Woodstock - A 50th Anniversary Celebration
This multi-media and participatory 90-minutes-plus program incorporates rare recordings, archival video, insightful storytelling, group singing, and guided music-making.
Passion for music provides fuel for the journey of Western Massachusetts-based Craig Harris.
The author of "Heartbeat, Warble and the Electric Powwow: American Indian Music" (2016)
and "The Band: Pioneers of Americana Music" (2014),
Harris' music-oriented articles, reviews, and photographs have appeared in newspapers, magazines, and websites for more than four decades. A skilled percussionist, Harris has appeared in concert and/or on recordings with Rod MacDonald, C.J. Chenier, Jonathan Edwards, Greg Brown, Melanie, Rick Danko (The Band), and Merl Saunders.
He currently plays with the Gaea Star Band, with whom he co-hosts the weekly Gaea Crystal Radio Hour for the Dream Vision 7 Radio Network. Applehead / SONY released their CD, "Who We Are" in November 2015.
Possessing a masters’ degree in education, Harris taught music in public and charter schools for a quarter-century before launching, in 2009, his multicultural, participatory, and fun-for-all-ages Drum Away the Blues program .
