Shakespeare's darkest comedy explores bigotry, justice, and the limitations of the law. The young Venetian gentleman Bassanio has squandered all his money, but he needs 3,000 ducats so that he can travel to Belmont and woo the beautiful heiress Portia. His devoted friend Antonio helps him by borrowing the cash from the moneylender Shylock. But when Antonio is forced to default on the loan, Shylock seeks a gruesome revenge...and Portia and Bassanio find themselves in a desperate struggle to save Antonio's life.

Enjoy vibrantly danceable live music accompanied by spectacular sunsets over the Hudson River!

River Whyless puts a hauntingly sweet spin on traditional foundations with a sound full of lush harmonies, wide sweeping arrangements driven by dark percussion, and metaphors built of firewood and sap.

Their recent EP, the bands first release since their 2012 debut album, marks a notable evolution in their collective voice. Anderson's voice finds a mark between Sandy Denny's ethereal plea and Crystal Gayle's country swoon. English trad-folk sounds are some of the band's obvious touchstones, putting them in a category similar to contemporaries like Fleet Foxes and Stornoway.
