Upstate New York is home for Martin Sexton, who grew up as the 10th of 12 kids in Syracuse. This is his third Clearwater appearance in a 20-plus-year career that FUV listeners have been able to follow all along. His set (with sweet backing vocals from the Brothers McAnn) includes many of the songs we've come to love.

There's probably no one more comfortable at Clearwater than Dar Williams. She grew up about 20 minutes from Croton Point Park in Chappaqua, and for many years she's lived up the river in Beacon, where Pete and Toshi Seeger made their home for more than 60 years.

Like Pete, Dar doesn't just live there, she's an involved member of the community. And also like Pete, she's been an environmental activist and has even served on the Clearwater board. This is her 18th year performing here.

Sam Baker - Sunday Breakfast - 2014

Oliver Beardsley

Texas singer-songwriter-photographer Sam Baker nearly lost his life in a terrorist attack in Peru in 1986. Instead of making him bitter, it made him empathetic. As he rebuilt his life, he turned that empathy into powerful and poignant songs. He shared his story and some of those songs in this session, accompanied by Carrie Elkin on vocals and Chip Dolan on keyboards.

Josh Ritter played his third Clearwater Festival on this beautiful Sunday afternoon — performing old favorites, songs from his most recent release The Beast In its Tracks, and providing a preview of a few new tunes. In keeping with the spirit of the day, honoring Pete and Toshi Seeger, he shared a very personal story of a letter Pete had written to him when Josh was 19.

Richard Thompson was a teenager when he co-founded Fairport Convention in 1967. Over the years he has proven himself to be a great songwriter, a captivating performer and an amazing guitarist. His last album, Electric, had him strapping on his Stratocaster, while his forthcoming Acoustic Classics has him unplugging once again. 'Acoustic Classics' would be an apt way to describe his set at Clearwater, which included "Dimming of the Day," "Wall of Death," and "1952 Vincent Black Lightning."
