Woodstock 50th Anniversary
Read my article about my journey to the Woodstock Music Festival in 1969.
Returning to the site of the original Woodstock Festival site in Bethel NY on the weekend of August 16th-18th 2019, joined by my daughter Julien, brothers and friends was glorious. The Bethel Museum of the Arts was built on the location that once was Yasgur’s farm. On Thursday August 16th we enjoyed a concert by Arlo Guthrie who performed exactly 50 years before on the opening day of the festival. This was followed by watching the full length Woodstock movie on a large screen at the Bethel pavilion. It felt like you were there at the festival! The music was beyond amazing, and the energy could never be replicated. Alvin Lee of Ten Years After doing “I’m Going Home” was incredible! Remembering hearing CS&N for the first time and how they rocked my world with their music made me cry! For much of the movie lightning lit up the sky around us. We watched the high energy and masterful performances of Richie Havens, Canned Heat, Janis Joplin, Crosby, Stills and Nash, Jefferson Airplane, Sha Na Na, and more as the lightning bolted, lighting up the night sky on each side of the pavilion . As the movie ended with Jimi Hendrix playing an electrifying version of The Star Spangled Banner, a boom of thunder, so intense it shook the pavilion and sacred ground where we sat , came down as if bringing an explosive message from Jimi himself reminding us like a cosmic message that “I’m still rockin’ .
