Big Top Chautauqua: The Music of Woodstock
Saturday, June 12, 2021 7pm
at the Sauk Prairie River Arts Center (105-9th Street, Prairie du Sac)
In 1969 400,000 people gathered on a dairy farm Northwest of New York City for the three-day festival known as Woodstock. That was fifty years ago, and now in this new Big Top show the Blue Canvas Orchestra pays tribute to the festival, to the artists, and to the spirit of the sixties that was epitomized by the legendary event.
