Walkabout Clearwater Chorus

The Walkabout Clearwater Chorus, founded by Pete Seeger in 1984 as a musical arm of the Hudson River Sloop Clearwater, has been going strong ever since, performing at venues as diverse as environmental festivals, peace rallies, the NYC subways, prisons and halfway houses, and a festival in Germany every two years. Their CD “We Have A Song!” features many songs written by their members and friends, and they are featured in two songs on Pete Seeger's Grammy-winning "Pete Seeger at 89" CD. Walkabout is a true “people’s chorus” made up of folks who love to sing and work hard at keeping alive the legacy of activist music. They run a monthly Coffeehouse in White Plains, whose performers include Pete Seeger, Magpie, Kim and Reggie Harris, Tom Paxton, Tom Chapin, of course Sharon Katz, and many more. Come join them at PVC to listen and sing-along! Check out their website at to find out more and get involved!
