Immigrant Stone Workers:  A Social History of the New Croton Dam Tour [link]
Meet in the parking lot near the playground at Croton Gorge Park, Rte. 129, Cortlandt 10567
As part of the Hudson River Valley Ramble, tour the Croton Dam and learn the history of its construction.  To many people, the New Croton Dam in Croton-on-Hudson, NY, represents the ingenuity of American engineers of the late nineteenth century. At completion, it stood as the tallest masonry dam in the world. People compared it to the pyramids and to the Great Wall of China as a testament to human genius.  The Dam is also a central feature in a dramatic labor story.  Hundreds of workers risked life and limb to turn the dazzling dreams and promises of politicians and engineers into a concrete reality.  This tour explores the forgotten stories of the immigrant laborers who built the Dam from 1892-1905. Fee of $10 to enter the park.  Contact:  Laura Compagni, compagnisabella@optimum.net, or 646-670-3947.

Still barely in his 30s, the Louisiana born axeman and songsmith has been selling millions of albums, throwing singles into the Top 10, shining a light on the rich blues of the past and forging ahead with his own modern twist on a classic sound he has embodied since his teens.
