Candyman Strings & Things, the iconic Santa Fe music store, happens to be in its 50th year, so what better way to acknowledge two anniversaries at once than to throw a music festival locally, said Rand Cook, who co-owns the store with his wife, Cindy Cook.
“The year 1969 was a very important time,” he said. “The peace, love, live movement. Landing on the moon. The Vietnam War. Woodstock. All of these things were major markers in time.”
So, on Sunday, Sept. 22, The Candyman will celebrate it all with a daylong splurge of local bands doing their own music, followed by a tribute to songs from Woodstock, all at the Santa Fe Brewing Company’s The Bridge space.
