This three-part lecture-demonstration focuses on Jimi Hendrix and his contemporaries. Told through photographs and guitar technique demonstrations Jimy Bleu focuses on Hendrix’ rise to super-stardom, his tremendous impact on Popular and ‘serious music’, his indefinable musical style, his virtually unknown potential as a spiritual leader and his political awakening which coincided with the turbulent times of that era in the United States. Leonard J. Eisenberg tells the story of Jimi Hendrix through photos taken by him at three concerts in the 1960’s and recently published in his book “Photographing Jimi Hendrix.” Join Elliott Landy, official Woodstock 1969 photographer as he presents a journey highlighting Jimi Hendrix, iconic photos of Woodstock and the events and personalities of the historic late 1960’s era while telling the behind the scenes stories captured by his camera lens.
