July 18 marks the second day of the first annual Seeger Fest, a five-day tribute to one of America’s greatest folk musicians, who passed away earlier this year at the age of 94. The festival takes place all over Seeger’s beloved New York City and Hudson Valley, including shows in Central Park and the West Village. Friday’s show just so happens to be the only public memorial service for Seeger and will feature stories about the late folkster from some of his closest friends. Plus, it’s a great opportunity to get outside the city via a scenic 90-minute train ride. If a memorial service isn’t your deal, be sure to look into Seeger Fest’s other dates, which feature free concerts at Lincoln Center, Pier 46 and others.
