let the seagulls rise..."
