WOODSTOCK – BY PETER BUFFETT … WOODSTOCK ANNIVERSARY
The latest track from Emmy-award winning musician and philanthropist, Peter Buffett, son of Warren Buffett, released his cover of “Woodstock”. The song is a true testament to the power and spark of social movements and goes all the way back to Baby Boomer roots!
Buffett has always made art that captures the spirit of the times. This new single is no different. In this re-imagining of a legendary recording, Buffett breathes contemporary life and meaning into a classic song, calling on his listeners to shake off their fears and move through life with love and courage. He discusses the inspiration behind this new project:
“Recently, I was listening to the iconic version of this song recorded by Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. It had an eerie resonance with my current life…
It’s been nearly 50 years since the event that the song was written about. The echo is becoming easier to hear. Again.
It is a vibrational wave of consciousness moving through our culture. An echo of loving, life affirming, peaceful coexistence…
We are in a position to amplify this current echo in ways that have never been possible before. Thousands of years of fear driven systems can be dissolved. Without a fight… a controlled descent of our current behaviors that will lead us to a hoped-for soft-landing. Into the garden. Back to our true nature built on safety and trust.”
Just like the music it interprets, the video is an inspiring call to action. The video depicts a classroom of students seeing themselves in videos of important protests and revolutions from America’s history. As the students walk out of the classroom to make a change of their own, it becomes evident that this music video could not be more relevant than right now. Peter Buffett’s music will resonate with babyboomers and modern listeners.
