Cut to 1969, the Summer of Love and Woodstock.
Well, almost. This Philadelphia dance company offers a modern homage to
Woodstock or — according to the program notes — what the people listening to
the concert might have been doing in the fields during those three days that
defined an era.
The success of the Woodstock Festival 40 years ago prompted dreams of hundreds of other mythic Rock festivals throughout the United States. Including Cincinnati. As luck would have it, the city's first major outdoor Rock festival was scheduled for Sept. 6, 40 years ago this Sunday. Jim Tabrell, who organized it, joins other local musicians to recall the event and the times.
