Show Review - Richie Havens, 3.29.08, Peach's Grill

Review and Photos by Scott Preston

richie havens, folk musicI always enjoy when Richie Havens makes his annual trip through the state of Ohio. Peachs Grill in Yellow Springs, OH holds less than 200 people. Richie also had 2 very talented musicians playing with him, Walter Parks on guitar and Stephanie Winters on cello. I have rarely ever been to a show where single person in the bar was paying attention to what was happening on the stage. Everyone in the venue was hanging on every word that Richie spoke. It just shows the respect that the man receives. He started off the evening with Dylan's All Along the Watchtower. Followed a few songs later by Maggie's Farm. Richie is truly a master of interpretation of Bob Dylan's music. Shortly thereafter Richie sang his signature song Freedom.
