Born in Brooklyn, 1941, Richie Havens was the eldest of nine
children. He was of American Indian (Blackfeet) descent on his father's side and of the British West Indies on his mother's.
Richie was an American singer-songwriter guitarist. His music encompassed elements of folk, soul, and rhythm and blues. He is best known for his intense and rhythmic guitar style (often in open tunings), soulful covers of pop and folk songs, and his opening
performance at the 1969 Woodstock Festival.
Richie toured all over the country for 45
years singing to audiences he loved. In 2003, the National Music Council
awarded Havens the American Eagle Award for his place as part
of America’s musical heritage and for providing "a rare and inspiring
voice of eloquence, integrity and social responsibility."
In 2012, Richie announced that he would stop
touring due to health concerns. On April
22, 2013 Richie died of a heart attack at 72.
