A 4-day concert and festival event wrapped up this weekend at the original site of Woodstock marking its 50th anniversary.  For some people it was a sort-of homecoming, while others just wanted to get a feeling of the original, iconic event.

Fans of music and the history of Woodstock got to connect directly to the past through one of the musicians that played there Saturday at Bethel Woods.  For many it was also a chance to touch their own history.

Music once again filled the fields and hills at the site of Woodstock Friday.  The second day of the Golden Anniversary concerts at Bethel Woods drew a much bigger crowd of many with direct connections to the 1969 festival … but also families with young children and millennials looking for a connection to the history. 

Among the visitors, Duke Devlin says he hitchhiked to get here in 1969, and remembers the massive crowd overcoming rain, no food, sanitation issues, and a faulty sound system.

A crowd of about five thousand people wanted to recapture the feeling or relive memories at the home of Woodstock Thursday. Bethel Woods hosted the opening of a weekend of 50th anniversary concerts, with Arlo Guthrie performing on the exact date he played in 1969.


The alternative hip hop group The Black Eyed Peas once said "let's get it started in here." Here's the problem, they never really told us how to get "it" started. This week on The 315 , Joe Lee and Kevin Kloss are going to discuss what it's like trying to launch a music career from Central New York.

For this week's episode they're joined by up and coming musician TANKSLEY. They'll discuss how he got started in music, where he played his first show in CNY and he gives us a live performance as well.

A Mardi Gras Concert will heat up the Syracuse cold this weekend … while also helping to support a Performing Arts Center for people in one of the city’s struggling neighborhoods.  The event features a New Orleans legend who says music should help bridge divides.

Music will once again fill St. Paul’s Cathedral in Downtown Syracuse.  The 11th “Solstice at the Cathedral” opens Thursday.  It traces its beginnings back to a different celebration of the season.


When you think about the music being played in Central New York, what comes to mind? Jazz? Blues? maybe a little Reggae? Well how about chamber music? It might not be on the top of your list yet, but it is being perofrmed and fans are showing up to hear it.

This week on The 315 Joe Lee and Kevin Kloss are joined by Matt van der Meer, Assistant Professor at Syracuse University and Director of the Syracuse Friends of Chamber Music. He educates us on what exactly is chamber music, where is it being played, and we hear some of his favorite composition.

That's this week on The 315!
