Wednesday Woodstock 43rd Anniversary ~ Day One

Three (actually 4) Days of Peace & Music.

For the next four days I will feature some of the Artists and the Bands that played starting with Aug. 15th then 16th, 17th & 18th 1969.

My Original Woodstock 40th anniversary post is here with more in-depth pictures and video’s ( although some missing via YT).

8th song (auto-play) of a very long set for Richie Havens who they kept telling to stay on stage because Sweetwater hadn’t arrived yet. Motherless Child/Freedom became infamous at Woodstock for his energized powerful drenched in sweat ending.
