Levon Helm played Woodstock in 1969 and 1995 with The Band. He's also lived in the Town of Woodstock for decades. Today, Tuesday, June 30, Levon released a new record, "Electric Dirt." The artwork was Levon's concept, executed by Woodstock artist Mike DuBois, who has done a lot of work for another Woodstock band, the Grateful Dead. Visit www.levonhelm.com to check out some of Levon's new tunes.

The weekly drum circle in Woodstock, N.Y., is a lively, colorful, rhythmic and generally uplifting event. And it's fairly spontaneous..

This picture is for the Woodstock Diamond Dance Festival, set for July 24-26, 1766 Glasco Turnpike, Woodstock. There is something Shakespearean, and futuristic Harlequin-esque about these costumes that is just so, well, Woodstock. If you're in town, call 845-679-7757 for information.

Pete Fornatale is a New York City DJ who has published a book, "Back to the Garden,' that features first-hand accounts of Woodstock - something of a novel approach to a story that's been dissected to death. Pete's got some good stories in here, most notably, Roger Daltrey of The Who having a dream about Woodstock three weeks before arriving there....Pete will be at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, at the original site, on July 21.

Also regarding The Vibes, Crosby, Stills & Nash, who also played Woodstock, closed out the festival this weekend. I spoke to Graham Nash a few weeks ago for a story that ran Sunday in the Poughkeepsie Journal: http://www.poughkeepsiejournal.com/article/20090726/LIFE/907260306/1005/LIFE

Woodstock concert promoter Michael Lang appeared on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" last week. Check it out: http://www.hulu.com/watch/86206/late-night-with-jimmy-fallon-michael-lang The funny thing here is that Fallon grew up in Saugerties, just a few miles east on Route 212 from the Town of Woodstock, where Lang has lived for years. Also - Lang held Woodstock '94 in Saugerties, not far from Jimmy's old neighborood.

I covered a sweet story about two weeks ago, about a second-grade class at Woodstock Elementary School who worked with a local guitar player, who is also a carpenter, and a local artist, on a lesson program about woodworking, music, art and peace. The guitar pictured here is the end result of their project, which they called, "Another Guitar for Peace." You can read about it here: http://www.poughkeepsiejournal.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=2009908020303

I spent the morning of Friday, Aug. 7, up in Woodstock at WDST FM, talking on the air about the Poughkeepsie Journal's big Woodstock special section, publishing Sunday, Aug. 9. WDST is in the Bearsville Theater complex, just outside downtown Woodstock. The Bearsville Theater and several other buildings were built by Woodstock music impresario Albert Grossman, who managed Bob Dylan, The Band, Janis Joplin and many others. He is also buried on the grounds......

By the way, I also shot the other photos below related to the "Taking Woodstock" screening...that's John W.

Taking Woodstock" was screened at the Tinker Street Cinema in Woodstock, N.Y., on Aug. 8. On my walk to the theater through downtown Woodstock, I came across one band that was breaking down, after having performed on the village green, a second that was still playing a few blocks away, just off the street, and this guy, strumming away. It was just another typical day in downtown Woodstock. Photo by John W. Barry/Poughkeepsie Journal

Philippe Petit, if you'' remember, is the tight-rope walker who walked on a wire between the World Trade Center's twin towers several decades ago. A documentary about him, and that feat, won the Oscar this year. Petit, who was in attendance at Saturday's screening of "Taking Woodstock" in Woodstock, N.Y., lives very close to this famous town, in West Shokan, where, by the way, Jimi Hendrix lived at the time of the Woodstock festival in 1969.

I have been trained as a writer but love taking pictures. When I have a camera with me, I look at idle time as opportunity time, and that was the case on Saturday, Aug. 8, when I was let into the Tinker Street Cinema early for a screening of "Taking Woodstock." Woodstock promoter Michael Lang lives in Woodstock and attended the screening. I thought this picture was simple but interesting. Photo by John W. Barry/Poughkeepsie Journal

This is a picture from the Poughkeepsie Journal archives. It's an angle I've never seen before and I find it quite striking. So - even after 40 years, we can still find new ways to view Woodstock. Amen.
