The Songs of Woodstock
In August, 1969, the Woodstock Festival brought together 32 acts and half a million fans for “An Aquarian Exposition: 3 Days of Peace & Music.” Artists gave legendary performances, from Richie Havens, who opened the concert with a tribute to “Freedom,” to Crosby and Stills & Nash, who went on at 3 a.m. Along the way, Joan Baez, Melanie, Arlo Guthrie, Santana, Canned Heat, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Janis Joplin, Sly & The Family Stone, The Grateful Dead, The Who, Joe Cocker, The Band, Blood Sweat & Tears and many others electrified the giant crowd before Jimi Hendrix signed off at 8 a.m. Monday with “The Star Spangled Banner.” The film won Best Documentary at the Academy Awards, and 50 years later, the children of the 1960s are still referred to as “the Woodstock Generation.”
Join Rod & the Humdingers for a fun and low-decibel remembrance of this historic event, as told in its songs.
