Through his friendship with Pete, and as a member of Clearwater's Power of Song, Jacob had the opportunity to play at many distinguished venues including The Guthrie Center, The Tarrytown Music Hall, New York's Symphony Space and Lincoln Center Out Of Doors. He's been fortunate to share the stage with notable musicians including David Amram, Guy Davis, Livingston Taylor, Jackson Browne, Tom Chapin and Arlo Guthrie.



Susan (Fisher) Wright is a former music recording engineer (De La Soul "Three Feet High and Rising") who now teaches music in Beacon NY at the high school and the middle school. Her students keep her mighty busy but she does find time now and then to write songs. Pete Seeger told her to write one about Sybil Ludington so she did and it is dedicated to all of you who live in her neighborhood.



Rick Aparicio played in various bands in South Florida 1974-1980 and in the Bronx 1981-1987. He also played in the Beacon-based band The Costellos from 2002-2015. He is a singer-songwriter and plays bass and guitar.
