The Music of Woodstock
Forty years ago this week, flower children, political dissidents, dropouts, veterans, bikers, hippies, and most of all, music lovers, were making their way to a remote, nondescript farm in Bethel, New York. What they participated in there would become a landmark in rock & roll history, a touchstone for those who were there, and an enduring symbol of the sixties. On Tuesday, we’ll look at the Woodstock Festival – who played and what they played, what it meant to music lovers and musicians, and Woodstock’s legacy.
