We've Got to Get Ourselves Back to the Garden: Inside the Music and Times of the Woodstock Generation

Featuring Rob Kapilow

Join Rob Kapilow for an exclusive look at material from his upcoming book We’ve Got to Get Ourselves Back to the Garden: Inside the Music of the Woodstock Generation. This unique program mixes chapter excerpts, primary research, and fantastic, classic rock audio clips in order to bring to life the remarkable decade that culminated in the legendary Woodstock Festival during the summer of 1969. The program zooms in—to the drum fills, bass lines, trumpet licks, and background vocals that made songs like “Dancing in the Street” great—and zooms out to the racial, cultural, and social turmoil of a revolutionary decade that led to a new musical voice for America. Including time for audience Q&A, the program takes a decade that has become part of our collective nostalgia and brings it thrillingly back to life.
