Not Woodstock, But Close

In 1969 a loaf of bread cost less than a quarter,
a gallon of gas was thirty cents, and the average Joe pulled in $6,500 a
year in wages. “Aquarius” topped the charts, junior high sweethearts
danced to “Hey Jude” and those with $18 to splurge on three days of
music headed towards Yasgur’s farm in Bethel, NY.That was also the year
that the five-member band, New Riders of the Purple Sage emerged from
the psychedelic rock scene in San Francisco.
Forty years later a loaf of bread will cost you a couple bucks and
change, you check your bank account before saying “fill-er-up” and the
New Riders, a bit grayer, are still going strong. Last week they
celebrated their 40th birthday with a concert at Turkey Trot Acres in
Candor. Their music, a blend of country rock and psychedelic jamband
reminiscent of the Dead, is still as fresh and new as it was in the last
millennium. Even their rendition of traditional folksong “Pretty
Peggy-O” added enough spice to get people dancing on the lawn.
It wasn’t Woodstock, but it could have been. Vendors clad in tie-dyed
T-shirts and beads hawked CD’s and candles. The crowd, coming from all
over the east and as far away as Arizona and California, sampled Finger
Lakes wines and went back for seconds of the chocolate birthday cake.
Fans had an opportunity to sit around picnic tables and chow down on
barbecue with band members. Graphic artist Kate Dwyer, who designed the
birthday bash poster, drove up from Massachusetts in a car that is
crammed to the gills with sleeping bags, a tent, and camp cookware. “I
spent the past week with my fiancÚ, following you guys through the last
leg of your summer tour,” Dwyer told drummer Johnny Markowski. “Next
year we’re taking two weeks off.”
Before the band took the stage, Pete Clare toasted their 40 years.
Nineteen-sixty-nine was a pivotal year, he said and then he invited
Vietnam veterans and anyone who attended the Woodstock festival to join
the band for a photo opportunity.
Though a couple members look like card-carrying AARP members, the New
Riders have not lost their sound. They began the concert with “Where I
come from”, the title track of their new album. The CD, released this
June, was “born at Turkey Trot,” says guitarist Michael Falzarano.
The band likes the rustic lodge so much that they rented the lodge for a
week of “woodshedding”. In March of 2008 they turned the small dining
room into a recording studio and began putting the lyrics and tunes
together. Then they took the songs on the road for some fine-tuning
before recording the album.
Markowski said that he’s already thinking about their next album.
“Though we’ve got enough for a double CD,” he said adding, “I’d like to
return here, to Turkey Trot for another week to work on the music.”
