The 1969 Ann Arbor Blues Festival was the Midwest's Woodstock. A great crowd of young people converged for an incredible three-day celebration of peace and music. They grooved to the tunes of a dizzying array of legendary performers, smoked pot, drank wine, and generally had a blast. It was a landmark event that is still spoken of in hushed tones of awe and reverence among music historians. Performing was an an absolutely astounding lineup of living legends of the blues - B. B. King, Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Otis Rush, Magic Sam, Big Mama Thornton, Son House, T-Bone Walker, Lightnin' Hopkins, and on and on — at the first major blues festival in the United States.
