Woodstock Folk Festival Presents “British Invasion”
A “British Invasion” concert will commemorate the 50th Anniversary of a watershed in musical history on Sunday, March 2 at 2 p.m. at Unity Spiritual Center of Woodstock (corner of Calhoun and Tryon Street near Woodstock Square). The Woodstock Folk Festival has invited a group of gifted performers to present their own versions of songs from (or inspired by) the “Invasion’s” treasury of classics.
Performers invited to recreate the era’s magic include Tricia Alexander, John Burgess & Carol Francis, Pat Gaughan, David Hawkins, Keith Johnson & Judy Matzen, Jeff Justman, The Kishwaukee Ramblers (Amy Beth, Neal Brown and Gary Plazyk), Lia McCoo, Norm Siegel, The Stage Leftovers (Pete Jonsson, Brian Murphy, Laurel Palma, Joe Pesz, Rich Prezioso and Les Urban), The Swinging Sixties (Andy Andrick, Dean Milano and Russ Ward) and Chuck VanderVennet.
Funds raised at this event will benefit the 29th Annual Woodstock Folk Festival. Suggested donation is $10. Reservations are encouraged but not required. For more information or reservations email us at email@example.com or phone 815-338-2080. Sponsorship and volunteer opportunities are available; donations welcome at any time!
The Unity Spiritual Center of Woodstock, 225 W. Calhoun St., is easily accessible from Routes I-90, 14 and 120. (Note that while ramps at I-90 and Hwy 47 now only accept I-PASS, penalty-free tolls can be paid online.) Woodstock is also on the Union Pacific/Northwest Metra train line that runs between Chicago and Harvard. The Woodstock train station is only one block from the Woodstock Square.
