Tonight’s gig’s in Bethel NY, the original Woodstock location, and the amphitheater staff graciously offered to give us a tour. 

One of my first CDs was a “Live at Woodstock” compilation, where I heard Jimi Hendrix, Richie Havens, Crosby Still and Nash, and so many others for the first time. Even as a kid, I recognized the visceral honesty, and that it was special.

What Woodstock represents resonates loudly, perhaps especially, today: within music and art - despite feeling marginalized and disenfranchised against brazenly corrupt, preposterous cronyism - your truth is safe, and heard.
