CROTON-ON-HUDSON, N.Y. (AP) - The music and environmental festival founded by Pete Seeger has updated its eclectic summer line-up.

Clearwater’s Great Hudson River Revival said Thursday that its artists will include David Crosby, Los Lobos, Citizen Cope and Kate Pierson of the B52s.

Previously announced musicians include the Blind Boys of Alabama and singer-composer-producer Toshi Reagon (TOH’-shee RAY’-guhn), who’ve both performed at the White House.

Fans also will get to see the Klezmatics; folk pioneer Tom Paxton; country-Latin group The Mavericks; and Guster, to name just a few.

The festival will be held June 20-21 in Croton- (KROH’-tuhn) on-Hudson, New York.

Seeger started it over 40 years ago as a fundraiser for the environmental group Hudson River Sloop Clearwater.

All seven stages are powered by solar or bio-diesel generators.
