Fifty years ago this August, on a farm north of New York, over 400, 000 young folk gathered for three days of music, love and peace. A pivotal event in musical history, thirty-two acts performed. Amongst them: Santana, Creedence, Arlo, Jimi, Janis, Joan, Joe Cocker, The Who, Melanie, Blood Sweat & Tears, The Band, Jefferson Airplane & Crosby Stills Nash & Young. Along with our hippy band, come and celebrate with songs like Proud Mary, My Generation, Comin' Into Los Angeles, Piece of My Heart, We Shall Overcome, The Weight and, of course, Joni's Woodstock. No experience needed. ALL voices welcome.
