The Erie Canal Sings

Wednesday, October 2nd at 7 pm

Join us in welcoming Bill Hullfish, author of The Erie Canal Sings! Bill will be bringing the music of the Erie Canal to life with some musical guests along with a discussion of the history of The Erie Canal and a book signing. In addition to having a great time, you will also be supporting a great cause! A portion of all proceeds will be donated to the Friends of the Macedon Public Library.

Some more details about the book: Life working along the banks of the Erie Canal is preserved in the songs of America’s rich musical history. Thomas Allen’s “Low Bridge, Everybody Down” has achieved iconic status in the American songbook, but its true story has never been told until now. Erie songs such as “The E-ri-e Is a-Risin'” would transform into “The C&O Is a-Risin'” as the song culture spread among a network of other canals, including the Chesapeake and Ohio and the Pennsylvania Main Line. As motors replaced mules and railroads emerged, the canal song tradition continued on Broadway stages and in folk music recordings. Author Bill Hullfish takes readers on a musical journey along New York’s historic Erie Canal.
