Oh Hudson! A Music and Poetry Celebration of the Hudson Valley

“David Gonzalez has created another masterpiece for young and old alike.”
—Mccallum Theater

"Along with folk and field hollers, Upstate's infectiously sunny organic stew stirs together strands of bluegrass, jazz, blues, Broadway, gospel, soul, and pop."
—Chronogram

Oh Hudson! is a rich multi-arts celebration of the history, people, and promise of the Hudson River Valley. Drawing on the music of Pete Seeger, old river tunes, and new original songs, this collaborative project will make your feet stomp and your heart open to the beauty of the Hudson River.

David Gonzalez is a professional storyteller, poet, playwright, musician and public speaker. He is a cultural ambassador for the U.S. State Department, and is the proud recipient of the International Performing Arts for Youth “Lifetime Achievement Award for Sustained Excellence.” Mr. Gonzalez was named a Fellow of the Joseph Campbell Foundation and was nominated for a Drama Desk Award for “Unique Theatrical Experience” for The Frog Bride.  

Upstate is a group of people dedicated to creating visceral American music with clever rhythms and harmonies. The band’s blend of Americana/Jazz and Soul/Funk make for a unique, body warming sound. The members of the band Upstate live in New York’s beautiful Hudson Valley.
