Spirit Of The Sixties Lives On In Woodstock

user
  As you walk along the Main Street of Woodstock, New York, it is often hard to tell which decade you are in.

The music that spills out of the street is more 1960s rock than current urban hip hop…..in short, the spirit of dissidence, individuality and questioning of the institution...
