Woodstock Tribute Concert!
October 12, 7:30pm
Woodstock provided half a million people with music of many genres, across three days – outside. This time, during the year of its 50th anniversary, we focus on the songs from that seminal event, along with well-known American anthems that inspire hope for peace, justice, and unity, in one evening of rousing music you can sing along to – inside! From folk to rock-n-roll, the stellar line-up includes Walter Parks, who toured for nine years with Richie Havens; soulful rocker Kentavius Jones; Chris Noyes, the new glorious vocalist for Ocean Orchestra; WAMMIE-award winner singer-songwriter Lilo Gonzalez; Brooke Parkhurst and Rowan Corbett (of Carolina Chocolate Drops); and Downwire, a local band that promises to rock your socks off. Warm up your pipes and be prepared to join in on the grand finale. Hosts for this concert include congressman Jamie Raskin, Takoma Park mayor Kate Stewart, Silver Spring Regional Center's Reemberto Rodriguez, and Steve Hoffman, program director at WOWD-LP Takoma Park.
