“Where Family and Friends Gathered in Song:
The History of the Fox Hollow Folk Festival”
Presenter: Kathryn Sheehan
From 1966 to 1980, thousands gathered in the hills of Petersburgh, New York and joined Bob, Evelyn, and Martha Beers for four days of traditional folk music. Fox Hollow became one of the most popular folk music festivals in the country and launched the careers of performers Don McLean, Gordon Bok, Bruce "Utah" Phillips, Dan Smith and many more. Rensselaer County and Troy City Historian Kathryn Sheehan will explore the history and traditions of this legendary music festival.
