Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real banded together this weekend for a special remote performance of the Joni Mitchell classic (and CSNY favorite) “Woodstock.”
The tune, which calls listeners to head “back to the garden,” relates perfectly to the band’s last two studio records, 2019’s Turn Off the News (Build a Garden) and this year’s Naked Garden.
As Nelson told Relix in 2019, “I’m still a believer in the counterculture being the new culture. I don’t think it died back then; the thread is still there. Maybe it subsided a little bit as things do, but it’s going to flower again in a serious way. ‘Turn off the news and build a garden’ means put the device down and cultivate the community garden. Connect with people all around you so you can actually make a difference.”
