Steel Rail with Tod Gorr, Ellen Shizgal and Dave Clarke are part of the virtual Hudson Music Festival lineup featuring past concerts to help showcase arts and entertainment during the COVID-19 lockdown period.
The Hudson Music Festival is proud to make available three shows online from its ECHO 2020 edition filmed last fall in the cozy ‘Alibi Lounge’ barn in downtown Hudson.
February 3 featured Steel Rail with Tod Gorr, Ellen Shizgal and Dave Clarke (still available online), February 10 will showcase Rob Lutes with Rob Macdonald, and tune in February 17 to see Kira Flamenca with Zal Sissokho.
This project, carried out in collaboration with the Vaudreuil-Soulanges community television station Csur la Télé, aims to expose the region to music and art that they would not otherwise have encountered given the challenges of COVID-19.
Festival director Lynda Clouette-Mackay explains they had no choice but to adapt and that the option of offering a digital version has become a must. As part of its digital shift, Csur la télé is enhancing its webcasting service offering in order to finance its mission of broadcasting local content on its various platforms.
