The Woodstock music festival was an historic cultural event that punctuated a notoriously tumultuous decade of social and political change. In this nostalgic glimpse back, we choose to view this 1969 event as the musical inflection point that connected the raw and rebellious music of the 60s to the Billboard Top 100 in the hedonistic 70s. Collectively, the music of both decades cemented the foundation of what we know today as rock and roll, and there is no question that it forever changed popular culture. Patrick Thomas, John McGaha, Brook Wood, and Katie Boeck, along with a pair of narrators take us on a journey through this songbook, and bolstered by an outstanding instrumental ensemble, deliver versions of a great playlist that will make you long for your favorite pair of bell-bottoms and platform shoes.
