Celebrating Woodstock's 50th Anniversary: Three Hours of Peace, Love and Music
It's been 50 years since Woodstock attracted 400,000 people to a farm in upstate New York to listen to music by such artists as Janis Joplin, Joe Cocker, the Band, Sly and the Family Stone and the first live performance of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. Over the course of three days, the world changed as the peace-loving, hippy culture took root in the American consciousness. Sure careers were launched in those three days and the event was historic and unprecedented in scope. But more importantly, the possibility that people could come together and live peacefully, caring for one another and helping each other, created a feeling of optimism as the 1970's began. On August 3, musicians from a large number of different bands all around Minnesota will join together and play the most iconic songs from that weekend. Who knows? Maybe we'll spark a renewed sense of optimism that peace can be had yet in our lifetime.
