— West Milford singer-songwriter Loretta Hagen will appear with Pete Seeger & Friends, Tony Trischka, R J Storm and Old School, Spook Handy, Uncle Floyd and the Dull Music Band, Friday, Nov. 30, as part of the Pete and Toshi Seeger Wetlands Preservation Concert Series. The event begins at 7 p.m. at the Breslin Theater, located on the Felician College Campus in Lodi.

Hagen delivers rich alto vocals, polished, award-winning lyrics and tightly woven harmonies. A 2011 winner of the New Jersey Folk Festival Songwriter Competition, and 2012 finalist of the CT Folk Festival Songwriter Competition, Hagen recently released her third CD, "Mud and Stone," featuring uplifting, heartfelt ballads, playful up-tempo country swing, and cool bluesy grooves. “Mud and Stone” debuted at #10 on Folk DJ Charts, consistently #1 on the Roots Music Report for New Jersey, #5 Top 50 Folk Albums RMR, and is receiving airplay throughout the US, Canada and Europe. Hagen will be accompanied by Gary Hagen on guitars/vocals and Linda Lambiase on djembe/vocals.

The night is presented by Uncle Floyd and John Dull and promises to be an evening of "banjos galore and honky-tonk piano, as well as an evening of outlandish chuckles and thoughtful folk provocation!"

This is the fourth concert in the Pete and Toshi Seeger Wetlands Preservation Concert Series. When the Seegers eyed expansive wetlands during travels on the New Jersey Turnpike, it occurred to them how fragile these beautiful meadows and other wetlands in the northeast are. They are in need of awareness and aggressive protection.

This string of concerts, kicked off by Pete and Friends last November, will have as its goal awareness proliferation surrounding the wonderful opportunities, and beauties that lie in our wetlands. The series will encourage proactive involvement.

There will be a pre-concert expo featuring booths and information tables hosted by the NJ Friends of Clearwater, Audubon Society, Overpeck Preserve, meadowlands artists and videographers and members of the Gore team. An environmental activism award will be given for outstanding stewardship.

This concert is sponsored by the Sierra Club, Boiling Springs Savings Bank, WFDU 89.1 FM and the Star Ledger/NJ.com.
