About the project ...
The Middle Susquehanna Riverkeeper Association is entering its third year of the Songs of the Susquehanna project, which has been a huge success for a variety of reasons. For one, it has opened the door to conversations with new audiences about various river-related topics and issues. It also allows us to elevate our local musicians and show off their amazing levels of talent and passion for our region.
Below, you'll find the songs submitted for consideration for our Volume 3 album. They were sent in by local musicians who represent a wide variety of genres and experience levels.
Throughout the month of February, we ask for your help in listening to these submissions and telling us which ones you like the best. Specifically, please tell us (in order) which are your top 5 overall and then please give us five others that seemed to resonate with you.
In early March, we'll finalize the playlist with 20 selections that will be represented on the Songs of the Susquehanna: Volume 3 album. If you'd like to support this project specifically, please consider a donation in the form on this page.
If you have any questions, contact Riverkeeper John Zaktansky directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
