Program Notes

The legendary three-day Woodstock music festival defined a generation and gave us unforgettable musical performances. Included in this powerful medley are: Soul Sacrifice (Santana); Proud Mary (Creedence Clearwater Revival); Pinball Wizard (The Who); Somebody to Love (Jefferson Airplane); With a Little Help from My Friends (Joe Cocker); Suite: Judy Blue Eyes (Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young) and Purple Haze (Jimi Hendrix). This is just like being there without the mud!
