Celebrate American Independence With The British Invasion!

Woodstock, NY – The Golden Notebook Bookstore presents a discussion and celebration of the music of the British Invasion with three experts on British Rock of the 1960s-1970s: Tony Fletcher, Jonathan Gould, and Gordon Thompson on Saturday, July 2nd at 3:30 PM at the Kleinert/James Arts Center, Woodstock, New York. The panel will be moderated by Doug Grunther of WDST’s (100.1 FM) Woodstock Roundtable.

The musicians, performances, recordings, and producers of the British pop scene of the 1960s…who did what, when and why? Tony Fletcher (Dear Boy: The Life of Keith Moon), Jonathan Gould (Can’t Buy Me Love: The Beatles, Britain and America), and Gordon Thompson (Please Please Me: Sixties British Pop, Inside Out) will share stories, play music samples, answer questions and put it all in context with the help of the Woodstock Roundtable’s Doug Grunther.

    would be greatly appreciated. Appreciate it

    I believe what you said made a lot of sense. But, what about this?
    suppose you added a little content? I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to
    run your blog, however what if you added a post title that grabbed a person’s
    attention? I mean » Celebrate American Independence With The
    British Invasion! is kinda boring. You should peek at Yahoo’s home page and
    watch how they create news headlines to get viewers interested.

    You might add a related video or a related picture or
    two to get people interested about everything’ve got to say.
    In my opinion, it would bring your posts a little bit more

    I just wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Besides that, wonderful
