Since 1988 Blue Water Music has presented special musical events on boats around the Northeast and in 1995 founded the NYC Blues Cruise. This year Blue Water and Music Without Borders, presenters of world music, singer-songwriters, folk, jazz and blues artists throughout NYC have joined together to co-produce the series.
The NYCBC, now in its 11th season, brings you the summer's most unique and exciting musical experience - a scenic cruise around Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty and the NYC Skyline featuring live performances from the finest Blues, Folk, Singer-songwriters, Rock and Zydeco artists.
Sailings are every Wednesday at 7pm & 9:30pm from July 12 through August 30. The cruises depart from the Circle Line docks at 42nd Street and the Hudson River, Pier 83 - rain or shine. Each cruise is a 2 hour tour with a cash bar and food available on board.
