On Wednesday, Back to the Garden 1969 will transport its audience back to the Woodstock Era as the band performs classics made famous by musicians who rocked the world during the historic gathering of 500,000 people in upstate New York.
The free performance at Calf Pasture Beach will begin at 7 p.m. and is part of the First County Bank Summer Concert Series. Attendees are encouraged to bring a picnic and comfortable seating. A parking fee of $5 per car will be charged for cars without a Norwalk beach sticker.
