RIP Richie Havens

I had the opportunity to meet Richie Havens when he played @ the Willamette Valley Folk festival @ the U of Oregon. He was walking around before the concert & we all happened to spot a rainbow in the sky & enjoyed it together.
Such a soulful singer. He passed away today @ age 72, but his beautiful spirit & music live on.

I was at that show! I was so surprised because I had never heard of him before at the time and was completely moved by it. I later found out he was at Woodstock and all that. At the time I thought he was a local or regional act. Seems silly now! I have always wished someone had a recording of that show. I was wondering if you happened to remember what year that was?
