AUGUST 1969: The Women of Woodstock

 

AUGUST 1969: A TRIBUTE TO The WOmen of woodstock

AUGUST 1968: A TRIBUTE TO THE WOMEN OF WOODSTOCK: From the Greenwich Village folk scene to the psychedelic height of Haight-Ashbury, Joan Baez, Janis Joplin, Melanie, and Grace Slick sang songs of love, heartache, and social injustice. It seems almost pre-destined that these women would come together on a dairy farm in upstate New York for “three days of peace and music” and transform a generation. August 1969: A Tribute to the Women of Woodstock celebrates these four women who remain symbols of the legendary festival, leaving an indelible and provocative mark on popular music, American culture, and the world.

 

NASHVILLE GAL

 

Nashville Gal

Ask many fans for their favorites and you are bound to hear some hear familiar names: Johnny, George, Willie, and Hank. However, the 1950’s, 60’s, & 70’s also bred a crop of fiery, hard-living women who could down a shot of whiskey, bounce a baby on their arm, and write a killer song. While singing songs about life’s heartache is not exclusive to one gender, the gals of classic country music set the bar as high as their hair. From the Smokey Mountains to the Kentucky coalmines, these ground-breaking artists made their way to Nashville to sing their truth with haunting sincerity…and sometimes stirring up a little controversy along the way. They would break down walls and top the charts, becoming some of the most important artists in American music history. NASHVILLE GAL showcases the lives and music of Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, Tammy Wynette, and Dolly Parton. You’ll hear classic hits like “Walkin After Midnight,” “Stand By Your Man”, "Coal Miner’s Daughter”, “Jolene” and more...as well as tales of how they were crowned the Queens of Country Music.
