Richie Havens at Woodstock

richie havens2This is the day we give thanks!  Celebrating Memorial Day can be a stirring and emotional day.  But know this – our country is rejoicing in its freedom.  Despite the shackles that seem to be tightening around our ideas and dreams, we are a free country.  And I thank God for that.

The next few days I will post some of the highlights of our freedom as played out at Woodstock in 1969.  It was that year in August when over 200,000 people congealed on a 600-acre dairy farm in Bethel, New York–some 50 miles from Woodstock–owned by Max Yasgur for three days of peace, love and rock ‘n roll.

I will return Tuesday with the Blog!  In the meantime, light up a cigar – and “Let The Sunshine In!”

Richie Havens sang for over two hours as the opening act at Woodstock because the other bands were stuck in eight miles of traffic to the festival.

Sing with Richie, feel his passion for FREEDOM!
