It then moved to the Cohoes Music Hall, but after 2003 it had no fixed home. Since 2007 it has been located in Proctor's Theatre in Schenectady, New York. The Eighth Step is run by who is also attached to the Clearwater Festival in which Pete Seeger was the driving force. The Eighth Step has hosted performers Ani DiFranco, Janis Ian, Greg Brown, Kate Wolf, Utah Phillips, Sheila Jordan and Richie Havens to name a few. The long list of known and unknown artists with whom The Step has worked includes Pete Seeger, Milt Hinton, , Janos Starker, Ronnie Gilbert, Greg Brown, Holly Near, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Richie Havens, Guy Davis, Lost in the Trees and independent rock phenomenon Ani DiFranco.
