The Big Busk: Communal Strum & Sing-along with special guest Clarence Greenwood and Friends

Calling all acoustic guitar players! Musicians of all ages and abilities are invited to participate in this free concert on Saturday, July 13 where you are the performer. Hosted by Citizen Cope, in partnership with Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy.

Busk (intr. v) is defined as “to play music or entertain in a public space’ from old French busquer, to prowl; from Italian buscare, to procure, gain.”

Clarence Greenwood, also known by his stage name, Citizen Cope, is an American songwriter, producer and singer. He invites you to strum along with him and a few friends at a community musical happening at Pier 1 Granite Prospect on Saturday, July 13 . This program is a part of Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy’s free summer programming. Musicians of all ages and abilities are invited to participate — by helping to select the songs to be performed, and by taking part in a massive, sing- and play-along!
