Local Recalls Woodstock Experience as 50th Anniversary Nears

By Cara Pallone


The original Woodstock was held in Bethel, New York, Aug. 15-18, 1969. Almost half a million people were there, including local resident Chris Bonebrake. This August marks 50 years since the original legendary music festival took place, but Bonebrake remembers it clearly.

Well, as clearly as someone who attended the original Woodstock should remember it…

The Sheridan Arts Foundation’s mini Woodstock to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the legendary music festival is this Thursday, Aug. 1, with “Kiss the Sky: The Jimi Hendrix Re-experience.” And Friday, Aug. 2, with “Just Like Janis.”

Doors are at 8 p.m. with the show at 9 p.m. Tickets are $25 general admission and $35 reserved seats in the balcony. Two-day passes for GA tickets are $40. Go to sheridanoperahouse.com for more info.
