From Woodstock to Winters
While most people know Richie Havens from his appearance at Woodstock and from his days playing the folk circuit in Greenwich Village, he still records and tours regularly. He’s currently on the road in support of his 26th album, Grace of the Sun, on his boutique label, Stormy Forest. Although his newer music is a bit of a departure from his formative years, songs like “Red Flowers” and “Pulling the Stone” reveal an artist with still more tricks in his handbag. If the spirited cover of Bob Dylan’s “All Along the Watchtower” doesn’t make you yearn for your inner flower child, perhaps you’re just too young. Fortunately, it’s never too late to get schooled. Richie Havens plays the Palms Playhouse, located at 13 Main Street in Winters, on Thursday, October 12. Tickets are $32, and the show starts at 8 p.m. For more information, visit www.richiehavens.com or www.palmsplayhouse.com.
