Re: R.I.P. Ritchie Havens

I loved Ritchie Havens. That haunting airy voice could make just about anything sound profound. His slowed down version of the song, Woodstock, is still my favorite rendering of that song.

Along with Chicago great, Terry Callier, who sadly died last year, two black folk music giants have fallen.

RIP to them both.
