Remembering Richie Havens

Yesterday, singer songwriter Richie Havens passed away at his home in Jersey City. As a seminal figure in the folk/rock scene in the 1960s and 70s, Richie will always be remembered as the opening act at Woodstock on August 15 of 1969. In the Spring of 2006 Richie spent time at the Sonic Arts Center recording a yet unreleased children’s album along with SAC student Pat Noth. We will always remember the moments he spent here at the Center and his gentle and congenial spirit.
