JACK AND MIKE LANGLEY

Music of Woodstock with Jack and Mike Langley 

In August, 1969, after the moon landing, a music festival called Woodstock was taking place on the east coast, and Jack Langley was starting his first semester at Drake University. 

On his way to the first day of classes, he dropped off his young son Mike at his first day of kindergarten. 

A half-century and a lifetime of music later, Jack and Mike will be performing this concert for Lifelong Learners to commemorate Woodstock, distilling an hour’s worth of music from an iconic event that lasted three days, with 33 performing acts and hundreds of songs. 

The Langleys, both lifelong musicians, songwriters, recording artists and inductees to the Iowa Rock and Roll Music Association’s Hall of Fame, have put together a concert of some of their favorite songs from the stage at Yasgur’s farm from Joan Baez, The Grateful Dead, The Band, Johnny Winter, CSN&Y, Janis Joplin, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Who, Jimi Hendrix and more.

Ghost Songs with Mike Langley 

On Halloween, when the veil between the spirit world and ours is lifted, Mike Langley will be pouring you a nightcap of Ghost Songs. Gathered over many years, and most recently over the past decade with Mike’s band The Groovediggers, this repertoire of old folk songs, as well as original Langley compositions, is a bubbling brew of specters, spirits and graveyard musings.
