WOODSTOCK‘S 50th ANNIVERSARY


Sweetwater on Stage
Sweetwater at Woodstock 1969

It’s hard to believe that so much time has passed, yet to us, the surviving members of SWEETWATER, it seems like yesterday. Oddly enough for us, there is more activity surrounding this year’s anniversary than at any time since we played there on that fateful weekend in 1969.

Over the years, we have participated in dozens of domestic and international news interviews, TV interviews (VH1 & History Channel), contributed our words and photos to several Woodstock books, magazines and internet articles.


Rhino Records issued several different variations of WOODSTOCK box sets, featuring the live music from those three days in 1969, most with Sweetwater songs included.
