Jimi Hendrix's 1969 Woodstock Concert to Screen at Town Hall Theater, 1/11

In celebration of the 70th Anniversary of Jimi Hendrix's Birth and available for the very first time, Jimi Hendrix's unforgettable August 1969 Woodstock concert will be shown in its entirety on the big screen at Middlebury's Town Hall Theater. The performance stands as one of the finest in rock music history and includes "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)," "Fire," "Purple Haze" and "Foxey Lady" as well as Hendrix's dramatic interpretation of the "Star Spangled Banner."

The concert film is preceded by a fascinating road to Woodstock documentary, directed by Grammy Award winner Bob Smeaton (Beatles Anthology, Band Of Gypsys, Festival Express), which reveals the struggle to stage the legendary festival and secure Hendrix as its headline artist. It includes footage and interviews with his band members such as Billy Cox and Mitch Mitchell, and Woodstock's promoter Michael Lang.

This presentation features the original 16mm footage digitally restored together with a stunning new sound mix by legendary engineer Eddie Kramer. Kramer originally recorded the Woodstock festival and also served Jimi Hendrix as his recording engineer throughout his entire career. Jimi Hendrix - Live at Woodstock will be shown at Middlebury's Town Hall Theater on Friday, January 11 at 8 pm. Tickets are $10, and may be purchased at www.townhalltheater.org, 802 382-9222, at the THT Box Office (Mon-Sat, Noon - 5 pm) or at the door.
