Remembering Richie Havens

The music world lost one of its best on Monday with the passing of Richie Havens at the age of 72.

Remembered for his captivating performance at Woodstock (which many of us got just a small sense of in 2003 when Richie played the Tucson Folk Festival), Havens released more than 30 albums in his storied career. His soulful, gravel-throated voice may now be silent, but we'll always have hundreds of his songs to continue to share for generations to come. You'll be sure to hear many of them on many different KXCI programs in the days and weeks ahead.
