Stormstock: Oh Happy Day*

During a time of social unrest, there was Woodstock 1969. Great minds of the music world met and shaped the future of American culture. This timeless music, 48 years later, still makes us cut loose and dance. July 15, 2017 was a gorgeous evening on the Peninsula—the perfect time and place to recreate that era with a picnic on the lawn and the music of Andy & Renee and the Hard Rain Band.
