December 17, 2014 at The Legal Aid Society Holiday Party for Homeless and Other Vulnerable Children at the Synod House of The Cathedral of St. John the Divine in Manhattan

Legal Aid Party 2014My annual appearance. It has been one of my favorite gigs since I first appeared there in the mid 1980’s. About five hundred children enjoyed hot dogs and candy, face painting, painting, music, an appearance by Santa Claus, and gifts for all. Thanks to The Legal Aid Society for the photo (just published yesterday on The Legal Aid Society web site).

Friends of the Clearwater Landy 111914Friends of Clearwater 121914 group
Friday in Manhattan at the NYC Friends of Clearwater holiday party and celebration of fracking ban in New York, with a great group of activists and activist musicians. I played and sang my “Bah Humbug Polka” and “Chokehold” as part of a musical round robin. While folks were cleaning up the room, I played a selection of Christmas and Chanukah songs with a smattering of fun dances (e.g., polka, tango, hokey pokey). Thanks to Joel Landy for capturing the moment.
