Happy birthday Richie Havens!
Happy 71st birthday to folk music icon Richie Havens, who earned well-deserved notoriety after wowing the crowd at Woodstock with his rhythmically spirited three-hour set. Richie has released 26 albums over a 40-year period and continues to perform. Aside from music he has dedicated his life to teaching young people about environment issues. Let’s take a listen to Richie’s brilliant acoustic version of “Here Comes the Sun” on this snowy winter day.
