was a defining year for celebrating important changes to the culture of America. Many of us spent the turbulent 60’s fighting to end the war in Vietnam, marching to advance civil rights and advocating peace, love and harmony. We were, and many of us remain, interested in truth, creativity and a move back to nature. To put some perspective on the times, one could buy a substantial house for $16,000 and considered $10,000 to be a more than adequate yearly salary. Perhaps we are again returning to that simpler time. Michael Lang produced a successful Miami Pop Festival in 1968 before he moved to Woodstock to help celebrate the 60’s social movements. The 1969 Woodstock Music & Art Fair was inspired by the Woodstock Sound-Outs and the Miami Pop Festival.

The The Festival Festival Was Not Not Was Here Here

Pat Horner I recently asked Michael some questions regarding the concert: P.H. (Pat Horner), How did the ’69 Festival define you and Woodstock? M.L. It defined us as a generation who got involved politically and socially and that gave us a real voice.

Lois Woolley

P.H. The film TAKING WOODSTOCK shows some of the idealism and personal freedom of the time. Is it a correct version of what really happened? M.L. The film of course is fictionalized and other than some script notes, I was very briefly involved. I haven’t seen the final cut yet

P.H. What lessons can 2009 learn from 1969? M.L. If you don’t learn from past mistakes you are doomed to repeat them. The 60’s were a time of social unrest, an unpopular and unjust war and economic hardships. Sound familiar?

P.H. I know Woodstock has taken care of the art and music part, but how are we doing on the peace and love aspect? M.L. We are doing better now on peace and love, definitely moving ahead. I think that Obama’s election will usher in a new era of respect for one another.

P.H. Personal Creativity abounds here. So what really is the Woodstock lifestyle? M.L. A natural, organic, and sustainable one.

Michael Lang has a memoir being released by Harper Collins this spring, titled THE ROAD TO WOODSTOCK. See page 39 for details.

To kick off the 40th anniversary celebration of the 1969 Woodstock Festival, the Historical Society of Woodstock and the Woodstock Chamber of Commerce and Arts cosponsored a panel discussion on August 9, 2008 at the Colony Café in Woodstock. The purpose of the discussion was to explore the events leading up to the world-renowned 1969 Woodstock Music & Art Fair, which actually took place in Bethel, New York. The panelists were Michael Lang, Woodstock resident and legendary ’69 festival promoter; Jean Young, artist and co-author with Lang of Woodstock Festival Remembered; Bill West, active in local government during the sixties; Jeremy Wilber, former Town Supervisor and bartender during the sixties at the Sled Hill Café; and Paul McMahon, musician and Woodstock Mothership impresario. Geddy Sveikauskas, publisher of the Woodstock Times, served ably as moderator. The discussion was lively and audience participation was very enthusiastic.

The other panelists, the moderator, and the audience itself provided context for the ’69 festival with their own recollections of the Woodstock music scene—in the late sixties and before. The roots of the ’69 festival stretch all the way back to Woodstock’s early prominence in the arts and crafts movement, through its glassmaking companies (early 1800s) and the Byrdcliffe and Maverick art/music colonies (beginning in 1902). Hervey White, founder of Woodstock’s Maverick Colony, staged a fund-raiser music festival in 1916 that was so successful it was continued until 1931. During this time Woodstock became a magnet for artists, and increasingly, musicians. Then in the late 1960s, a series of Sound-Out music festivals were produced in Woodstock. Many of these were emceed by WBAI’s Bob Fass (Radio Unnameable), and featured such icons as Paul Butterfield, Tim Hardin, Richie Havens, Van Morrison, Happy and Artie Traum, the Blues Magoos and Don Preston.



In this excerpt from the August 2008 panel discussion, Geddy Sveikauskas references Woodstock’s ongoing history of music festivals:

The August 2008 event also featured a music concert— reminiscent of the Sound-Out music festivals that had occurred regularly in Woodstock during the late sixties. Eighteen music acts participated, including headliners from the sixties such as Peter Walker, Larry Packer and Steve Knight, and more contemporary performers such as Naked, the Dharma Bums, Joey Eppard and Frankie and His Fingers. Weston Blelock and Julia Blelock

Dion Ogust

Geddy Sveikauskas (GS): How did the festivals like the Maverick and the Sound-Outs inspire and guide your thinking? Michael Lang (ML): Well, I think greatly. The SoundOuts were kind of the spark for the Woodstock festival in that it got me thinking about doing the concert here. I’d done a series of concerts in Florida and then the festival [Miami Pop Festival of 1968]. The Sound-Outs just had a great feel, and it was in the country and it provided all the guidelines that I needed, and I was sort of thinking of a broader event but with the same kind of emotional impact. So it had a lot to do with our early thinking. GS: And how about the Maverick festivals? Did you know anything about them at the time? ML: I did. Jean and Jim [Young] sort of educated me to a lot of that history . . . The reason it became a music and art fair, frankly, was because of the background of this town and the Maverick festivals. 6

This material is based on a forthcoming book from WoodstockArts.com: Roots of the 1969 Woodstock Festival—The Backstory to “Woodstock.” Scheduled to be released in June, the book will include a full transcript of the two hour panel discussion and a photo essay of never-before-seen images of the events leading up to the ’69 Woodstock festival.

By the Time We got to Woodstock


By the time we got to Woodstock, the festival that is, we were coming down from the town of Woodstock, directed by a big handmade sign at the entrance of the village that showed the way to Bethel. So when we finally got there, parking in a field and walking miles to the concert site, there were, well not half a million, but a lot of people peacefully sitting in this great natural amphitheater.

Ten years before the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock, the great English navigator Henry Hudson set out in the Half Moon, a small ship built by the Dutch East India Company of Holland in 1609 in the vain hope of Nita Sacks finding a shorter route to the East. The cramped vessel and cold weather led to hardships and threats of mutiny before Hudson entered what is now the New York Harbor. Believing the waterway led to China, Hudson ventured up the river towards Albany. He explored “as pleasant a land as one can tread upon,” and made friends of the Natives who gave him tobacco and corn.

We immediately started getting high and eating all our food. That night as Joan Baez sang “Joe Hill,” we made our way to find a dry place to sleep. The feeling I got Vita being there was an overwhelming sense of community, familiarity, peacefulness and, of course, an altered sense of reality. Everyone was stoned and peaceful, enjoying the music and one another, and generally in a happy place. So how come it’s forty years later and smoking marijuana is still a crime? I know the economy would get a needed boost if marijuana were sold openly with a “cigarette tax.” The only caveat would be to limit the age a person who could purchase pot, just like alcohol consumption. I think a “real” change must include the decriminalization of marijuana, and its sale in storefronts and convenience stores all across this country. Barry Samuels, Owner, Golden Notebook

Henry Hudson Expedition in 1609

On his return the English arrested him for sailing under the Dutch flag, yet in 1610, wealthy Londoners financed what would become his last voyage. Similar hardships and dangers this time finally led to mutiny. Hudson, his young son and several others were set adrift in icy waters and were never heard from again. Hudson’s expeditions were of inestimable value in extending geographical knowledge that greatly aided the early commercial and industrial development of New York. There is an abundance of historic and creative talent celebrating the Quadricentennial in and around Woodstock. The Jane Bloodgood-Abrams Hudson River School painters worked nearby and forever captured the beauty of the area and many artists continue the tradition. This summer and fall look for numerous exhibits, projects and activities to honor Henry Hudson and our river. For more information, visit www.ulstertourism.info Pat Horner We celebrate the 1969 launch of the Clearwater sloop by Pete Seeger, bringing attention and conscience to the pollution of the Hudson.



a novelist whose second novel, Quicksand, Theodore Dreiser called one of the six great novels of the world.) The Art Students League from New York City also had a school in town from about 1905 to 1920 and again from the ‘40s to the late ‘70s. The land itself was another reason artists settled here over the years. This rocky soil made land cheaper here than the rich farmlands the Dutch settled on the other side of the Hudson River. And the trees covering the mountains attract the moisture that sometimes gives the light that ethereal, otherworldly quality. The mountains drew artists here as much as the other way around.*

Woodstock: A Brief Look at Why the Artists Came When you hear the name “Woodstock,” the first thing that many people think of is the famous music festival. But did you know that it was originally billed as the Woodstock Music and Art Fair? Yes, a lot of the famous rock musicians lived and wrote here, but the town was an artists’ haven long before those musicians came, and had already built a reputation as a place that tolerates nonconformity.

With the creative spirit came a regard for people who think way outside the box. The wildest thinkers of their day felt right at home here, and today some say you’re not allowed to live in Woodstock unless you have a conspiracy theory. But being a bastion for freethinkers has also engendered positive action. Now that we have elected a president who represents all of the people, at a time when the Hudson Valley is burgeoning with new endeavors reflecting our ecological conscience, we can hold a sense of rejuvenation even when the economy is bleak.

But Ralph, wealthy and aloof, was a bit too authoritarian for some people’s tastes. Prime among them was Hervey White. Hervey broke away from Byrdcliffe and built the Maverick concert hall in the forest and a theater in a stone quarry, forming his own community in the process whose intent was more on revelry. Sexual freedom and women’s equality were part of it. With his bearded good looks and charisma, Hervey White–no hat, long hair, tight pants, and long red necktie–was the original hippie. (He was also

Great dancers and singers and actors have performed here and still do. Writers, composers, painters, poets, potters, sculptors, and performers; jewelry makers, woodworkers, filmmakers, people Heather Jachim who create with metal and fiber and any other conceivable medium live here. Byrdcliffe was founded with the ideal that art should be a part of daily life for everyone, not just the well-to-do. In a town where even the banks and real estate offices double as art galleries, you can feel the original vibe: the philosophy that of all the arts, that of living is the greatest. Carol Mickel Cadmus *For the full story, read Alf Evers’ Woodstock: History of an American Town.



When Ralph Whitehead founded the Byrdcliffe artists’ colony here in 1903 with a school for painting and the decorative crafts, the Arts and Crafts Movement was in full swing. It was a backlash against the Industrial Revolution, and his colony attracted people who wanted the joy of creating things by hand. The idea was to make everyday useful things unique and beautiful. Intellect and writing and exchanging ideas were held as vital.

Woodstock, the more than 100-year-old “Colony

of The Arts,” takes great delight in highlighting and promoting the unique talent that lives, displays and performs throughout the community year-round. The Woodstock Arts Consortium was founded to assist the vast local arts community, creating “Second Saturdays,” an event held May through December on the second Saturday of each month. Arts groups and businesses participate in the town-wide celebration to host gallery openings, classical and current musical programs, as well as vibrant theatrical performances. Festivities include walking tours of the historic hillside Byrdcliffe Arts and Crafts Colony and concerts at The Maverick, home to the oldest continuous summer chamber music festival in the United States.
