About the project ...
The Middle Susquehanna Riverkeeper Association is entering its fourth 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.
We need your help in selecting the songs that will be featured on Songs of the Susquehanna: Volume 4! Below, please listen to the submissions we received for this year's project and tell us which five, in order, are your favorite (and why). You can share with us up to five others that spoke to you as well. We will be scoring these based on your feedback and this will help us make the final decision on which 20 songs will make the final 2024 album. Those that fill out the full form by Feb. 29 will be entered into a random drawing for some association prizes.
If you have any questions, contact Riverkeeper John Zaktansky directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
Volume 3 for Songs of the Susquehanna is available for pre-ordering and CDs should be available by late April. You can purchase any combination of CDs from three years of this project here:
