In the first concert of the 2021 season on Saturday, June 12th, The Black Jacket Symphony will perform Tom Petty’s “Damn The Torpedoes”. Over the past decade, The Black Jacket Symphony has performed over 35 classic rock albums. The group of hand-picked musicians changes based on the album being performed and no sonic detail is overlooked.
On Friday, July 9th, The Ultimate Queen Celebration starring Marc Martel takes the stage at the Northside Hospital-Cherokee Amphitheater. Martel played an unseen role in the 2018 biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody.” He contributed vocal recordings that were used alongside Queen master tapes of Freddie Mercury for actor Rami Malek’s singing scenes in the movie. The Ultimate Queen Celebration is an explosive, attention-commanding tribute where some of the most iconic rock anthems of all time collide with a theatrical, eye-popping performance.
On Saturday, August 14th, Steep Canyon Rangers will perform. These Grammy winners from Asheville, North Carolina are frequent collaborators of the renowned banjoist (and occasional comedian) Steve Martin. While it’s not likely Steve Martin will be with them in Downtown Woodstock, these perennial bluegrass Billboard chart-toppers will be a hit either way.
On Saturday, September 18th, Grammy winning singer songwriter Christopher Cross will perform. Cross’ singles “Sailing”, and “Arthur’s Theme” both reached number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.
On Saturday, September 25th, Rumours will take Woodstock by storm with their authentic recreation of a live Fleetwood Mac show. Rumours will make you believe in miracles and the way of magic once again.
