CATCH-AND-RELEASE FISHING & ART: Join BPCPC’s Master Anglers and drop a line for some of the 30-plus species of fish that live in New York Bay (the Hudson River’s estuary). During GO FISH, barbless hooks minimize injuries to both fish and participants. Fish are placed in saltwater tanks for observation and identification before being released back into the Hudson. Live demonstrations and displays teach fish anatomy and heighten awareness of the ecology, flourishing marine life, and current state of good health of the Hudson River and its estuary. Drop in on fish-related art projects. Rods, reels and bait are provided for those who don’t bring their own.
FAMILY PERFORMANCE: Rani Arbo and daisy mayhem, an exuberant string band, plays lively, original tunes and American classics. The four person ensemble draws from 150 years of American music, combining 4 part vocal harmonies with fiddle, guitar, banjo, ukulele, and a 95% recycled percussion rig of a cardboard box, tin cans, caulk tubes, and a vinyl suitcase in lieu of a bass drum. Reinventing classics from Leonard Cohen to Bruce Springsteen, their originals range from blues, to bluegrass, to crooner swing. Their most recent album, Some Bright Morning, was released on Signature Sounds in April 2012.
