On Aug. 24, Nels Cline (Wilco), Scott Metzger (JRAD, Wolf!), Vernon Reid (Living Color) and Joel Harrison will assemble as the Alternative Guitar Summit in Woodstock, NY for a celebration of 50 years of the Woodstock Festival.
The gig will take place at the town’s Colony club, and it appears to be a repeat of the band’s March 2019 Alternative Guitar Summit at NYC’s (Le) Poisson Rouge.
“For countless guitarists Woodstock was a life-changing experience,” reads the show description. “Now fifty years later AGS brings together some of our era’s most singular improvising guitarists to seek new vistas with this powerful, epochal music.”
The August show will see Cline performing the music of Santana, Metzger performing The Who, Reid paying tribute to Sly Stone, CSNY, and Jimi Hendrix and Joel Harrison and Grateful Havens performing the music of Richie Havens and the Grateful Dead.
