Forty years ago this weekend a half a million people gathered on Max Yasgur’s farm in upstate New York for Woodstock, a musical event that defined a generation and one that’s likely to remain unequaled. Today, there was a little bit of Woodstock at Menlo’s farmer’s market. Street musician Suzanne Holland brought her lovely voice, solid song repertoire, and bits of whimsy (sounds of a rooster!) to the delight of two young listeners.

I was at the El Cerrito Farmer’s Market last weekend and heard this lovely woman singing; I was was overcome with emotion. Bought two CDs which I am enjoying now. Transformed me back into my Berkeley days. I live in Maine but this music helps me relieve those times.

Thank you, Suzanne, for singing “Suzanne” to me.

Peace and love to you,
