TWO NIGHTS OF RARE AND NEVER BEFORE SEEN FOOTAGE OF THE WOODSTOCK MUSIC AND ART FAIR!
Fifty years ago in August 1969, 500,000 people traveled to upstate New York to enjoy three days of peace, love and music. Richard Nixon was President, the Vietnam war raged on… there were protests and marches across the country; Chicago had been rocked by riots at the ’68 Democratic Convention. But the Woodstock movement brought people together at the utopian paradise of Max Yasgur’s farm for the magical and now legendary Woodstock Music and Art Fair.
Our tribute will be two evenings of rare film footage featuring stories, interviews and rare performances of some of the greatest rock and roll stars of Woodstock – Jimi Hendrix, Crosby Stills, Nash & Young, The Who, Sly and The Family Stone, Janis Joplin, Ritchie Havens, Melanie, Joe Cocker, Santana, Ten Years After, and many more artists, including some who never made it to the final cut of the Woodstock movie!
Part One (Friday 8/16) includes performances by:
Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young
Sly and the Family Stone
Ten Years After
Paul Butterfield Blues Band
Part Two (Saturday 8/17) includes performances by:
The Grateful Dead
