PAWTUCKET – Blackstone River Revival ZAP 50 Celebration with River Bend East songwriters will be held outside at Slater Mill, 67 Roosevelt Ave., on Saturday, Sept. 10, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Admission is free.
Now in its fourth year, River Bend East continues to highlight the regional songwriting talent found in Southern New England. At this year’s event they will feature folk acts Ian O’Neil from Deer Tick, J. Michael Graham, and Partington & Sweeney. River Bend East will hold its event on the same day as the ZAP50 Revival Celebration, which commemorates the clean-up of the Blackstone River and the local environmental movement that has persisted to this day. River Bend East Founder and Music Director, J. Michael Graham states, “we stand on the shoulders of the environmental activists who have come before. This year, River Bend East will commemorate Pete Seeger who performed at the original ZAP cleanup 50 years ago.”
