Richie Havens...Tunes For Today

...my father built the stage at Woodstock + my mother always loved Richie Havens...I imagine that is why he has always been one of my favorite voices. Today when I heard he had passed on I felt this strange emotion wash over me...there weren't really words, instead I went to listen to his music. His voice has always struck me as the calm after the storm...strong yet perfectly peceful. His rendition of the classic Van Morrison song Tupelo Honey has lulled me to sleep many nights over the years...
